Benefits of Drinking from a Ceramic Beer Mug
Many beer drinkers do not realize the whole host of benefits that come with drinking from a heavily insulated beer mug. Not only are these mugs visually appealing, but they can dramatically enhance the taste of your favorite German lager, American craft beer, or other beverage of choice.
