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.)
