Does anyone have a supplier/recommendation for minature beer glasses and bottles?

I have some beer crates which look great but looking to detail the beer garden scene. Mxion have wine bottles, empty wine glasses and spirit bottles but looking more for the style you get with Preiser figures:

I tried looking at dolls house bier glasses but they're far too large. Any tips would be appreciated!

I've just received some new paint brushes with the tips protected by clear plastic tubes, I wonder if ones of a suitable diametre cut to size height wise would work

Most the doll's house items are over scale, but are these any good?

Yes old biro pen tubes would make good glasses, I use them to protect brushes. A small circle of plastic glazing cut via a hole punch would work super glued to the base, ay need some trimming after the glue dried. Clear or coloured straws would work as well with some plasticard round rod to make handkes.

Mini-art have a selection of 1/35 scale kits of bottles, beer and wine cases etc. that might be worth a look. I've got a box full somewhere that I hoped to deck out my Orient Express restaurant and bar cars with.

I actually ended up going with these in the end. Slightly overscale but close enough at our scale! Thanks for the recommendations, everyone!
Indeed. From 6ft above, it's hard to tell.
