European beer culture is virtually unimaginable without the Tübinger beer mug. Its typically round shape and relatively low height makes it perfect for use in gastronomy and at beer fests. Many traditional breweries in Austria, Germany, and the Czech Republic use the decorative surface of the mug to represent their brands. Commercially, it is available in sizes 0.25 l , 0.3 l and 0.5 l without the decorative surface. Of course, all sizes and variants are marked with the CE measuring line.
Shoe or boot-shaped drinking vessels go back a long way; early proof of this can be seen in the Urnenfeld period at Korneuburg in Lower Austria (Austria), or from the gravesites of the Celtic chieftains of Hessen (Germany). The glass shape is based on real boots that were worn in the military until the 19th century, used for drinking either as a punishment (Mensurstiefel = literally 'duelling boot') or as a test of courage. From there, the custom spread through student fraternities. Due to its complex shape, a Bierstiefel cannot be manufactured by just any glass manufacturer; Oberglas, however, possesses the relevant experience and technology. The Bierstiefel comes in four sizes from the 4 cl spirits glass to the 1 l tankard.
With an unbeatable combination of gently curving body, star-shaped base and spiral features, this stylish carafe enjoys a very high recall value. The product is well received in the hospitality industry thanks to its shape and stability. In the smaller models (0.125 l, 0.2 l and 0.25 l), the Salzburg carafe is popularly used in gastronomy for measuring in mouth-blown glasses. The carafe is available in five different sizes from 0.125 l to 1 l.
Our glass carafe Purity stands out for its sleek and modern appearance. Its cylindrical shape and wide bottle neck make it easy to pour, while the thick base ensures stability. The Purity carafe can be used in a variety of ways, not least as a water carafe (0.75l) or for drinking spritzer juices with a straw (0.25/0.5l).
The Premium beer mug is notable for its minimalist shape and comes in sizes 0.3 l and 0.5 l, with or without texture. The feature that really sets it apart from other mugs on the market, however, is the indentation on the body, which allows you to get a full grip on the handle. On request, the mugs can also be furnished with a CE marking.
The Stölzle wine jug is a traditional sight in wine taverns, traditional restaurants, and at all manner of festive events, particularly in the regions of Austria and southern Germany. Its practical features (easy for both guests and staff to hold, printable, inexpensive, robust body) make this glass a fixture at any successful event.
The ISAR is our best-known beer mug shape, most notably due to the global popularity of Oktoberfests. Oktoberfest organisers, however, opt for our glass not only because of its shape, but also because of its weight. Using IS technology, it is possible to make the glass about 50 % lighter than by using press technology. This mug is also known as the “Augenkanne” in many places. Its flat, round dimples give the body greater stability and a more appealing appearance. ISAR beer mugs are available in four sizes from the 4 cl spirits glass to the 1 l tankard.
A beer mug with a big name indeed, inspired by folklore icon Gambrinus, so-called King of Beer. According to legend, it was Gambrinus who invented beer brewing. Our timeless classic comes in the customary sizes 0.25 l, 0.3 l, 0.4 l and 0.5 l, and is one of few beer mugs to be available in the diminutive 0.125 l model too. The latter is known in Austria as the classic “Pfiff” and is enjoying ever-increasing popularity across the world. To complete the range, we also offer a 4 cl schnapps glass for spirits-lovers.
