Wedding or Bridal Tankards :

Beer has been part of the wedding celebrations for hundreds of years

both in England and other European countries. It has been spoken of since the 1500s.

Beers were usually brewed for weddings and often by the bridge-groom.

A special beer was even made for the 1761 Royal wedding of

Princess Charlotte of Mecklenburg to the young George III.

Further, the adaptation to lighter beers in the 18th century

is said to have changed the preference in vessels to glassware.
