North Drinkware’s Mt. Hood Pint Glass Scores Nearly $350,000 First Week on Kickstarter

Oregon Pint

Setting out to create a drinking glass that stands out from the rest, Portland-based North Drinkware has launched a crowdfunding campaign Kickstarter for The Oregon Pint.

Oregon Pint 2The North Drinkware team stated, “We made The Oregon Pint because we wanted a glass with a connection to the places we live and play. We were seeking a glass that was crafted with the same skill, care, and consideration as the beer we love to drink. The Oregon Pint delivers an enhanced experience when enjoying a beer and swapping stories after a ride, a day on the hill, or when gathering with friends and family.”

Sharing more details about the pint glasses’ design, the team noted, “Using United States Geological Survey (USGS) data (depicting, ridges, canyons, and peak), a 3D model of Mt. Hood is integrated into the mold so your beer cascades around the mountain when you pour it into the glass. The Oregon Pint delivers a connection to the mountains that surround us, and the satisfying experience of drinking a local crafted beer out of a local crafted glass – all made here in Oregon.

Oregon Pint 3“In making The Oregon Pint, we’ve combined modern technology with the old world craft of blowing glass to make a beautiful and relevant new product. With our design concept in place we took USGS topographical data of Mt. Hood and converted it to a digital 3D model. We then made 3D prints of our designs for design evaluation and prototyping. Once we were satisfied with our design, we created molds for our first blown glass prototypes. With our design finalized, we’ve ordered our first production mold and are almost ready to start production.”

Those who back the project will receive some very unique perks, including the pint glass itself, a Mt. Hood coaster, and even a chance of making their own glass. Since its launch on Sunday (February 1st), the project’s campaign has raised $347,086 from 3,711 backers. It is set to close on March 5th.
