A journey through the history of beer mugs
Beer mugs have a long history in Germany. As early as the 14th century, the need to protect valuable beer from contamination was recognized. This is how the first beer mugs with lids came onto the market, which not only ensured that the beer stayed fresh, but also kept insects and dirt away. Over time, beer mugs developed into real works of art that not only fulfilled their practical function, but also reflected the social status of their owner.
In the 16th and 17th centuries, beer mugs were increasingly made of porcelain, which increased their importance in society. The production of beer mugs required great craftsmanship and was therefore often carried out by masters and master workshops. Beer mugs were not only practical, but also a symbol of wealth and taste.
Why are beer mugs so popular?
Even today, beer mugs still have great significance in German culture. With their diverse designs and materials - from stoneware to glass to porcelain - they are highly valued by collectors and beer lovers alike. The craftsmanship that goes into making the beer mugs shows the German tradition and passion for brewing beer. Beer mugs are also a popular souvenir for tourists who want to take a piece of German culture and history home with them.
In Germany, stoneware beer mugs are the preferred choice as they keep the beer cooler for longer and are sturdy enough for everyday use. In America, beer mugs are often referred to as "steins" to emphasize their origins in Germany and the use of stoneware.
