Catalog No. 1420

Pottery, relief, 0.75L, pewter lid.

Text:
“Willst du echte Deutsche Kraft,
trinke des Gambrinus Saft [beer]!”

(If you want true German strenth,
drink the juice of Gambrinus!)

Text reference is to 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.
