Grumpy Beer Stein from Epcot

The following text and pics come from guest contributor Barbie Minnick. Barbie manages, along with hubby Nick Maglio, the excellent Disney Musing site. Check out this nice Grumpy piece!


Nick and I were moseying around EPCOT wandering in and out of the different pavilions this January, trying to keep warm and take in all the wonderful smells that go along with each one of them. The German Pavilion lures in everyone around with the smell of caramel and sweets, and we were no exception!

As Nick and I walked through the stores, we unexpectedly ran into this absolutely amazing Grumpy stein! He is a limited edition of 2,500 pieces, made in Germany.

On his base it says "I know a little German, Ich kann ein bisschen Deutsch"

The price is steep ($229.95), but I felt this stein was worth the money. It is a lovely, well crafted piece.

A word to the wise though, if you decide to pick one up, please look over it very carefully! As you can see from the first photo, the stein we picked up had a large chip in Grumpy's beard, which we didn't notice at first! Go over your purchase carefully before you buy it. Don't let Grumpy's awesomeness blind you to potential cracks, chips or other problems you might encounter! It's a delicate piece!
