Guide: How to choose plastic pint glasses

With so many plastic pint glasses available to buy, which ones do you choose?

Every glass is different, so we’ve put together a guide to help you make the right choice when buying your glasses.

Quality is guaranteed with all the plastic glasses at Inn Supplies – no matter what the type is.

Low-cost glasses

Low cost pint glasses

For many, the price is the most important factor.

Flexi pint glasses provide value-for-money and feature a slightly opaque appearance.

Made from polypropylene, the plastic has a high degree of natural flexibility which makes it very resistant to cracking or other similar damage. When squashed, it leaves no small shards of plastic.

These types of glasses are used throughout Europe and deliver a consistent value, year-in-year-out. Glasses are CE Marked and suitable for commercial use.

Eco-friendlier glasses

Biodegradable pint glasses

PLA biodegradable pint glasses offer a great environmentally friendly alternative to traditional oil-based plastic glasses.  

Perfect for beer, cider, or any cold drinks, these glasses are made from PLA, a renewable material which will degrade in landfill. Glasses are CE Marked and suitable for commercial use.

Strong glasses

Strong pint glasses

Katerglass pint glasses are widely known as one of the strongest pint glasses available.

These glasses offer unparalleled strength because they are made from tough polypropylene plastic. Slightly flexible, glasses offer a premium feel.

Thick sidewalls guarantee durability and rolled rims remove sharp edges. Glasses are CE Marked and suitable for commercial use.

Unbreakable glasses

Reusable pint glasses

If your pint glass must be reusable and unbreakable, a crystal polystyrene or polycarbonate glass is the one to choose.

Reusable pint glasses come in two ranges.

Our ECON range includes cost-effective “light use” products, whilst the ELITE range offers a more premium and heavier feel. Glasses are CE Marked where stated and suitable for commercial use.
