The stein is topped with a richly ornamented 100% lead free pewter lid. The lid is attached by hand and features a very sturdy stem and hinge mechanism which won’t fall apart after a few uses.

You really should watch out for those cheap Chinese knock offs with machine attached lids. You can easy identify them by a seam going through the hinge and stem. They are typically produced from very thin material and you won’t get much enjoyment out of them. 

This authentic German beer stein is the absolute must have for any beer enthusiast. 

If you drink your beer out of this beer stein it will just taste so much better than it ever did before.

But even better, if you put this stein into a freezer before use, it will keep your beer very cool for a long time. It’s really nice for the hot summer month and the outdoor party.

Instead of drinking out of the beer stein you can also use it just as a collectible. Since this beer mug is an authentic German product produced by King-Werks, one of the only remaining beer stein factories it can be a valuable addition to your collection.

If you decide to give this beer stein as a gift for a special occasion or you want to make your wedding special and share the experience of this German beer stein with all of your groomsmen. It will guaranteed be one of the best gifts you ever gave
