Gambrinus Raising Chalice

Catalog No. 477

Stoneware, relief, 0.4L, pewter lid.

“Hopfen und Malz, Gott erhalt’s.”
(Hops and malt, may God preserve them.)

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.

A special order version of this stein is also known to exist (below right) with Romanian text in the side panels reading: “Hameig si Slad Dumedeu ne a dat.” (God gave us barley and hops.)
