Calamity World Beer Stein

$ 49.00

Planet Earth, where calamities have been a tradition since the big bang.

Muddled through another calamitous day? You deserve a beer...in a majestic stein.
The world’s best beer steins are decorated with pompous coats of arms that suggest regal connections and respect for proud, timeless traditions. But this stein is embellished with our own Calamity World coat of arms.

Fine porcelain stein holds 20 ounces (0.5 liter). Food safe, microwave safe, and dishwasher safe. Designed by Don Moyer. Decorated on both sides with glorious, ersatz heraldic junk in a Euro-centric blue that reminds one of the summer sky reflected in the forest pools of Finlandia. In-glaze porcelain produced and decorated by skilled craftspeople in the Czech Republic—a place where they know a few things about beer and steins. (In-glaze porcelain is fired at extra-high temperatures to allow the image to melt slightly into the surface. Like the good stuff you see in museums.)

The Calamity World coat of arms is also available on hoodies, and unisex and ladies t-shirts.

Love my mug

Calamity ware is a love/hate thing in my house. I love the zany designs my wife hates them. She opened the box that came yesterday and our daughter instagrammed the unboxing. Not going to post that. I on the other hand love the mug and have used it for many things already except beer. That’s tonight’s treat. Don’s creativity and imagination are literally baked into these steins and if you enjoy it, you’ll add this to your collection, even if they seem to mysteriously disappear up to the back of the top shelf.

Beer Stein for Wooden Utensils

Yay! My Calamityware Beer Stein arrived! It is gorgeous. I don't drink alcohol. I do need something to hold the wooden utensils which have been taking up drawer space. The Beer Stein looked perfect for that job. And it sits next to the Calamityware Cookie Jar, so the dragons on granola guard duty can sip their favorite beverages when I am not looking.

Adorable Beer Stein

I'm not sure you want a beer stein to be called 'adorable' but this truly is. It's an excellent size - not too huge as many steins are - and feels good in the hand. We've got and daily use many of Don's porcelain products: dinner plates (all of them), smaller plates, bowls, platters. It's nice to sit down to refreshingly amusing decoration every meal. Helps to keep things light in these dark times. The whole family loves them. The guests are always amused. The stein is a nice accompaniment.

This Stein Makes You Magic

It’s true! Drinking Guinness from this stein enhanced my moderate magical powers. I’m pretty certain it wasn’t just the pint of Guinness that made me feel more powerful than usual. I feel confident that the combination of these important icons: rampant dragons, a bat, a snack and a doohickey caused this surge of magic. Try it and report here.

My favorite cup!

This beer stein is my new favorite cup! The design is so fun, and I love the large size and bigger handle. It’s perfect for a cup of hot tea on the porch after work.

SCORE!

Perfect gift for the highly intelligent and absurd, beer drinking hockey fan. They are hard to satisfy with gifts (or fists), but this one was a hat trick !

Approved!

My husband heartily approved his stein. Such a noble vessel. Everything is better with this around.

It's a Calamity!

Amazing! I think this design is my favorite thus far. This is the perfect mug to hold my liquids and snacks. It's hard not to gift this to EVERYONE.

I love this stein

...although I treat it as a mug, a general "hold my beer/tea/water/coffee/whatever I'm drinking." It's sturdy and beautiful and delightfully subversive.
