Stein of the Day

crapstein I don’t recall how this half-liter lidded stein came into my possession.

I do know, however, that I didn’t buy it. I would never buy a cliche stein like this. Apparently the maker isn’t proud of it either because there’s no maker’s mark on the bottom.

Judging from the cheap graphics, I’d say this “gift” or “souvenir” stein has never been in Germany and came from somewhere in the Third World, most likely China.

It has no connection with history or the brewing industry or any other link that makes it even remotely interesting. I keep it around as a reminder of what a stein isn’t.
