What is a Tankard?
Often crafted in silver the tankard is a lidded drinking vessel that would often be the vessel of choice for gentlemen to drink their beer.
There is much speculation as to why the tankard was lidded, many historians believe that many establishments that served beer would not have had very secure roofs and the lid would prevent debris, insects and dirt from falling into their beer.
