If you would like a clean glass at at point please go to the glasses stand who will exchange it for a clean glass. The glasses are marked with third of a pint lines should you wish to try a wider range of different beers. You can take the glass away as a souvenir or return it to the glasses stall for a refund. No glass, no beer!
