Introducing "Join or Die"
The 2021 4th of July glass is here! 🇺🇸
Join or Die is a political cartoon attributed to Benjamin Franklin published by the Pennsylvania Gazette on May 9, 1754. The cartoon appeared with Franklin's article on the "disunited state" of the colonies and was used to bolster his argument in favor of colonial unity.
We traditionally think about the 13 colonies, but in this case, New England's four colonies were represented as one, Delaware was considered part of Pennsylvania, and Georgia wasn't included (the illustration only focused on the colonies that claimed shared identities as Americans).
During the American Revolutionary War, the image represented colonial freedom and became a symbol of unity by the American colonists as well as resistance to Parliament and the Crown.
About The Design
The gold-printed design depicts a snake cut into eighths, with each segment labeled with the initials of one of the American colonies or regions, and included the infamous words JOIN, OR DIE. on the bottom.

This glass is one of the most versatile glasses on the market. Not only does it look and feel good in your hands and, but its fluted mouth provides for a great sensory enhancing drinking experience. It can be used to enjoy any style of beer - from IPAs to boozy barrel-aged stouts to lambics and sours. Note this glass is 17 oz. brimful, meaning it can fit a full 16 oz. tallboy without issues.
Here is a guide I wrote that details the best way for you to properly clean your glassware. Below are some basic guidelines:
- Hand wash - I've put my gold printed glasses through the wash, but I don't recommend it. I suggest hand washing these with soap and water, and then letting them air dry.
