Thread Name: Folklore: Pewter Tankards
Subject: RE: Folklore: Pewter Tankards
Portable, reasonably unbreakable and, until relatively recently, a legally acceptable measured pint. Bit hard to tell with 'frothy' beers though if you've got the whole pint.

I have a tankard with a lid for Towersey - it keeps the wasps out but is heavy and cost me 12, 15 years ago, but I know there is only one other mug like it in the world. This year I've taken to using a plastic one - it's lighter, still a pint measure and has a jolly skull motif. ASDA's Hallowe'en range... cost me 1.95.
