Historically, leather drinking vessels were lined with the boiled resin of birch / pine trees or brewers pitch. Our shive beakers are lined with epoxy resin to echo this historic precident. Click here for more information within the Internal Lining section of our Facts page.
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.
Capacity approximately half a pint.
