You can't truly enjoy a beer while playing 'The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" unless you're drinking it out of a Dragon Head Beer Stein. These crafty beer mugs were created by Etsy Merchant Jason Chischilly of Chischilly Pottery.

The mugs may remind you of the dragons from Skyrim, but they are actually inspired by Ancient Greece. The mugs are actually 'rhytons:' ceremonial goblets carved in the shape of an animal's head and filled with a drink as an offering to the gods.

The historical significance of the Dragon Head Beer Stein makes it great for non-drinkers as it could easily hold its own as a decorative piece. Still, the goblet is designed to hold all 16 ounces of your favorite adult beverage of choice and should be used as such to avoid offending the gods. These steins sell for between $40 and $45 and come in a variety of styles and colors.
