Today, steins have evolved to being available in a wide range of materials such as glass, silver, pewter, wood, plastic, and other materials for ornamental or practical uses. An abbreviation of the German Steinzeugkrug, a stein is traditionally a stoneware tankard with the feature of a hinged lid. While they may be considered ornamental to most people today, the design of the stein grew out of a feeling of necessity in the sixteenth century.

Review of Radeberger Beer

Posted by Otto on 11/3/2014 to Beer Reviews

Review of Radeberger

The pilsner is a much maligned and misunderstood style of lager. Uninitiated beer snobs turn their noses at the mere sight of a light beer that isn’t crammed full of hops. Or even worse, the style is associated with the American pilsner; known worldwide for being short on flavor but big in marketing efforts. In fact, the American pilsner isn’t worthy to even rinse the glass of a fine Czech or German pilsner.
