Gambrinus

Catalog No. 123

Pottery or stoneware, relief, 1.0L, pewter lid.

Text:
“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.

Same model number applied to an (earlier design) featuring the same text and similar subject-matter, but with a different overall appearance.
