�Ein guter Trunk aus Gerste u. Hopfen,
das sind die besten Nahrungstropfen.�
(A good drink from barley and hops,
these are the best nourishment drops.)
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.
