metal drinking vessels...

yes they are retro cool...

and retro hot too...

the issue with metal (steel, alum or pewter) is thermal.

holding an iced cold drink in a non insultated metal vessel is unpleasant.

that is one reason lexan, glass and plastic are appealing...

and why beer cozeys were invented.

aluminum has the added issue of acidic drinks or alkaline cleaning agents...

i do like the occasional grog of tepid beer or rum from my pewter stein,

but a truly functional retro metal cup needs to be insulated for everyday use.

cheers

even the handle on these steins is uncomfortable with cold drinks which ALL get warm too quickly...

how about some nice GLASS or LEXAN beverage holders from ASL..with logos.

Talking

Straight from the bottle. That would qualify as glass right?

Wine glasses

I'm so glad to find this thread. I posted a question about wine glasses on the coffee thread, had I done a better search I'd have found this one for great opinions. This will be helpful info! Thanks too for the kitchen organization thread that a lot of you have posted to as well. With all of your posts on various topics I'm slowly getting the Airstream together.

Personally, I like fine stem glass ware for the first 2 to 3 glasses then I don't care, I can drink it out of an old shoe. Marvin

Just thought I'd send this link to go along with the wine glass subject. This will upset the wine snobs in California!

American Thinker: A Blow to Wine Snobs

"Shaw's California Chardonnay took first place for Best Chardonnay from California. To some in the clubby California wine community, that must seem like a Michelin's Red Guide giving three stars to a roadside hamburger stand.

The Chardonnay received 98 points, a double gold, with accolades of Best of California and Best of Class."

Attached is a picture of the coffee mug and wine glass holder I built for Chummy. It holds four wine glasses and four coffee mugs, all in secure fashion so they will not break but in easy reach.
Good idea. I may do the same. Looks like we both put in the same faucet. I like mine, but sometimes the handle's weight closes it while filling the sink requiring me to open it again (and sometimes again, and etc...).
