Barley and Hops with Saying

Catalog No. (T120)

Pottery, threaded relief, 0.25L, inlaid lid.

Text:
“Gerstensaft und Hopfen giebt gar gute Tropfen.”
(Barley juice and hops give no good drops.)

The somewhat unusual text on this stein, suggesting that barley juice and hops, the principal ingredients in traditional beer, produce a less than satisfying product, appears to be a sentiment that might be expressed at Zum Franziskaner (see lid inlay), a Munich Restaurant best known for its Franziskaner Weissbier, a wheat beer and competitor to barley-based brews.

Price Range: $90-$125
