10 Best Beer Mugs
for January 2023

Beer mugs are a staple of every bar, from pubs to sports bars to breweries. But how much do you really know about beer mugs? You may be surprised to learn that there are actually different types of beer mugs, like beer steins, pint glasses, and mugs. Beer mugs are made out of a variety of materials, including ceramic, plastic, glass, stainless steel, and pewter.

Beer mugs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including pint glasses, steins, mugs, and pilsners. Pint glasses are smaller, more rounded mugs that hold 16 ounces. Beer steins are larger, more rounded mugs that hold 32 ounces. Pilsners are similar to steins, but hold 20 ounces. Mugs, meanwhile, are larger and can hold anywhere from 12 ounces to 64 ounces.

Beer mugs can be used to serve beer, wine, spirits, and even coffee. They're also great for serving mixed drinks, such as margaritas or mojitos.

In our testing Lab, we evaluate beer mugs for how well they hold temperature, how easy they are to clean, and whether they're dishwasher safe. We also evaluate their design, including shape, color, and size. Here are the best beer mugs of 2022:
