Text:
“Wohl bekomm’s”
(To your health)
“Beim Saft des Gambrinus, denk’ nicht an Plus und Minus.
Viel besser krähet jeder Hahn wenn er die Kehle feuchtet an.”

(While partaking of the juice of Gambrinus, don’t think of plus and minus.
All roosters crow much better with a moistened throat.)

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.
