�Gambrinus werde ich genannt, K�nig von Flandern und Babrant.
Ich habe aus Gerste Malz gemacht und zuerst das Bier erdacht.
Drumm k�nnen die Brauer mit Stolz bekunden,
da� ein K�nig es war, der das Bier erfunden.�
(I am called Gambrinus King of Flanders and Babrant.
I make malt from barley and invented beer first.
Therefore the brewers can announce with pride,
that it was a king who invented beer.)

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.
