“Gambrinus hiess der edle Mann der’s Bier ersann.”
(Gambrinus was the noble man’s name 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.
