Ask Real Beer

August 2000

I am looking for beer glasses from my old Polish neighborhood in Detroit. They were called 'bumbas'. They held a full bottle, or can. Your hand could fit around the base and there was a big ball type, or globe that the beer sat in. The dishwasher broke the last one. Too old I guess.

From Beer Dave: The glass you are discussing is know as a fishbowl. These were great. Many flea markets across the U.S. will have these available.
