I know from experience that better than standard whine glasses can make a notable difference but is it that way for beer? I typically just use a Chimay goblet for anything good.
Yeah, price/quality does come into play at some level. I have a pricey wine glass that I use for lambic and gueuze beer. The beers I use those inexpensive snifters for, though, are typically so assertive in aroma that it wouldn't matter what glass you use so long as it features a deep bowl (Imperial Stout, say, so basically any snifter or a goblet will work great).
Those Pier 1 snifters aren't durable, but they certainly do the job with beer.
