Most of the beer mugs I've discussed so far have maybe been a little bit tacky or have had some sort novelty appeal to them. I'm referring mostly to the talking beer mugs of course! There's nothing wrong with these but if you're looking for something with a little more class how about engraved glass beer mugs?
Firstly, it's made of glass so none of this cheap plastic rubbish. It's much heavier and sturdier than traditional beer mugs and I've also heard a few people that the beer actually tastes better out of one of these mugs. I'm not sure if I believe that a beers a beer to me! I guess maybe there's something about the feeling of a glass beer mug that makes the experience a little more enjoyable than drinking from a plastic beer mug or beer stein. As with other types of beer engraved glass beer mugs come in all shapes in sizes. My favorite being the 1 liter super beer mug! Wow, but don't be having too many of those. Some of them are works of art I have to say. You can really appreciate the craftsmanship that has gone in to making these beautiful glass mugs. This can be reflected in the price so you can expect to pay a little more for a glass beer mug or stein. Not as much as those rare beer steins which I'll cover in a later post but certainly more than you would for some tacky plastic offering.
So lets get on to the engraved part of these mugs. What can you get engraved on the mug? Pretty much anything you want. This includes monograms or more complex pictures or company logos. I've seen quite a few sites online offering these as gifts for the professional in their Barware section. I can see why they are marketed like this as they can be quite classy gifts for professionals out there. There always a great way for companies to brand an item and either give them away as promotional items or sell them to customers who are fans of the brand. This is common with companies such as Budweiser or Coors. Engraved beer glasses can make quite the classy gift for that special someone in your life too. Perhaps for a birthday gift or Christmas gift.
As I mentioned earlier, the quality of engraving is generally quite high with the print being 600dpi or more. Make sure you check this out before you order any online whoever. You're looking for a minimum of 600dpi on your print before it's laser etched on to the glass. The last thing you want is your engraved beer mug coming in the post only to find out it's not the quality you expected!
If novelty beer mugs aren't your thing them why not try an engraved beer glass with your choice of slogan or logo on the side of the beautiful mug. It can also be used as a wonderful marketing tool for your company to promote your web site or whatever products you sell online.
