Pretty cool glass, looks like it originates out of Italy by a craft brewer there.
Here's another one:

A buddy at work brought me an italian cooking magagzine that had an article about the up and coming craft beer movement in Italy... looks like its growing as fast or faster than the american market. A couple examples:

http://www.birradelborgo.it/en
http://www.birrificiomontegioco.com/

Looks like some of these may be being imported to the US... anyone seen any of these around? I'm thinking if they're anywhere it would be east coast/NY area... cause we ain't gettin em out west...

I have seen a bunch of new Italian bombers in larger liquor stores in denver. I've been curious to try them. I've only had maybe a few Italian beers besides Peroni or Birra Morreti, and they've all been.... oooookk... but kinda bland. Next time I go to Argonaut I'll try to remember to find out what they are.

DFH was involved with him though, right? Saw that in some video. I'm surprised they got involved with two restaurants.

We get bottles birra del borgo at a pizza place in Chicago right by my house. It should be a good beer, but unfortunately it's expensive, stale and usually flat. I'm sure the shipping has a lot to do with that.

I was also able to try the same beers on tap at Eataly my last time there and the two I had were fantastic. They were on the upper end of the NYC beer price spectrum ($10 for 8oz, I think), but they were tasty. The food and atmosphere there is awesome.

I'm pretty sure the Italians getting into beer is a sign of the apocalypse. There might be a Vatican edict issued before long! Maybe it's because the Pope is German.....

All those unemployed mammoni should have plenty of time to home brew up something interesting. So I'd expect a Craft Beer revolution in Italy any time now

"unemployed mammon i"!!! Lol!

Eataly is expensive as is drinking at Beer Table. You get to try rare and good beer but you pay through the nose! It is a real shame. I went there once before the rooftop brewery was open and tried to get a seat at the bar. It was like a 2 hour wait. So I stood at the bar and the bartender handed me this huge leather bound list with several pages of wines to choose from and only 4 beers on the list. That totally surprised me and turned me off to the place. Isn't the place owned and operated by brewery owners? I would have thought that beer would have a bigger part in the place. I'll go back to try the rooftop brewery just to say I've been there but it will not be a regular stop on my NYC visits.

so I ordered a couple of those glasses I first posted... I could only find them at the brewdog site... only listed in euros... so after all was said and done, came out to almost $60, the majority of that was shipping... they better not be broken when they get here!
