Leather Shive Beaker



If you would like your drinking vessel personalised, we can either Carve or Engrave it for you.

Please note we charge £1 per letter.

Product Description

The leather beaker is mounted on an Ale Cask shive. The keystone and the shive are the two points where a cask is broached. This simple design is reminiscent of a Saxon Beaker except, perhaps, for our addition of the shive.

Leather Shive Beakers

Historically, leather tankards were lined with either boiled Resin of the birch tree, Brewer’s Pitch, or Beeswax. Our full grain leather drinking vessels are lined with an epoxy resin to echo the historic use of resin whilst having the visual appearance of Brewer’s pitch. The resin we use is fully certified for use in both the food and alcohol industries.

Our beer tankards and shive beakers are handmade from natural materials which can never be consistent in colour. Whilst every endeavour is made to control colour consistency, each item is offered as an individual piece. However, it will always be the actual colour ordered.

If you would prefer a personalised beer tankard, jack, or shive beaker please do use the “Add Personalisation” option above.  More information regarding personalisation can be found here.
