Tall tales of a day on the river are often accompanied by fine brews. The Angler's Pint glass 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.
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).
Given that fly fishing's roots are firmly planted in Britain, don't you think it appropriate that, after a long day on the river, anglers are rewarded with a proper pint?
This 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*. Beneath is a stunning full-color scientific illustration of a striped bass with both its common and scientific names.
Unlike the trout Angler's Pints, the Striped Bass Angler's Pint features a larger saltwater rod and reed, as well as a fly pattern on the opposite side of the glass.
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. The design of the glass itself is often referred to as the Willybecher and has many attributes that enhance the experience of consuming various hop-centered beverages. 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 just gave these to my husband John for Christmas - he absolutely loves them! And although an outsoorsman and sometime fisherman, he is not a fly fisherman. He loves them so much we are buying more for a good friend! Thank you Karen!
