Check out the quick video below we found on How Cast . They did a great job of teaching what beer pairs with its proper glass. Good production value too!
Stein is short for steinzeugkrug, meaning tankard. The traditional steins came about around the 14th century during the times of the bubonic plague. Steins are made with lids on them and were originally done so to keep out the disease carrying flies. A stein can be made out of many things: stone, porcelain, pewter, ceramics, glass and more. Many steins have pictures on them of scenes, occupations, special events, symbols of royalty, family crests, etc. There are some very beautiful steins out there and if you have never checked any out I encourage you to go online and search for them. As a matter of fact, writing this post has educated me more on the fact that there are some serious stein collectors out there.
Check out www.steincollectors.com. There are some gorgeous steins there. I think I might order one of their glass ones for my collection!
The stein has always been one of my personal favorite beer glasses. It goes great with just about any brew and is a versatile piece. A stein makes one of the best beer gift ideas as well...Cheers!
