Gambrinus in Beer Barrel

Catalog No. 725

Pottery, figural, 2.5L.

Text:
“Mässig trinken, fröhlich singen,
half von je zu guten Dingen.”

(Drinking moderately, singing happily,
have always brought good things.)

Gambrinus, “the king of beer”, has long been a universal symbol of beer and brewing. It has been suggested that the character may be drawn from the claimed real-life inventor of hopped malt beer, Jan Primus (Johann I), a 13th-century Belgian Duke and President of the Brussels Guild of Brewers.

Same model number applied to a stein depicting Gnomes.
