The “§11” visible on the front of the beer stein makes reference to the Bier-Comment (beer code) of Heidelberg University, which begins with paragraph 11. Paragraphs 1 through 10 are left blank and are generally presumed to be the Biblical ten commandments. Paragraph 11 of the Heidelberg code reads: “Es wird fortgesoffen,” which is often (if loosely) translated as “Keep on drinking.”
