THE CLASSIC GUINNESS pint glass is as distinctive as the famous black stuff itself.

But there are photos cropping up online that appear to show a new, slender Guinness pint glass being used in England. The strange nature of the new pint glass has us wondering what is going on.

The first sighting can be found on The Raven Pub’s Twitter account. The bar is based in West London, and they posted this picture earlier in January:

Next up, Reddit user Keith11 posted the below photo online yesterday, and it appears to show the same elongated pint glass being drunk – this time in Oddest Bar in the Manchester suburb of Chorlton Cum Hardy:

Could this be the introduction of a brand new pint glass for the famous stout?

We have contacted Guinness for comment on the matter.
