Nerdtastic toasting tankards for beer lovers #Stuff we love#beer#geeky#role playing games#toasting#viking#world of warcraft August 17 2011 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin Gayle and Aaron gave their wedding party World of Warcraft tankards. I put together a roundup of toasting flutes that are all kinds of awesome, and almost immediately I got requests in the comments for "nerdtastic tankards" for the beer-lovers in the house. Oh boy, you came to the right Offbeat Empire editor for THAT request. Here we go! Let's start this baby off with the very first tankards I ever encountered at a wedding — the World of Warcraft Tankard O'Terror. I love this Viking horn tankard from Alchemy of England. These may not be super nerdy (unless you engrave it with something cool), but the tall glass tankard makes a smooth transition from champagne toasting flute to beer drinker. Here's one for you steampunk lovers out there. It's got a glass bottom, copper lid, and awesome brass accents. The people who brought you my favorite dragon toasting flutes also make amazing beer steins. My favorite is this octopus guy here. Here's a set of four, for you to share with your best man and maid of honor, perhaps? Or just keep the extra two for when company comes over. For the goth crowd, or my Halloween brides — how much do you love this skull tankard? Here's a tankard for a Viking goddess, with the Norse goddess Freya as the handle. I love this Celtic feasting tankard, made of pewter and ringed with engraved zoomorphic designs. The body of this tankard is finished with a pewter Bavarian crest badge and a flat pewter lid. It's also engravable, so it's perfect to make it all speshul with your wedding date and name and such. This is a great one for the people in your wedding party, as you can switch out the engravable plates to suit your needs. I also really like the simplicity of this guy.

Each tankard is deep-etched with iconic artwork featuring one of the most popular Middle-earth taverns, like The Green Dragon, The Prancing Pony, The Floating Log, or The Golden Perch. Any more nerdtastic tankard leads out there in beer-loving bride land? Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here. Edited text* Enter your suggested copyedit here.

Show/Hide comments [ 10 ] YOU ROCK! Thank you for this roundup, and for being good on your word. My partner and I are geeking out over these. I love the octopus tankard, though it's hard not to keep eyeing the Tankard o'Terror b/c we're both WoW heads. 🙂 1 agrees Reply They make amazing wedding accessories! check em out! Reply Octopus + (belgian) beer = a good wedding! We love beer and scuba diving, so these might just make an appearance! Wait….we don't love beer WHILE diving…..just to make that clear… 1 agrees Reply They hold close to 20 ounces! And its a family business that makes them. I work for them at the Ren Fest in MN and I've got a few of their steins and cups. 1 agrees Reply Oh how I love the Viking Goddess tankard and the Celtic Feasting tankard!! Makes me want tankards instead of flutes for my pirate/renaissance wedding!!! Reply Now how to politely encourage my FH to get me one of these as a wedding gift? 🙂 Reply I bought one of the Taverncraft Warhammer tankards for FH – the Epic Ravenhost one, which they are now sold out of. (check any local retailers that might have some left, mine is actually coming from a local gaming shop) I myself am going to get a Hufflepuff tankard from the Universal Studios Wizarding World of Harry Potter online store. Because i'm awesome like that. i cannot WAIT until they arrive and we have a "test run" with them ;D Reply I still remember bonding with my dad over a pewter tankard of beer when I was about 5 (no, I wasn't drinking the beer) while he explained in great detail about the glass bottoms of tankards and pressgangs and so forth! I love my dad, and now I want to buy tankards! Reply oh nice! We will need to pick some up for our homebrew wedding. Reply I was woundering where to get the LOTR glass ware? I've been looking for some really awsome glassed to serve my homebrew in that don't have someone else's beer on it and these are DEFFINATELY it. 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
