German Beer Steins

I was at a friends house some time back and noticed that he had a very substantial beer stein collection displayed above his cabinets in his TV room.

Back in 1979 my wife and I went on an extended six week tour of Europe, beginning at a friends house in England and stopping in Scotland, Ireland, Spain, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Greece and then home. For some reason I decided to collect a beer mug from each of the countries we visited. When we got home we proudly displayed them, but over the years, they got put aside and when I retired they ended up in a box in the garage. I really liked the steins, but we had no place to put them.

I decided this year to give them to my friend, noticing that he still had space left in his display area. They had us over for a pre-Christmas dinner and we presented the box after dinner. It was obvious that my friend was very appreciative of my gift, and it warmed my heart to see his obvious enjoyment.
