Beer Stein Souvenir, Strasbourg

Beer steins make wonderful take back home souvenirs. The various sizes they are available in are amazing. Made of porcelain or pewter, they are heavy. I saw these at a shop in Strasbourg. The biggest one you see there weighs at least five kilograms. One has to plan out well if it is to be taken back home miles away. The tiny ones are cute and are priced reasonably. I did bring back home one of those small beer stein. It was promptly taken away as gift by my friend saying that I can pick one more in my next trip. I don’t know when that will happen!

Clearly you and your friend have the same taste. Or your friend preferred the taste of what's put inside of it.
