This limited edition cobalt blue and gray glaze beer stein was made to celebrate the 425th anniversary of the Hofbräuhaus (HB) brewery in Munich, Germany. The front features a large pewter medallion with the HB crown logo and text Hofbräuhaus München Seit (since) 1589. A beer maiden with HB branded mugs frothing over with beer rests on a laurel. Two plaques honor Wilhelm IV Herzog von Bayern (4th Duke of Bavaria), founder of the German purity law (Begruender des bayerischen Reinheitsgebotes) and Wilhelm V Herzog von Bayern (5th Duke of Bavaria), founder of the Hofbräuhaus in Munich (Gruender des Münchner Hofbräuhauses). The left side shows a scene of the Hofbrauhaus beer hall and the right depicts the HB building in Munich both framed by hops and wheat.
Great Steins, for Great Minds
This 425 Year Anniversary Hofbrauhaus HB Brewery Beer Stein depicts the same scene as our more ornate glazed edition. However, with its bold cobalt finish, many people actually find this more modestly priced stein even more appealing.
The universally recognized HB logo is easily recognized on a pewter metal medallion that is inlayed into the stein’s background. This contrast to the overall cobalt sheen combine for a durable mug that is ideal for display and drinking purposes alike.
Celebrating the Hofbrauhaus Legacy
With only 2,014 of these in existence, we here at Germanstiens.com recommend that if you think you might be interested in this particular stein, please place your order as quickly as possible or risk missing out!

While you are browsing around our site, take some time to briefly browse though some our excellent 500 year Purity Law anniversary products. Not only are the aesthetics of this mug top notch, but its design durability, functionality as a high quality beer drinking device and nostalgic appeal turn this stein into a much greater object than simply a decorative mantel piece.

At just under 10.5 inches to the base of the thumb-lift, there is enough volume here for an entire liter of golden, carbonated, beer joy; or about 3 standard bottled beers.
