Text:
“Ein guter frischer Gerstensaft, die echte deutsche Arbeitskraft.”
(A good fresh beer, the real German strength.)

Gambrinus (lid figure), “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.
