However, normally "river glass" does not meet the criteria for beach glass - that is, to be beach glass, it should be tumbled, rounded, and fully frosted.
On the other hand, river glass can be quite exciting to find, as often the shards come from very old settlements along the rivers from times past.
Also, there is a chance that you will find entire bottles, which are rarely found in wave-tumbled beaches.
