Catalog No. 1581

Pottery, relief, 2.0L, pewter lid.

�Trink und sing sei stets guter Ding.�
(Drinking and singing are always good things.)
�Gut Bier heilt den Magen, erfrischal das Blut und wandelt den Tiefsinn in frohen Mut.�
(Good beer heals the stomach, refreshes the blood and converts pensiveness into cheerful spirit.)

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.
