Mug (Seidel, Stein)

Coming in all shapes and sizes, mugs are adorned with handles and are thicker which allows imbibers to clink their mugs with more fervor than other glassware.

Easy to drink from and holding plenty of beer, variations of the mug are a Seidel, which is a German Mug, as well as the famous Stein.

A Stein, (which is German for stone,) is a stone mug with a lid on it. Dating back to the Dark Ages, the Stein received a lid to avoid flies from falling into one’s precious brew during the Black Plague.
