Look, if no one had told us that this pint glass has a perfect replica of Oregon’s highest peak, Mt. Hood, molded in its base, we probably would have never noticed. But now that we have, we think it’s kind of neat. Made by North Drinkware in Portland, Oregon (where else?), this pint is an American-made, custom blown 16 oz. glass.
Using United States Geological Survey (USGS) data (depicting ridges, canyons, and peak) a 3D model of Mt. Hood is integrated into the mold so your beer cascades around the mountain when you pour it into the glass. The Oregon Pint delivers a connection to the mountains that surround us, and the satisfying experience of drinking a local crafted beer out of a local crafted glass – all made here in Oregon.
We suppose this will be particularly popular to Oregonians, though it has a certain artistic appeal beyond that state’s borders. We can’t imagine that it’s all Portlanders who ordered $160,000 worth of glasses (as of this writing), at $35 a pop. It’s on Kickstarter with the funding goal well in the rearview mirror, so head on over and pre-order your own if that’s your thing.
