Grumpy Stein at EPCOT's Germany Pavilion

By Barbie

Nick and I were moseying around Epcot wandering in and out of the different pavilions this January, trying to keep warm and take in all the wonderful smells that go along with each one of them. The German Pavilion lures in everyone around with the smell of caramel and sweets, and we were no exception!

As Nick and I were walking through the stores we unexpectedly ran into this absolutely amazing Grumpy stein! He is a limited edition of 2,500 pieces, made in Germany.

On his base it says "I know a little German, Ich kann ein bisschen Deutsch"

The price is steep, but I felt this stein was worth the money. It is a lovely, well crafted piece. A word to the wise though, if you decide to pick one up, please go over it very carefully! As you can see from the first photo, the stein we picked up had a large chip in Grumpy's beard, which we didn't notice at first! Go over your purchase carefully before you buy it. Don't let Grumpy's awesomeness blind you to potential cracks, chips or other problems you might encounter! It's a delicate piece!


  1. So you did buy one? With or without the crack? I saw them when I visited last but didn't realize the price was so high!

    1. We did not, due to fear of it breaking in transport.
