Beer steins were originally created around 1525, in what is now Western Germany and Bavaria. These specialty mugs had hinged lids to protect people from drinking beer and other liquids that had been contaminated. However, German beer steins, their lids, hinges and materials were very expensive for that time. This made them worth decorative engravings and artistic accents. The quality of the materials, decorative accents and artistic touches is what has made large West German and Bavarian beer steins so popular and collectible. In the latter half of the 19th century, old West German and Bavarian beer stein makers started to find advantages to using different materials for their large decorative mugs and cups. Using glass, old Bavarian and West German stein makers could produce multiple glass mugs and giant cups at once, as well as easily add unique and decorative accents using acid etchings, glass staining, or multicolored overlays. Glass is also more hygienic than other materials. This is the reason why most restaurants serve their beverages in huge glass mugs, cups and other glassware. It is also why most of the giant beer steins for sale at Germany’s famous Oktoberfest are made from glass.
Today, decorative West German and old Bavarian etched glass beer steins are as popular and collectible as ever. You may not need the lid for health reasons any more, but drinking beer with friends and family out of a giant glass German beer stein makes every beer drinking experience much more fun and memorable. Besides making beer drinking more fun, large glass beer steins for sale, also help make your beer taste better and stay colder longer than other cups and mugs. Decorative German steins, made from other materials are great, but they are not as functional as glass. The glass used to make cups, mugs and other German glassware is thick and not as fragile as other stein making materials. Glass also stays colder longer than other materials. Even though large glass beer steins are extremely decorative and collectible they can still be used like any other huge beer mug or glass cup and are perfect for the freezer. However, unlike giant glass cups for sale, beer steins are specialty mugs that have handles. Holding the large mug handle instead of the cup will prevent your hand from warming the glass stein, keeping your beer that much colder, that much longer.
