Prosit, SCI’s quarterly publication, contains feature articles on beer stein related subjects, plenty of photographs, news of regional meetings, free advertisements for members in the “stein exchange”, and advertisements for stein auctions, sales, and other events of interest to stein collectors. Since our beginning in 1965, more than 5000 pages have been published in Prosit, including most of the historical research about artists and manufacturers of steins which has been conducted during that period. The current issue is 52 pages including informative and well-illustrated articles provided by our member-authors. Most of these articles address topics that cannot be found anywhere else in print.
