Who wouldn’t want to hold over half a keg full (8.45 gallons) of delicious imported malty goodness all in one container (for themselves)? Now you can with the World’s Largest Beer Stein. Weighing in at 35 pounds (empty) and over 4 feet tall. Can you imagine drinking from a 4 foot tall stein…how bad ass would that be? I’d say it would make a terrific Father’s Day gift, since it’s coming up, but I think really only Chuck Norris is worthy of this beast of a mug.
The folks over at 1001BeerSteins.com actually have this for sale! Good news too…it was originally priced at $8,037.99 but they’ve discounted it %25 so it’ll only set you back $6,027.99 and that includes free ground shipping.
It’s classified as a traditional German beer stein (as opposed to figural or pewter versions) and is made from stoneware. The scene depicted is the “Flemish Country Wedding” painting by Brueghel. The removable stoneware lid is that of Gambrinus, the German Beer King. The German Beer King? Come on….how does one get that title? He must have been one BAMF.
There is a German verse on it as well that literally translates to “He who can empty this stein is truly a man!” So all you college kids who think your beer pong skills make you a man…you hold nothing to the good sir that can polish this thing off in one sitting . World’s Largest Beer Stein? Maybe….but I think World’s Manliest Drinking Vessel is just as apropos.
