    Fortunately not completely gone, a couple of our regular haunts still have a few, sometimes only 1 or 2, and as I'm an irregular regular they know that's the type of glass I prefer! Causes amusement when I explain that the dimples are for hand grip, not the handle, so if the handle breaks you don't loose your pint! My Dad used to call straight glasses "slippers", 'cos they could slip through your hand!

    You get less beer in a jug compared to a "straight" glass (or nonic as they're sometimes called). They were great for the landlord in their day!

    There’s a fair few whose absence is regretful - MOCAS being the biggest loss imo - but Druk no longer being with us stills hurts.
