Field Test: Avex ‘Brew’ Stainless-Steel Pint Glass

Tough and durable, the Avex Brew Pint Glass is everything I didn’t realize I wanted in a do-all outdoors cup.

I’ve always preferred to drink out of glass pints, so the stainless-steel option was a solution for a problem I didn’t think existed. But over this summer, I’ve had the opportunity to use a few stainless pints, including one from Avex
