Cheers! Take a drink from these authentic 0.5 L beer mugs. Pilsner Urquell was the world's first pale lager. The name pilsner is often used by its copies. Did you know nine out of ten beers produced and consumed in the world are pale lagers based on Pilsner Urquell? The German name, which means 'original source', was adopted as a trademark in 1898. These mugs are authentic Pilsner Urquell half-liters.
