Cheers From Jacob Bromwell: Made in USA

For a limited time you can order the handcrafted Ben Franklin Beer Stein from Jacob Bromwell and save 50%. Normally $299, the stein will be priced at $150 through September 30.

Disclosure: We’ll get a small commission if you buy through the links in this post: Please do!The beer stein is made from pure copper with a specially applied hot tin interior. The Stein is hand made by artisans in Vermont and is period correct (Ben would approve).The stein holds 32 ozs of your favorite beverage. Not only does the copper finish look spectacular but it’s an excellent natural insulator so you will get to enjoy that cold beverage for a long time.If a cold beer just won’t do it for you then there is always the Bluegrass Mint Julep Tumbler. Also made from pure copper this tumbler will naturally develop a patina unless you are willing to put a little elbow grease into it and polish it back to its original luster.Finally, there is the classic Martini Glass. I wish I’d had this glass the one time I was young and goofy enough to actually order a martini “shaken, not stirred.”

Enjoy.

Hand Blown Drinkware: Made in USA

I don’t know about you, but sometimes it seems like my enjoyment of a drink can be enhanced by the glass I choose to drink from. I  will typically go for the glass with a little bit of heft to it; something sturdy. I also appreciate unusual drinkware, so when I saw these glasses from the New Orleans-based artist and glass-blower Ben Dombey of Glassblower Ben, I knew I wanted to share them with you.The slanted whiskey glass

Ben started out trying to make the perfect whiskey glass after a trip to Scotland. Each glass is custom-blown with lung power and is 100% made in America. An appealing feature of his designs is that you can get them stamped on the bottom with custom text or an image. So, while you sip your favorite beverage, there is a little something special to catch your eye as the glass empties. Unlike etching, this stamp is never going away so choose your words wisely. Having just made my first-ever purchase of mead at a placw called Melovino Meadery, I like the Honeycomb stamped glass. Okay, so maybe you don’t want to see this at the bottom of your glass, but isn’t it cool?The mixing glass pitcher is both elegant and beautiful.The Classic Large Dombey Glass looks like something I’d like to sip from in front of the fire.

Whatever you choose, enjoy your favorite beverage responsibly.
