This beautiful 18 oz sage-colored tankard hand-made by Deneen Pottery, a family-owned business in Saint Paul, Minnesota, will give you a reason to be happy! You can use it for beer, but all other beverages can also be enjoyed from it.

With a delightful design by Ted Schleunderfritz showing Chesterton and Belloc raising their own tankards in a toast, and inscribed with the great GKC quote: “Drink because you are happy, but never because you are miserable.”


Weight 1.8 lbs
Dimensions 4 × 6 × 5 in

    This is so much better in person! The color is fantastic – the weight is just right – the handle is comfortable – & GKC is as cute as can be. I just got one for my stepdad for Christmas – shhhhhh – and then couldn’t help but get one for myself. My advice is to just get two right away – or six – or a dozen.

    Just got this for Christmas. The artwork and sage-green color are beautiful! I looking forward to having a beer in this as I read some Chesterton.

    A dear friend insisted on ordering the tankard and the coffee mug for me at this year’s ACS Conference in Slippery Rock. I received them both about a month ago, and they are spectacular. The artwork is gorgeous, and the pottery of such high quality! I have my morning coffee out of the mug and am happy. I have my evening microbrew out of the tankard, and am even happier.

    One is overcome by a sense of nostalgic warmth from the GK Tankard. Even the most sombre would smirk at the happiness it provides. A jolly well done design!

    Wish I could order several! I have bought a few of the Made in the US A mugs and would love to see a “reissue” for Christmas
