Tall tales of a day on the river are often accompanied by fine brews. The Angler's Pint will insure the tallest tales will be told while sipping your favorite beverage from this 21.5 ounce glass featuring a beautiful full-color scientific illustration of a fish by award-winning Maine artist (and angler!) Karen Talbot. The process used for creating these full-color glasses is the highest quality process short of hand-painting each and every glass, and every part of the process occurs in the US.
If you've enjoyed a pint in Britain, you may have noticed a small crown etched near the top of the glass in which your pint was served. The crown stamp indicates the glass is a certified vessel capable of holding 20 imperial fluid ounces (568 ml). A similar certification does not exist in the US, but the standard pint served on this side of the pond is just 16 US fluid ounces (473 ml). The Angler's Pint holds 21.5 ounces (636 ml) and graciously boasts its superiority with a fly rod above both a crown and an American flag.
This limited edition release was created for the North Carolina premiere of the internationally acclaimed environmental documentary, The Memory of Fish. The glasses are co-branded on the back with the name of the event, the date, and the event sponsors: Oskar Blues Brewery and Hunter Subaru. A portion of all sales of these glasses goes to supporting the Dr. Thomas R. Karl Internship Program at The Collider in Asheville, NC. The internship, which was created in honor of Tom Karl upon his retirement as Director of NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information, aims to develop the next generation of climate solution leaders. Numbers are very limited.
The Angler's Pint is a distinctive glass standing 7.25 inches tall with a 3-inch diameter rim. The base is 2.375 inches in diameter. These are heavy, durable glasses featuring a German design that feels comfortable in the hand and looks stylish on the shelf. While Karen prefers to handwash her Angler's Pints and air dry so as not to affect the taste of her chosen beverage, the Angler's Pint is dishwasher safe!
Custom handpainted Angler's Pints are available by contacting Karen at Karen@KarenTalbotArt.com. The cost of custom handpainted glassware starts at $50 per glass.

I have been a purchaser of Angler's pints since the were first introduced and have enjoyed many a great beer in these glasses. The size is perfect and the artwork is very well done. I have seen no sign of fading though I do hand wash them. I added this one and the Blue Fin Tuna to my collection.
Great work Karen.
