A Small History of Tankards

Tankard originally meant any wooden vessel back in the 13th century. It then eventually came to mean a drinking vessel in the late Middle Ages. A 2000-year-old wooden tankard had been found that could hold 4 pints! Over time more materials were used like pewter, silver, horn, and leather. The wealthier people in the early Renaissance had tankards made of porcelain and pottery. Tankards remained popular in Europe and America for centuries. Currently, they are used for more decorative purposes like Pewter tankards on walls. Although pewter tankards still can be drunk from and safe due to no lead in the metal. In the UK, some pubs serve beer in glass tankards but it’s not as common due to branded pint glasses.

Caring for Your Tankard

Nemesis Now tankards come with a removable stainless-steel insert for ease of cleaning. Recommended to hand wash the insert and use vinegar solution for stubborn stains. The resin exterior is hand-painted so cleaning may cause damage to the paint. If you need to clean the exterior use a soft cloth and warm water whilst being gentle. Avoid using abrasive cleaners and sponges as this could damage the finish. Once clean make sure all parts are fully dry before reassembling. Finally, fill your tankard with beer and relax!
