When you have a Grichel, you don't need a mug!

I totally missed these when I was in their shop... Must have.

My daughter and I each have a tin lined copper mug that we wear on our belts.  Like the pewter, they stay nice and COLD!  We also have a couple of pewter goblets we carried before we found the mugs, but they are heavier, and less easily carried, so they tend to stay home now.

Leather mug. Beeswax outside, brewer's pitch inside.

Wild Bill's Soda stainless steel mug. Yep. It even has a bucking bronco on the side. It's huge, light and makes an awesome drum.

The Duchess and I use HUGE silver goblets.  They generate a good bit of comment.

I used to drink from a tin cup I covered in knotwork (square knotwork, if you know what that it).  But I got tired of the steel taste.  So, I switched to a pewter mug that I again covered in knotwork.  The mug used to have a crest on it from some intermural hockey club somewhere in New England; I filed and sanded that off so it is now a blank crest under the knotwork.  It is a bit heavier than the tin cup, yes.  The handle gets MUCH hotter from coffee!  I hold it by the knotwork in those cases.  I also have a cord tied to the handle, that I also tie to the wrist of my drinking hand, so I don't leave my cup anywhere!

Leather mug. Beeswax outside, brewer's pitch inside.
Bob, my son made a jack for himself.  The inside is coated with a mix of brewers pitch and beeswax.  He learned of this combo from some of his leatherworking community.  He melted them both together and applied them while still liquid.  The coating isn't nearly as brittle as beeswax alone, and doesn't smell nearly as fragrant as brewer's pitch alone.

I have a mug and straw from Wondrous Works in Wood. It's some sort of dark wood with an almost purplish tone. I cracked it (fell backwards into a tree, long story) and they fixed it good as new in five days. Love them, love it.

These!



The tankard is a hand made copy of a 16th C one, and holds an imperial half pint (10fl oz).  I've had it for many years, and it has occasionally been dropped, so is a might bent in places!  Mind you, it's so solid it chipped a paving block and suffered no damage on one occasion!  It's my Go To beer and cider mug for things like the Rochester Sweeps festival and my LARP events.

The goblet holds about 5fl oz and is perfect for things like mead.

The tankard often gets attached to my belt if i'm out and about, with a lovely leather buckled strap made for me by a LARP leaher worker, but the goblet stays put in camp!  I also have a nice fine lipped pair of stoneware goblets that we use as wine cups.  They too stay in camp.  And we have the 1pint stoneware mugs that are used for tea, coffee, and water.  They are made by a potter specializing in hand thrown repro medieval pottery.  I don't as yet have pictures of them.  The joyful thing about being attached to a group that runs an in character pub is that we get to use these lovely things all the time in camp!
