July 8, 2013 | Glass News

According to a report in the Portland Business Journal, "Oregon Brewers Festival organizers are adding a touch of glass to the event. For the first time, attendees will fill their taster glasses with beer that's  poured into actual glass receptacles. The festival had used plastic glasses for the pourings but made the changes for both environmental and taste reasons."
