Benjamin Franklin, inventor of nearly everything, was too busy to make his own beer, but certainly enjoyed partaking of it. So did many of our other founding fathers, including George Washington who brewed his own beer at home. While beer may have its roots in Europe, settlers brought their own recipes, and started one of America's oldest traditions. Our period-accurate beer stein is made from pure copper, and shares the same qualities as some of the best modern American beers - handcrafted in small batches by artisans who take pride in their work. And since copper is a natural insulator, you can sip slowly while your ale stays perfectly chilled. So raise a toast with family and friends and bring America alive as you down your favorite brew. Sure, it's expensive, but who ever said authenticity was cheap?
Our founding fathers may not have agreed on everything, but they certainly agreed on one thing: beer.

The Bronze Period is a name given by archaeologists to that stage in human culture between the later Stone Age and the Iron Age when drinking vessels were often made from an alloy of copper and tin termed bronze,' a metal we were taught how to manufacture by the Phoenicans who settled and traded in Cornwall three hundred and fifty years or more before the Christian era. The Britons were making great progress in their work during the two hundred years before the Roman invasion, their bronze covered wooden tankards being quite works of art. The beer stein was first made about 50 B.C.
