Oktoberfest is becoming big business in the UK. We’ve not quite reached the 7.7million litres consumed at the German event in 2013, but with themed events popping up everywhere from Edinburgh to Shoreditch, and with over 50,000 people last year heading to the London events alone, we’re certainly on our way.
As a number of Oktoberfest events are set to turn many UK cities into boozy Bavarian wonderlands over the next two months, why not join in on the festivities and give your customers a traditional German experience? Here at Stephensons, we’ve picked out some perfect products that will help transform any bar into a bier-hall!
Moldau Pint-To-Brim Tankard
This toughened tankard is one of the only pint-to-brim 12-sided glasses available in the UK and will eliminate any chance of wasting your glorious German beer. This glass also features a nucleated bottom to keep the contents effervescent for longer.
Two-Pint Glass Stein
If any expression fits the spirit of Oktoberfest, it’s surely – ‘two pints are better than one’. Give your customers an authentic German glass and reduce bar trips with this durable, traditional stein. You could say… two beer-ds with one stone.
Spielgelau Wine Glasses
Oktoberfest isn’t only beer and schnitzel. Wine fits into the festivities too, with such customary favourites as the sparkling Schlumbeger often served. These glasses come from Spielgelau, a company based in the Bavarian forest since 1521. So, if anyone knows German glassware, it’s surely Spielgelau!
Isar Shot Mug
This quirky item is a miniature tankard repurposed to be a shot glass! It features a detailed dimple design and a sturdy handle, with a perfect serving capacity of just 1.05 oz.
What could be more German than serving shots of Jägermeister in a mini-stein?
Das Boot - Glass Beer Boot
Legend has it that a German general promised his troops could drink beer from his boot if they were victorious in battle. After the triumph, he commissioned a glassmaker to fashion his boot from glass, both fulfilling his promise and avoiding any foot-flavoured beer. Thus, the bierstiefel was born. This iconic glass is inherently tied to German culture and is a unique way to serve pitchers of beer.
