Details: Design of the stein is "traditional" by Wurstfest stein standards, featuring a happy, lederhosen-clad figure with beer stein; a beer barrel; and several musical motifs. The lid, designed especially to our specifications by Thewalt in Germany, features a bust thumblift and a special pewter lid inset. The inset depicts a man with a stein of beer and a pipe, above which is a scroll of text with the word, "Gemuetlichkeit". The German word Gemuetlichkeit, closely associated with Wurstfest, loosely translates to "good fellowship".
