Great but LATE!
"I purchased this for a friends 21st birthday present two days before the event. I paid the extra for next day delivery (Wednesday). I was then told that it would arrive before 9pm (huh?) and I could track it online. I tracked it to the local delivery station where it was dispatched for delivery at 11am on Wednesday. So I waited. Imagine my surprise when it arrived on Saturday morning. It ruined my 21st gift as everyone had returned to University when it arrived.
Drinkstuff refunded my delivery fee, which was nice, but no one has answered the puzzle of how something was "out for delivery" for 4 days. Disappointed but it was a great product.... pity the intendee did not get to enjoy it."

"Ordered a large quantity of the Yard of Ales and arranged shipping to Canada myself. I was concerned about shipping these glasses overseas, however when they arrived I was impressed at how well packaged they were. Not even one broken (out of 72 ordered). The glasses were exactly what I was looking for, good quality and exactly as advertised. They are going to look great in my new pub! This company is reliable and customer-service focused, something that seems a bit hard to find these days. Definitely will be ordering from them again."

"I received this excellent item very quickly. The quality is excellent and it has already had a fair bit of use!! Really impressed with the service and value for money! CHEERS!"

"I couldn't recommend this thing high enough. First off I was wary about getting it mailed over to Ireland but within 3 days it arrived very well packaged, safe and sound. The glass itself is a thing of beauty, well made of thick section glass, wonderful to look at. Aside from that I have a lot of celebrations to attend this summer so I'll be putting it to good use. 10/10. If I need more booze related showpieces I'll be back to these guys in a shot."
Padraig McCarthy - Dublin, 11th April '11
"I love this, I use it whenever there is party, or some sort of celebration, my mates love it, so basically it is used by everyone. It arrived well packaged as well."
Tim - Manchester, 17th March '11
"Was great to order this online and receive it straight away. Yard glass as expected for stag weekend in Oxford. Great site for such things."

"I had a yard glass shipped a while ago to the US. I'm not sure if you remember doing this or not, but I couldn't locate one here, and across the pond was the only place I could find one. I had to speak to someone and I believe it was you, but the yard glass made it, and I've been putting it to good use. I had a carrying case made for it, and a nice stand as well. So, just wanted to thank ya for the trouble and the you tube link is me at a party, showin people how to drink. Thanks again."

"I bought one a couple of years ago and my german friends love it.Every time we attend some ones birthday or have a cellar party they ask me if I am bringing the strange glass thing. All the new players in the football team have to christen it."

"I'm a veteran ale drinker but recently I had swayed towards alcopops and baby sham, finding they attracted my sort of crowd in the public house. but since i bought my yard of ale glass the boys have been knocking on my door all weekend!"

"5 seconds for 2 pints in a yard glass is the record... Not the point I'd have thought, fill the thing and see what they can do then! My best for a full glass is 15.6 seconds"
Nick - Wiltshire, 2nd January '04
"I got my boyfriend a yard of ale as a birthday present. Now everyone that comes round has to try it!"
Jo - London, 23rd November '03
