Beer Mugs and German Beer Steins
Beer mugs are made to be social. These types of personalized beer glasses have a sturdy handle which you hold while drinking to keep your beer from getting warm. Plus these beer mugs large volume (generally 20oz+) allows for some sloshing while you toast a hearty “cheers!” Their cousins, the beer stein, are much the same, but some feature lids, a practice dating back to medieval times. The story goes that the types of beer glasses at the time were made of metal, stoneware, or animal horn. Around the 19th century stoneware became very popular because a mold could be made and they could be reproduced over and over. Around the same time it is believed that the metal lid was added to these types of beer glasses to keep the fleas that spread the black plague from getting into your glass! Yuck! Luckily we don't have to deal with the black plague, but German beer steins remain highly collectible beer glasses that will keep the insects out of your suds on a hot July day thanks to their built in lid.
Pilsner Glasses and Pint Glasses The tall pilsner glass is another story. These types of beer glasses are designed for drinking lighter colored beers out of them. Their tall slender design captures the sparking carbonation of the beer while maintaining a frothy head. We sell them as a set of beer glasses, or engraved individually as a gift. Pint glasses come in two main varieties, English and American. The main difference between these two types of glassware are the shape and the size. The English beer glasses have a bump near the top for showcasing the head and are usually 20oz. The American beer glasses for sale are sloped slightly, usually 16oz, and are actually designed to stack, hence their popularity with pubs and restaurants. A great choice for the home bar, these personalized beer glasses don’t take up much precious space.
As you can see there is a lot of history and art behind our personalized beer glasses. So next time you are having a brew, raise a toast to the enterprising folks who loved their suds so much they designed these great beer glasses for us! Cheers!
