The advent of "designer glasses" has apparently made the theft of glasses from pubs even worse. Stella Artois and Guinness have both recently launched new style glasses, which have become a popular item to take home after a night out. The Hogshead (now Museum) in Orchard Square claims to lose over 20 glasses a week, mainly to students. Manager Mark Simmonite says that when students arrive at university they often forget to bring glasses, cutlery and ash trays with them. His pub seems to provide a place where all of these items can be "borrowed" and never returned. The Devonshire Cat on Wellington Street has a special "Yard of Ale" glass designed for Belgian Kwak beer. The beer costs £2.70 but you'll have to put down a £10 deposit for the glass because it's so popular that many customers are tempted to take it home with them!
