“Enjoy Life”

Catalog No. 380

Pottery, relief, 1.0L, pewter lid.

Text:
“Willst du echte deutsche Kraft, trinke des Gambrinus Saft.”
(If you want real German strength, drink Gambrinus juice [beer].)

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.
