- Pattern: Paul Revere’s Ride
- Made in Brazil
- Not Vintage: 1991
- Details: This is a very nicely detailed beer stein. It is part of a collection from Miller Brewing Company, this is the first in the series and titled: “Paul Revere’s Ride”. There is so much information and great detail that we’re going to ask you please review the pictures, as we cannot capture all of this here. The dates inscribed on the front are 1855 and 1991 alongside the Miller High Life logo. These are individually numbered steins, this one is number: 20314. The bottom reads: “Birth of a Nation, Licensed Miller Product, Made in Brazil for CUI, Inc., First in a Series”. It still retains it’s original bar code sales label so perhaps it has never been used, it certainly loos unused. This mug is a great addition to an existing collection, or the perfect father’s day gift for a beer drinker or someone who loves American history, or a patriotic items collector. Great addition for a bar or man cave decor.

Interesting facts about Paul Revere:
- He was a silversmith by trade, but sometimes worked as a dentist
- The poem about his ride is incorrect, he did not ride alone, two other men, William Dawes and Samuel Prescott, rode alongside him.
- He never shouted “The British are coming!”
- He had a backup plan in case none of the three riders made it to their destination. Robert Newman was to set lanterns in the steeple of the Old North Church to alert the colonists in Charleston. He would put one lantern if the British were coming by land and two if they were coming by sea. Now you know where the famous phrase “one if by land, two if by sea”, came from.
- After the revolution, he opened a foundry which is still in business today: Revere Copper Products.
