I recently developed a serious addiction to etsy, an online shop for handmade goods. This morning when I was perusing all the unique items on the site, I thought I’d do a quick search for “beer” and see what came up. I ended up with so many neat things to share that I will have to do several posts. So here is the first, a collection of handmade vessels to hold your beer!

vessel1pottery tumblers from victorvsclay
simple and rustic, perfect for beers on the balcony

vessel2mustache pint glasses from BreadandBadger
this one just makes me smile every time I see it

vessel3glasses made from recycled beer bottles from nickpaul
I’m a big fan of the Rogue bottles, what a neat way to enjoy them permanently

vessel4leather tankard from hardwickleathergoods
definitely a different way to hold your beer

vessel5wooden stein from fairefinery
another unique way to hold you beer and also drop-proof


I must confess, I love shopping and I love things that allow for accessories. Beer is no exception. So this is the first of what I imagine will be many posts about beer accessories…

Here is a roundup of a few versions of stainless steel beer steins from around the web. I liked these steins because they are stylish but not ordinary. Also indestructible! Their clean look would work just as well camping or picnicking as at a classy get-together.
