Beer Mugs For An Aussie Summer

Summer is upon us yet again. It is the time of sea, sun and surf. It is also the time to sit on your lounge chair and have a cold mug of beer. It doesn’t matter if it is Tooheys, Asahi or Heineken, all that matters is that it is a nice cold beer. I myself love to have a beer during summer. Truth is I also like to drink tea. I am like the Chinese who drink warm drinks even during hot days. I am not sure why but I just like it. I find sometime when I drink cold drinks I get a sore throat so I try to avoid them. Sure I will have a cold glass of coke sometimes, but that is more as a dessert drink than anything else. Mainly I will have tea or just water at room temperature.

All that said there is still nothing like having a cold beer during summer. Especially if you are having a barbecue. The best thing to drink your beer out of is beer mugs. You have got to hand it to German’s on that one. When they drink a beer it is in a nice big beer mug which gives you just enough beer to keep you happy. There is no use drinking it in a small glass which will be gone in a few seconds. You need and nice big beer mug to make sure you get just the right amount of beer. Why muck around when the world is full of beer mugs.

Now I know what you are thinking, beer makes you fat. Whilst I can sympathise that drinking a lot of beer can give you what is commonly known as a “beer gut”, The reality is that it doesn’t need to be that way. Firstly you can drink low carb beer if you are worried about getting a gut. You can also go for light beer which will have a similar effect. The other thing is you can just drink less. I mean drinking responsibly is all the rage these days. So the point is not how much beer you drink but how you drink your beer. I say the best way to drink it is in a nice tall beer mug.

WORLD’S FIRST PAPER BEER BOTTLE

The beer brewer Carlsberg has come up with the worlds first paper beer bottle. The bottle is part of Carlsberg’s “Together Towards Zero” initiative, which is their commitment towards zero carbon emissions. This includes a goal of a 30% reduction in their carbon footprint.

The American brewer has revealed two prototypes for its green fibre bottle, both of which are made from sustainably sourced wood fibres. They are both made in such a way that they are able to hold beer. Obviously being made from paper they need to be able to actually hold the liquid which is where the magic begins. Anyone can make a beer bottle or beer mug out of paper but will it hold? That is the billion dollar question. Traditionally beer mugs and beer bottles are made from glass because it is a good container. Also the beer tastes good consumer out of glass. You can drink beer out of a plastic bottle or plastic beer mug, but it doesn’t taste very good.

 

 

Another interesting development from Carlsberg is that From Spring 2020, cans of their Tennent’s lager will be packaged in cardboard rather than plastic, with plastic rings and shrink-wrap phased out. This will result in 150 tonnes less plastic produced per year. Tennent’s has become the first brewer to join The UK Plastics Pact, which intends to ban single-use plastic used in packaging by 2021.

Whilst companies will try to move away from glass as a material for bottles and mugs, I believe that what they should be working on is getting away from plastic. Plastic tends to be a single use material whereas glass can be used multiple times. Especially in Europe where people pay a deposit for their bottles, they tend to be reused. The same goes with beer mugs. When you drink from one at the pub you take it back, they wash it, and then use it again. With plastic or even paper cups and mugs it is a single use and then into the rubbish bin.

History of the Dimpled Mug

While we enjoy drinking from it, the history of the dimpled mug is rather complicated and vague, yet it still managed to cement its place on the pedestal of fancy-looking beer mugs. Allegedly, the dimpled mug slowly arose to the surface during the end of the Second World War. The grenade-shaped mug tells you more than any other old veteran who is chock full of anecdotes and war stories.

The design of the dimpled mug acquired the known image as a common beer’s mug, a working man’s mug. With its wide dimples, perfectly shaped to refract the light onto the beer, this beer mug makes you better appreciate not just the look of the mug but the enlightened liquid within it.

After the war, this standard beer mug quickly went into absolute decline and disappearance. The modernist alcoholics in the 60s preferred their mugs be with a lighter weight, the beer in it had to be visible and with no light breakages, and sadly, no dimples.

Popular for their durability and secure weight, the soldiers of WWII favored the catastrophe-proof glass, as the thickness and density ensured no breakage and a merry clinking. As for the explanation for the dimple-shaped nature, it was manufactured like that most likely due to the simple fact that the industry saved on glass production, lowering the demand of glass material, so it was not just for esthetics and beauty.

The dimpled mug is the definition of a perfect beer design. The convex mug has a wider top, with walls thick enough to withstand even the mightiest of clinks. The thick handle is also a plus, while the thick walls do their best to hold the low temperatures for a pretty long time out of the freezer.

True beer-drinkers will love the mug’s wide top, as it will be much easier to appreciate the beer’s distinct smell and aroma. It’s a true classic of the beer-drinker’s delight. Of course, not everybody appreciates the dimple’s trait to breaking the light, especially those who want to see their bear clear. Others are more content with it, as they prefer that the dimples offer a specific trait which sustains the light within the beer, giving it a lively, vivid feel and look.

Most importantly, this prominent mug is characteristic and typical to the almighty Oktoberfest. We have all seen it. It’s a staple of the festival itself and the mug is also valued as a collector’s item too!

The Dimple Beer Mug is absolutely fantastic for all kinds of family celebrations, weddings, bars and pubs, and many other events and gatherings, guaranteed to introduce the old ways and feels of a perfect celebration. Everyone will respect the texture, look, and the specific characteristics of the dimpled mug, perfect as a promotional merchandise mug that will catch anyone’s attention, as well as holding their beer.

The Dimple Beer Mug comes in a 285ml size and a large one of 570ml. If you are looking for glassware that you want to send out as gifts, the Dimple Beer Mug is your best bet.
