The beer mug is part of Bavarian beer culture and a glass with an almost legendary reputation. You will encounter most beer mugs at the Oktoberfest: skilled waiters sometimes lift more than a dozen of the heavy vessels and carry them through the festival tent, which is bursting at the seams. They nimbly weave their way through the masses of celebrating people and you wonder how they get their heavy load to their destination without any casualties. The price of the beer in the various festival tents is discussed weeks in advance every year, even if it is clear that it will have risen again. Hard-drinking ladies and gentlemen place bets on how quickly you can drink a beer or how many of them you can enjoy before you fall off the bench. Holidaymakers from near and far travel to Theresienwiese just to enjoy a beer once in their life. The classic measure has a capacity of just over one liter and, depending on the brew, size and body weight, you work out around one per mille.
At this point we could tell you a lot more interesting facts about the curious beer vessel, but instead we would like to recommend the beer mug from Höss to you. This reliable mug brings the charm of Oktoberfest into your home and makes enjoying beer a real experience!
