NOTE: Several of you have reached out to ask if it is possible to contribute a smaller amount directly to our artisans, because you are incredibly good, kind people. If you'd like to do this, please get in touch and we can arrange it. 

As you may know, our Beerbarian Wooden Steins are made by a team of artisans in Ukraine. They are based in Mariupol, which is one of the hardest-hit places in all of Ukraine since Russia began its violent invasion.

As of a week ago they were safe, but with almost no access to electricity or internet connectivity. Since then, almost all communication from Mariupol has ceased. We are very, very worried about them.

UPDATE, March 15: we just received word that the chief artisan and his family are ALIVE! We cannot share more, for safety’s sake. But we are providing all the support we can - and this auction is more important now than ever.

So we will be auctioning off our very last Beerbarian Stein, quite possibly the last one that will ever be made, with 100% of all auction proceeds going directly to the artisans.

This auction isn't just for the stein, though. It's for much more. Some of our most famous friends have donated autographed goodies and other swag to make this winner-takes-all bundle the BEST NERDY PACKAGE EVER!

Here's what's included so far... but this list will continue to grow, so keep checking back and bidding up! 

  • Our very last Storm Crow Beerbarian Stein, made with love in Ukraine
  • A $100 gift card to the Storm Crow online store or Storm Crow Manor (winner's choice)
  • A Carson Teva Star Wars card autographed by Paul Sun-Hyung Lee (Kim's Convenience, The Mandalorian, Avatar: The Last Airbender)
  • An item autographed by Jewel Staite (Firefly, Stargate: Atlantis)
  • An autographed graphic novel from Gail Simone (Wonder Woman, Red Sonja, Birds of Prey, Batgirl)
  • A signed art print and a signed copy of The Summer Dragon by legendary D&D and fantasy artist Todd Lockwood
  • Autographed copies of  Rick and Morty VS Dungeons & Dragons Vol. 1 Limited Edition hardcover, Rick and Morty VS Dungeons & Dragons II complete set of 4 character cover variants, and Disney Kingdoms: Figment collector's edition, from Jim Zub
  • Six signed art prints of your choice by art-TikTok legend Lee Howard
  • Autographed copies of Hench by Natalie Zina Walschots and Company Town by Madeline Ashby, both CBC Canada Reads finalists
  • Signed copies of The Ghost Hunter's Survival Guide and Haunting Experiences: Encounters with the Otherworldly by paranormal expert and media personality Michelle Belanger
  • A signed copy of Six Feet Under and Killing It by novelist, mountain man and swordsmith Erik Shoquist
  • A Blu-Ray package from Elevation Pictures
  • A gorgeous major-arcana Tarot deck from Temperance Tonics
  • And more!

The list is growing by the hour, so please check back often to see if your favourite nerd celeb has donated something!

And if you yourself are a nerd celeb and you'd like to contribute, send us a note at shopkeep@stormcrow.com; we'd love to include as many goodies as possible to raise as much as we can!

A note:

If the worst happens and the artisans who make the Beerbarian Steins do not survive the war, the proceeds will go to their families if we are able to get the funds to them.

If we are not able to get the auction proceeds either to the artisans or to their families, we will donate them to Meagan's HUG Appeal for Ukraine, which is working with the Ukrainian-Canadian Congress to bring 10 Ukrainian refugee children with cancer to Canada, in memory of the children killed in Russia's assault on a children's hospital in Mariupol.
