Franconian beer mug porcelain
Enjoying beer the Franconian way
Franconian beer mugs are traditionally made of a cooling material. If not thick-walled glass or stoneware, the drinking vessels are often made of porcelain. Our Maßkrug made of hard porcelain has been coming from Lindner Porzellan in Küps for years. The company was founded in the 1930s on the Franconian Porcelain Route. Today, the porcelain makers draw from a pool of more than 30,000 molds, including the template for this beer mug with its typical thickenings and decorations. Thanks to the wide handle, it still fits comfortably in the hand even when full. Of course, an original Franconian Kellerbier (unsparkled) tastes particularly good in it.
Lindner. What lasts is porcelain
The productivity of the Lindner porcelain factory in Küps, Upper Franconia, is remarkable: there is probably nothing that it has not already formed from porcelain. A glance around the Lindner halls immediately confirms this assumption. Since the company was founded in the late 1920s, all porcelain molds have been carefully stored there. The inventory has grown to over 30,000 porcelain molds. Many of them already have collector's value; some are in traditional design, others are timelessly modern, and all can be used again at any time if the customer wishes. Lindner is not impressed or even limited by categories. From thimbles and piggy banks to coffee and table service to bathroom accessories, everything imaginable can be found in the assortment - and is supplemented annually by novelties.
This extensive product range has not changed Lindner's high quality standards. Where other manufacturers rely on automated processes in favor of high volumes, Lindner continues to build on traditional craftsmanship, inherent in the experience and know-how of generations. Instead of shortening or even combining the firing processes, the raw mass of kaolin, feldspar and quartz is given the time it needs to become high-quality porcelain in around 100 working steps. The first firing alone at 900 to 1,000 °C takes a good 20 hours. After the body has been glazed, it is fired a second time at 1,400 °C, again for several hours. Only then does a "white gold" come out of the kiln that actually deserves this name. Anyone who treats and stores it as carefully as Lindner does his work forms will enjoy it for a lifetime.
