So here are some top picks:

There’s only one thing better than watching the Cubbies start off the 2017 season: watching the Cubbies start off the 2017 season while drinking an ice-cold frosty one from a big ol’ Cubs stein made from actual pieces of a German castle*. Old-world charm meets the New World (Cubs) Order!

*Note: not actually made from German castle. But tell your friends it is!
