Text:
“Italiens Wein so süß und fein brach doch der Römer morsch Gebein.
Im Bier jedoch und Rettigsaft steht ewig junge deutsche Kraft.”

(Italy’s wine so sweet and fine broke the Romans brittle bones.
However, beer and radish juice forever maintains young German strength.)

Central image is taken from an illustration by Heinrich Schlitt (1849-1923), part of an 1890 mural that once graced the Wiesbaden Ratskeller, but was sadly destroyed in World War II.
