Backstory:
In 1982, a new restaurant opened in Greenbelt, Maryland. The restaurant was called "Jasper's." It was unlike any restaurant or bar in Northern Prince George's County at the time. Call it a "meet market," "fern bar" or "yuppie hangout," it was THE place to go in the 1980s. It was, cool, hip, fun and jam packed on the weekends. It became my local "Cheers," where everybody knew my name, and the bartenders had my usual drink ready for me by the time I sat down. It was a big part of my life for a long time.

There were many regulars at Jasper's from the very beginning, but the core group became known as the "Fun Bunch" and our place at the bar was called "Trash Corner." The acknowledged "Mayor" of Jasper's and the person who brought us all together was our friend Smitty. Everybody knew Smitty, and Smitty knew everybody.

I acquired this Tuborg glass beer mug at Jasper's sometime in the mid-'80s. The local distributor was having a promotion to introduce Turborg Red to people who had never tried it. With the purchase of a Tuborg Red Draft, you got this mug. I was never much of a beer drinker, but I liked the mug, so I tried it. I've kept the mug all these years as a memento of those times.

History:
From Wikipedia: Tuborg is a Danish brewing company founded in 1873 by Carl Frederik Tietgen. Since 1970 it has been part of Carlsberg. The brewery was founded in Hellerup, a northern suburb of Copenhagen.

"The street 'Tuborgvej' in Copenhagen, Denmark is named after the Tuborg brewery, and is the street where the original brewery was founded. The name Tuborg originally comes from the name Thuesborg ('Thues castle"') which was the name of an inn from the 1690s, situated in the area of the brewery. This name was kept in the form of the local placenames Lille Tuborg and Store Tuborg, which eventually was used for the brewery founded on the location."

Description:
Turborg Glass Beer Mug with the Tuborg logo screen-printed in red (Tuborg Red is the brewery's oldest beer type). The heavy glass mug has a nice weighty feel and an elegant design. It is in like-new condition and has only been used once. It's the perfect addition to any beer glass or beer mug collection. A great holiday gift or stocking stuffer!

2.75 inches diameter, 4.75 inches high; capacity 12 ounces of your favorite beverage.
