What country was the ole’ Beer Stein invented in? That’s not a trick question. Yes, Germany, the home of Octoberfest. As a result of the bubonic plague and the invasions of flies in Europe, Germany established laws to require beverage containers to be covered for sanitary purposes. Ah, and Octoberfest. It should be on everyone’s bucket list…
We recommend an annual Octoberfest event in your Man Cave. Or it can be a neighborhood thing instead of a plain old block party. Otherwise, just have a Toga Party. Yes, Toga! Toga! Toga!…
But back to the ole’ Beer Stein. Did you know that American produces a substantial amount of Beer Steins, but the largest producer of Beer Steins is in Brazil. It makes sense since they have the Carnival do Rio de Janeiro, which is just a big party for six-days with about two million people per day on the streets of Rio. And in case you are interested in going to the parade at the Carnaval…
In contrast, Mardi Gras has about half the number of people per day on the streets of New Orleans. And if you are thinking about going to Mardi Gras…
And just for the record, because Gorillas have opposable thumbs, it would be capable of opening the lid of a Beer Stein.
Just a fun fact to store away in case you are at a big business meeting and you want to break the ice, just say, “Hey, did you know that a Gorilla is capable of drinking out of beer stein.” You are sure to close the deal.
Now that you have the history, albeit brief, and a fun fact relating to the Beer Stein, aka Tankard, let’s get right down to business. You need several beer steins in your Man Cave. It should be a hobby, like collecting baseball cards, or collecting wives as did King Soloman. Yes, he had over 700 wives, all with different names, just to make it tough on him to remember each one. On the other hand, Henry the VIII only had six wives, and upon divorce, he didn’t have to pay alimony. He just cut off their heads.
As you can probably tell, we love Beer Steins. Otherwise, why would we write an article on essentially just Beer Steins. We have a collection of our own. In fact, there are many unique and cool looking Beer Steins or Tankards, it was hard for us to recommend just a few. Instead, we list ten Beer Steins and Tankards, and even mugs that we consider a Beer Stein. Again, these are not ranked in any particular order, and of course, there are plenty of other Beer Steins we did not list in this article that we’re sure are worthy of your Man Cave. Just like our position on televisions, your decision shouldn’t be whether you need a Beer Stein for your Man Cave, but how many Beer Steins you should have in your Man Cave…
Germany Coats of Arms Beer Stein Mug
WHY BUY THIS? Why not have at least one Beer Stein in your Man Cave with the coat of arms of the country that produced the ole’ Beer Stein. It’s ceramic, and holds 20.5 ounces of liquid, uh, preferably beer type liquid. It’s also designed to keep your beer cold as you watch football in your Man Cave.
Ceramic German Beer Stein
WHY BUY THIS? Described as a ceramic tankard with a handle and pewter lid, which holds 21 fluid ounces of any liquid, but again, preferably beer. Hey, and it has a carnival scene with folks dancing in the streets. This is a keeper.
The Red Baron Beer Stein Limited Edition
WHY BUY THIS? You’ve heard of the Red Baron, but you may have not known who he actually was unless you are a WW1 buff. He was known in English as Baron von Richthofen or the Red Baron, who was a fighter pilot with the German Air Force during WW1 and considered the ace-of-aces of the war, being officially credited with around 80 air combat victories. Now that you know who he is, you can drink beer out of a Beer Stein dedicated to him.
Germany Octoberfest Tankard
WHY BUY THIS? Ah, the Octoberfest Tankard. Finally. Described as a “…colorful ceramic beer mug features German historic Cities and medieval eagle emblems, which will take you back to medieval German history.” But you just want to get the feel of Octoberfest in your Man Cave, and unless you ask your wife to dress up in a costume such as this…
…which she’d probably decline, you may have to settle for drinking a Hofbrau Oktoberfestbier out of this Beer Stein, which has a perfect five star rating on Amazon.
Home Made Beer Stein with Lid
WHY BUY THIS? Okay, it’s not all about Germany when it comes to Beer Steins. This is a heavy-duty Beer Stein, made from real, high-quality oak wood, which holds up to 17 ounces of beer.
United States Marine Corps Beer Stein
German Hunting Stanley Viking Tankard
WHY BUY THIS? Okay, we are back to a German-themed Bear Stein. This particular Beer Stein is just cool looking. We mean, take a look at the picture below. Described as a ceramic beer stein that “features a detailed engraved Wild Hunting Life, Hunter and Animals relief. It is not just real beer mug but can be used as a decoration.” But would you really use this as decoration. Well, maybe when you are not drinking beer out of it.
Rustic Wooden Beer Tankard
WHY BUY THIS? This falls into the medieval category. It does not have the top of a typical Beer Stein, but it’s handcrafted, and eco-friendly. What more do you want? Okay, you want an orange leather strap around the bottom and top of the tankard. You got it.
Viking Beer Mug
WHY BUY THIS? This is a Man’s Beer Stein. Okay, they call this a beer mug but we believe it qualifies as a Beer Stein. We mean, just look at the handle. We know, there’s no top like a typical Beer Stein, but this is what Viking’s used to drink beer when they were hanging out in America well before Christopher Columbus apparently discovered it. Okay, we may be a bit off on our history, or maybe not, but you get the point. And the description explains that you should “Treat your guests like medieval kings while watching the football game or serve them a refreshing beer at the pub. Add style to your man cave or home bar with this medieval barrel mug with the carved handle Viking beer mug.” This should be in your Man Cave.
King Tut Beer Stein Tankard
WHY BUY THIS? This is smaller than the other Beer Steins shown here and we recognize that it’s more like a beer mug than a Beer Stein. But it’s King Tut. You know, he was about eight when he became Pharaoh. In contrast, you were probably picking dandelions in the outfield playing little league baseball when you were eight. And he married his half-sister, which was not frowned upon back in his day. If you don’t use this to drink beer, it would make a fine coffee cup to kick start your morning before that marathon football Saturday or Sunday. And if you also have King Tut’s chair in your Man Cave, then you will definitely be King of your household, and who doesn’t want to be a King.
In addition to Beer Steins and Tankards, you should also have one or two Goblets for your Man Cave. You know, for drinking wine with your spouse in the Man Cave as you watch Game of Thrones after putting your kids to bed. Do you really want to drink out of a boring old crystal wine glass? Of course not, rather you need a friggin’ Goblet, or two, and here are a mere three that should get your juices flowing…
Miedeval Double Dragon Wine Goblet
WHY BUY THIS? Did you know that “Dragons symbolize the fire of a love relationship.” Further, “the elegant and romantic design of the loving medieval double dragon, which exudes a retro and romantic atmosphere, is in the sweet moments and your favorite people together using it is drinking red wine good selection.” Yeah, we’re not exactly sure what that means, but you should buy two of them, uh, one for you, and one for your spouse, so you can enjoy a nice 7 ounce glass of red wine in your Man Cave. We guarantee you will get bonus points.
Holy Grail Cup
WHY BUY THIS? Have you seen Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade? Ah Venice…
We’ve seen it about 47 times, which in our opinion, is the best of the four Indiana Jones movies. In case you need a “refresher course” (uh, Fletch) or if you were born after 1985, Indiana, or Junior as he called by his Dad, is in search of his father, who disappeared while looking for the Holy Grail, which is supposed to give eternal life to those who sip from it. In the movie, though, it only offers immortality for those who do not leave the temple where its located. Hey, imagine if you had the opportunity for immortality as long as you never left your Man Cave. We think you need two Holy Grail’s for you Man Cave. Just in case one breaks.
Game of Thrones Goblet
WHY BUY THIS? Who wouldn’t want this? Eight seasons on HBO. Not sure what else we can say other than it had a bevy of beautiful woman (and men) on the show. And this Goblet is “Painstakingly hand-painted” so hopefully nobody hurt themselves making this.
Beer Steins are not just for Octoberfest, though you can have an Octoberfest-themed event in your Man Cave. In October…and, uh, every other month during the year. Or, just drinking beer out of a Beer Stein could be a weekly tradition. Beer Steins can also be displayed on a shelf in your Man Cave, and utilized of course whenever your drinking beer. Beer and Beer Steins, they go together like football, beer, and Beer Steins. So, go collect a few for your Man Cave. And a least one Goblet, preferably the Holy Grail.
