The WOLF STREET Beer Mugs Are Here

Dear Friends and Readers:

Still, in this chaotic world there are some things that are just for fun, including the WOLF STREET beer mug. It has arrived. “Nothing Goes to Heck in a Straight Line,” it says on one side of the wrap-around design, with a funny wolf – that would be me – doing the talking on the other side. Pour in some liquidity, such as a “Repo IPA” or as has been suggested in the comments, a “QE Lite,” and you’re ready to relax with a laugh at my expense:

The art is by artist, illustrator, author, and long-time commenter Kitten Lopez. Long-time reader and commenter “Ripp” and the company he works for got the mugs produced. The mugs are made in the USA, and the color printing (lead-free and cadmium-free organic polymers) was also done in the USA.

You can get a mug in two ways:

  1. Buy it for $25, with free shipping in the US, from Ripp’s company. There have been reports of a discount if you buy more than one with the same order. Ripp ships the mugs to other countries, but will add shipping charges. Check out the pictures of the mug, including the funny wolf and Wolf with mug, and order at the WOLF STREET STORE.
  2. As a thank-you gift when you donate $100 or more to WOLF STREET. Now that I have a few of these mugs at my global media mogul empire headquarters, I will personally send you a mug for any donation of $100 or more, as long as your “ship-to” address is in the US, and as long as my limited supply lasts. Many of you have already donated to support WOLF STREET. I appreciate your support immensely. This site depends on you. Here is how to donate.

    The rumors are true. We are offering a discount if you order more than one.

    Orders that are placed by 3:00 PM (MST because here in Arizona we don’t believe in that silly daylight savings stuff) should ship out same day Monday-Friday.

    If you need any help or have any questions about ordering, please use the Contact Us link at the bottom of the store page.

    There should be a NIRP mug option.

    A mug with a small hole at the bottom, allowing less and less beer “saved” over time in a mug never touched.

    “Why would anyone even use such a mug?”

    Because the next mug might have an even bigger hole…

      Nice try. Now do it with ‘Hedonic Quality Adjustment’.

      ‘Hedonistic’ might work better, so try that too.

      That is pretty funny. I am vaguely reminded of the “Klein bottle” mugs:, which (from a purely mathematical perspective) have “no volume” … but that is still better then a negative yielding mug, which, in turn as you have suggested, is still better then an even more negatively yielding mug.

    It can also double as a shot glass, depending on how the markets are doing.

    Heck, for your information, is the name of a village in Scotland. Nobody ever goes there in a straight line.

    Great Heck and Little Heck are in Yorkshire. If anybody ever goes there it is entirely by accident, possibly on account of the extremity of your shot glasses.

        I passed through there, going to Glasgow from Manchester, some years ago.

          So you’ve been to Heck and back. Admirable. Betcha didn’t go in a straight line.

          Sorry, I’m over my limit here, and I’m not talking about shot glasses.

      And Hell is a place in Norway, but it has fewer than two thousand inhabitants, so something isn’t right.

      For the Brits, by the way, depending on your particular stance on a current non linear process, I believe the Brexit Brewery offers a choice of Brexit Bitter or Brexit Smoothe as topical tipples to top up the tankard with.

        “And Hell is a place in Norway…”

        … and Hell does freeze over, pretty much every year.

          Then there’s Hell Michigan, visited last week. Population less than a thousand.
          Been to Hell and back, want to go to Heaven before going back to Hell.
          Or at least Limbo.

    Are there plans for a bong?

    • Oct 14, 2019 at 10:45 pm


      I don’t smoke anything. So I’m not the person to ask.

    • Oct 15, 2019 at 12:20 am

      You know, that’s an interesting idea. You’d need a good design. Something along the lines of “Your Savings Going Up in Smoke…” or “Funding Secured…”

      I think most quality ones are hand blown, so the only way to customize would be a decal. With that said, we could just make the decals and have a disclaimer that said “Bong Not Included”

      Maybe I should get into the custom decorated bong business. Dispensaries are huge market right now in my industry…and they pay cash.

    Welp, on my budget I’m off to Goodwillie’s any day now to get a mug (they charge $3 or so for mugs there now $%$#%^%#^%$!!!!) and I’ll write “Wuff Stret” on it in solidarity.

    I am from Canada and would prefer to donate +$100 and receive a mug than buy a mug and have it shipped. How much do I need to plop down to ensure shipping is covered?

    Too Big to Fail ale? Sorry, long time overseas lurker, first time poster. Love the website. Do you ship to Europe?

    • Oct 15, 2019 at 8:00 am


      Yes, Ripp ships to Europe. There may be a shipping charge. When you order the mug, and after you fill in your shipping address, you will see it.

    Got this error trying to checkout with PayPal:
    “PayPal token invalid: PayPal ERROR: You do not have permissions to make this API call ”

    It might be on my end though. Will retest in a bit.

    • Oct 15, 2019 at 9:41 am


      Please let me know if it still gives you that error. I will look into it when I get into the office.

      • Oct 15, 2019 at 11:09 am

        This issue should be resolved.

    Please make me one with lead and cadmium in it, so I can piss off a few PC jerks I know.

    Ordered a mug Monday Oct 14 and scheduled for delivery Wednesday Oct 16. Rivals Amazon Prime for delivery time.

    What is the difference between a Czech-American wedding and a Czech-American funeral?

    Funeral has one less person drinking.

    (e.g. I am Czech-American)

      Just went to a beer symposium (Free Food! Free Beer!!!) at the Czech Embassy in DC. Learned stuff:
      • More Czech beer (brewed & consumed) per capita than any other nation
      • Beer saturates Czech culture in ways foreigners would not know
      • The Czech Ambassador tells pretty good beer jokes

    Shipped in less than a day to Fairfield CA.

    Quality mug and the beer is a bonus.
