A tall glass (traditionally 3 feet) that was originally produced in England back in the days when travel by horse-drawn coach was common. When a coach would stop at an Inn to rest the horses and feed the passangers, the Coach driver would have to stay on the coach to handle the reigns. Since the coach driver wanted beer, but was way up there on the coach while the barmaids where way down there on the ground, the yard glass was developed to help the barmaids hand the beer up to the coach driver. A yard glass typically has a large mouth, a long skinny neck, and a large bulb at the bottom. It takes a bit of practice, but it certainly is an entertaining and traditional way to enjoy beer.
