Why Buy Custom Beer Mugs?

When you are looking for a promotional item that will keep your clients coming back for more, look no further than personalized beer mugs.

After all, promotional drinkware is one of the most popular categories of promotional products, and customized beer glasses are far more memorable than other types of drinkware, such as promotional coffee mugs or custom water bottles.

If you’re a bar or restaurant owner, custom beer mugs would make for a great giveaway as part of a pint night or happy hour event. Planning your nuptials? Promotional beer mugs are great as wedding favors! If you have a corporate appearance scheduled for an upcoming outdoor festival, custom beer mugs are a giveaway item that will stand out above other promotional items like keychains or lanyards. Have an employee appreciation dinner coming up? A custom beer stein is guaranteed to make a splash with your staff!

How to Buy Custom Beer Mugs

As always, there are certain things to remember when ordering custom promotional products, such as personalized beer mugs and steins, namely your intended audience, the size of the mug, the material of the product, its durability, and the imprint method that will be used.


When buying custom beer glasses, the main thing to bear in mind is your intended audience. Not everyone will react the same to receiving a promotional beer mug, so only order them if you are certain your target market will appreciate such a giveaway item. The demographic most appreciative of such an item would most likely be males between 18-34, so if your target market is outside of that realm, then you may want to think about another promotional product.


We offer custom beer steins both big and small, ranging in size from 9 ounces to 25 ounces, so you are bound to find a stein that fits right into your marketing budget. Most U.S. domestic beers come in 12-ounce bottles, meaning that the smaller glasses may not be the best choice if you anticipate your audience using the glasses for beer.


We offer beer mugs made of plastic or glass. While plastic is cheaper, glass has a higher perceived value, meaning that glass mugs will resonate more strongly with the recipient than their plastic counterparts. That said, glass mugs may not always be the best choice, depending on where you plan to run the promotion. For instance, if you are thinking of handing out your customized beer mugs at an outdoor event, you may want to go with a plastic custom beer mug since recipients may not have a place to stow a fragile item such as a glass beer stein.


Another important thing to bear in mind is the durability of the product you are buying. Most of the steins available through InkHead are handwash-only, but we do have a few custom beer mugs that are dishwasher safe. Be sure to use the Durability filter on the left-hand side of the screen to discern more easily which items are dishwasher-safe and which ones are not.

Imprint Method

While most of the beer mugs available through InkHead are imprinted via silk screen, we do offer some beer mugs that can take a full-color imprint through four-color processing. Be sure to check the product description or contact one of our Promotions Specialists to determine what imprint methods are available for the item that you have selected.
