Traditional English Style Beer Mug

This type of mug was used in pubs all across England from the 1920's though the 1980s. During this time, bar patrons preferred ales and this was the perfect serving glass. As tastes changed and lagers became more popular, pubs moved away from the dimpled mug in favor of pint glasses. Slowly but surely, nonics, tulips pint and conical pints replaced the dimpled mug almost completely. England almost witnessed the extinction of this mug when the last English factory that produced it closed in 2001. Thankfully, dimpled tankards were also produced in the USA where they never really fell out of fashion (and in other countries in Europe). American bars love the mug because it is thick and durable not prone to breakage.

The design is often compared to a hand grenade and some argue this is what the design is modeled after. This doesn't seem likely though as dimpled mugs (straight rather than rounded bowls) have been popular in Germany (called krugs) for over 100 years (prior to the invention of the hand grenade shaped like the English dimpled mug). In Germany, the dimples (or eyes) serve two purposed, makes griping the beer easier and makes it easy to measure the pour.

Use this mug to serve your favorite English ales or better yet, a traditional cask conditioned real ale. This will allow you to experience what it was like to drink in an English pub 50 years ago.

Mr
These glasses are almost exactly the same as the English originals they replaced. Very good value for money and great for cold summer beverages.

fast and safe delivery
I was searching for replacement mugs for ones which had been accidentally broken. They are the exact replacement for our set. We use these daily for water or iced tea. The delivery was prompt and very well packed for shipping. I appreciate the great service from this company.
