Gambrinus Raising Chalice

Catalog No. 477

Stoneware, relief, 0.4L, pewter lid, side panels vary.

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.

This stein is somewhat unusual in that that was specifically intended for special orders. All versions displayed the same central image, but with varying side panels and pewter fittings suited to the customer’s requirements.

Price Range: $40-$60
