I've been invited to take part in a craft beer and beer stein competition that opens this Saturday in Washington DC. It's judged by Bill DeBruin, editor of DCBeer.com and Kathy Woodrell from the Library of Congress.
It's partner black clay cup has 3 teeth inside. (Again unfired and unglazed.)
These porcelain companion drinking cups, Come Drink In The Woods With Me, are just that, made for sharing a drink in the woods.
And my two ancient drinking horns are bisque-fired, hand-dug clay from the hills above Belfast Lough. Carved with a scallop shell, they must be soaked in ice-cold water to make them sing. After 20 mins, they'll have sung you the song of the ancient earth, then they can be filled with craft beer and caroused.
But beware: Surgeon General's warning, drinking from my ancient vessels, can fill you with a deep inner urge to take to a boat bare breasted and travel to damp lands!
Here's all the details you need for the show.
