Using a beer mug instead of a pint or a pilsner can make a world of difference depending on the type of beer you enjoy. Mugs are ideal for drinking light to medium ales and lagers, but are great for all kinds of amber ales, stouts, and brown ales. Not only can custom beer mugs typically hold more beer than a standard pint or bottle, but holding it by the handle helps keep your beer cold. Having a mug custom made just for you improves your drinking experience even more. Looking for a classic lidded beer stein? We found plenty of modern and traditional steins to suit your needs! Whether you’re looking for a set of custom mugs for your home bar or for a glass with your name on it that no one else will use, you’re in the right place. Our experts gathered the best beer mugs and steins for you to enjoy or give as gifts to the beer lovers in your life.

Originating from the motherland of all beer, Germany, the festival lasts for just over two weeks in the state of Bavaria.
