Text:
“Ein Trunk beim Tanz in Ehren
den wird dir Niemand wehren.”

(A drink while doing an honorable dance
will not be denied to you by anyone.)
“Juhe!”

“Auf dein Wohl.” (some versions)
(To your health.)

Franz Defregger (1835-1921) was a Munich artist and professor whose depictions of Tyrolean life have come to symbolize the genre and are often seen on beer steins.

A variation of this stein (below right) replaces the saying on the “standard” version with a castle scene. Side images of Tyrolean dancers are the same on both versions.
