Although most steins are used more in Bavarian part of Germany the clay to produce them comes from the Westerwald region of Germany. This region is renowned for its’ high quality and substantial clay deposits. This is why the remaining manufacturers that still produce authentic German beer steins are located there.
One of these factories is King-Werks which not only produces it’s own line of steins but in January 2011 through agreement with Albert Thewalt began producing TheWalt steins under the name “Thewalt 1893” they are known for production of Souvenir Relief Steins, Crest Steins, Specialty Steins, and Limited Edition Steins.Their factory is located in a small village called Hoehr-Grenzhausen.
If you travel another 2 miles to another village of Hillscheid you will find Zoller & Born which maintains the same high quality standard of King. Detailed relief steins are the specialty of Zoller and Born.
