Text:
“Trinkt auch mancher And’re aus Gold feinen Wein,
wir freu’n uns nicht minder beim Bierkrug von Stein.”

(Even if some others drink fine wine out of gold,
we are no less happy with our beer stein made of stoneware.)

This is a late 19th century interpretation of a form that dates back to around 1550. Bearded man jugs (Bartmannkrüge) feature the face of a bearded man at the neck representing the mythical woodland Wild Man of Germanic folklore, a symbol of strength and endurance.
