Tankards are essential immersive drinking vessel for a good many larps. The good news is that we’ve found a great tankard.
The video has all the information you need to know about these. The quick version is:
- They are stainless steel and dishwasher proof
- These tankards are double walled and insulated.
- Because they are double walled that means they are well suited to both hot and cold drinks
- The cover is custom and made of leather. It pops off when the tankard needs cleaning.
The Tankard Review Video
A little tankard history
I bought one of these at Curious Pastimes Renewal last year. I have a long history of buying, losing and even disintegrating tankards. I did have a need for a drinking vessel, but my bad track record was holding me back.
Eventually need overcame nervous and I bought one with a nice fleur-de-lys design. It was the last one at Stardust Larpcraft
We went to the bar and it did its job well.
Later that event the heavens opened. It rained and rained. Feeling as if the event was at the wrong end of a dragons urinal.
So we headed for a tent to record a video and have a cuppa. I only had the tankard on me, so I used it and it worked as promised. No lips burning on hot metal and my coffee stayed warm.
We met up with Stardust Larpcraft again. This time at What’s Your Game in Gloucester. Saw the tankards again and this time decided that they would be great as a team tankard.
The Making of our Tankards
This all happened through Facebook Messenger. We’d ask a question. Stardust would answer it. They’d ask for something and we’d answer.
It was all very easy and amiable.
There were no nasty surprises.
Making it easy to recommend both Stardust Larpcraft, and our shiny new tankards.
