Text:
“Es spricht Gambrinus Herr und König,
trink mässig, doch trink nie zu wenig.”

(Gambrinus the master and king says,
drink in moderation, but never too little.)

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.
