You think you know a beer stein when you see one? They are more than just cups; "typisch deutsch" with their ornate lids and handles. Expand your idea of what makes a beer stein at our exhibit "Once Upon A Stein... Beer Steins and the Stories They Tell". The Opening Reception for the exhibition is Friday, September 20th located in our Scharpenberg Gallery. Bring a fellow beer lover to the Haus and examine highlights from the DANK Haus stein collection. Shown in all shapes and sizes, these cups are sure to spark conversations about health, gender, work, leisure, and more. After you view the exhibit, head upstairs for a beer and a pretzel at our Stammtisch Open Haus where the stein excitement continues. Enter your personal stein into our first ever "Stein Contest" and have a chance to win a prize! Categories include: Most Unusual, Biggest and Prettiest Steins. This is a chance to show us your favorite German stein and tell us the story behind it. Free Parking is located at 5/3 Bank at the intersection of Western and Gunnison.
