RiteBrew has a great selection of beer tasting gear including some unique sampler glasses (including Belgian and Pilsner Style Sampler Glasses) along with a couple of very reasonably price sample paddles. They have a finished 4 position paddle for just $6.39 and an unfished 6 position paddle for just $5.99. Here’s a quick look at the 4 hole sampler paddle using RiteBrew’s Barbary Style Tasting Glasses.
A look at the paddle… Hey it looks nice!
Close up of the wood grain and finish (click for a closer view). It’s my theory that these holes are here to make it easy to get wet glasses off. That way no vacuum can form.
I’m going to call the size of these holes about 1 7/8″
The paddle loaded up with Barbary Style Glasses
Side view. It’s worth noting that the Barbary Style are the only glasses that RiteBrew sells
that fit in their paddles. The other glasses are very nice, just don’t plan on using them with the paddle.
My Gemco 4 Ounce Measuring/Tasting Glasses - Hands On – fit nicely in the paddle. These are nice little multi-tasking glasses. Nice tasters and handy measuring glasses.

The Barbary Glasses fit great
A look at just the Barbary Glass
The capacity of these glasses is listed at 4.5 ounces. My Emsa Perfect Beaker shows them at about 5 ounces. So 4.5 ounces usable with 1/2 ounce for headspace.
The Barbary Glass filled with some delicious RiteBrew Oatmeal Stout
These are high quality and for around $6 they are… a bargain. The Barbary Style glasses are also great little tasting glasses.
