Recommend point of tin tumbler, beer cup, and beer glass

  1. Tin makes beer delicious

    Tin has been known that it can purify water. When you pour beer to the tin tumbler, the taste of beer turns to mellow. In addition to this, tin tumbler and pilsner glass have uneven surface inside, the tumbler or glass can make creamier beer foam than the beer glass made of glass.
    Please compare with the taste of beer with tin glass and glass-made glass.

  2. Cools quickly, and keep cold

    Tin has high thermal conductivity than any other metal material, or glass, or porcelain. Therefore, tin tumbler is good for cold drink like beer or highball, also for hot drink like hot sake.

    At first sight, you may not believe that such a thin cup can really keep cold. In fact, thick beer cup cannot keep warm so much. When you pour cold drink into thick beer tumbler, the difference of temperature between cup and drink occurs. When the difference happens, the temperature of the glass wants to be equal to that of the beer. Then, the glass deprives the cold of drink.
    Therefore, thin beer glass or tumbler can keep cold longer than thick cup.

  3. 100% tin harmless for human body

    Tin has high antibacterial function, and hard to cause metal allergy. So people have used tin as some utensils since 1500 B.C.
    Tin is harmless to human body and less metal peculiar smell. Thus, tin tableware does not interrupt the taste and aroma of drink.

  4. Easy care

    Tin is acid-resistant metal. So you do not have to worry about oxidation into black like silver. You can handle tin tableware just like other usual tableware.

How soft tin is?

If you have never touched tin products, you may be surprised of the softness. Tin is soft though it is a metal. Therefore, this beer cup made of 100% tin can be changed its form easily.
Regarding to the softness, tin beer cup is soft even a small child can bend it easily. I am ill-mannered but cannot stop bending the rim of tin beer cup while I drink. Unique texture of bending metal attracts me.

Different form of circle rim of beer cups from Nousaku

Since tin is such a soft metal, the rim of the tin cup is not always a perfect circle. The rim may be a little bit warped when it is delivered. It is not an inferior goods, but due to the feature of tin. Please bend the tin beer cup to make your favorite form.
(But please be careful of too strong power. If you bend too much, tin beer cups may be cracked or broken.)
