Pewter—an alloy consisting primarily of tin mixed with antimony, bismuth, copper, and sometimes lead—has been used for centuries, beginning in Ancient Egypt, eventually spreading to Rome and beyond. Until the introduction of porcelain, pewter was the primary tableware. Pewter beer mugs remain a popular item for beer stein collectors all over the world. The material does not rust or tarnish and is highly resistant to damage. Most importantly, the alloy doesn’t impart a metallic taste to its contents, making pewter beer steins the much better option to iron, copper, and even silver.
At My Beer Steins, you’re presented with an extensive collection of German pewter beer steins crafted by some of the greatest artisans in the world. If you have any questions, please feel free to send us an email or give us a call. Happy drinking!
