Drinkers in Hops Vines

Catalog No. 301

Pottery or stoneware, relief, 3.0L, inlaid lid.

The center figure on this stein was almost certainly intended to depict Gambrinus, �the king of beer�, long 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.
