Description

Following repeated customer requests we've added this glass bottom pewter tankard. Legend has it that a glass window was first added to the bottom of pewter tankards to help keep watch for approaching "Press gangs" who might conscript an unwary drinker into the British navy.  The risk of that is less than it once was, but a glass bottom does give you a nice way of seeing the color of your beer!

Like the Classic Pewter Tankard that this is based on, this tankard is from our 'medium grade' range, meaning that it's made from slightly thicker pewter than some of our cups and that gives it a little more strength. 

This tankard is very good for fans of lots of beer styles but particularly for English, Scottish, and IPA style beers, or for mead. 

Note that the capacity of this mug is just over 19 fluid ounces, so it’s a bit more than a standard US pint.
