Kannenbackerland is an area in Germany known as the original German beer stein producer. Authenticity is important to us, which is why you'll find that many of our steins are handmade in Germany with centuries-old designs that inspire nostalgia for many of our customers.
For the Mantle
Not all Beer Steins are made for drinking, some are made for decorative purposes. The world's largest beer stein can hold more than 30 liters of beer, stands at more than 4 feet in height and weighs more than 35 pounds. While it is impressive, it isn't the easiest Beer Stein to drink from.
It is believed by some that the lid was implemented during the Black Plague to prevent disease from getting into beer. Several of the steins we sell come with traditional pewter lids designed to keep your beer fresh and free of debris. Prost!
Beer steins are often passed down from generation to generation. Families can do this because, for centuries, these ceramic steins have been handmade to last in the Westerwald region in Germany, by some of the world's best potters. The designs on almost all of our steins have antique origins.
