|~ Beim Frühschoppen ~|
|Oh well, it's 5:00 O'clock somewhere. The Frühschoppen (early stein) is the precursor to the Dämmerungsschoppen (twilight stein - discussed under that name). These are gatherings of friends or family to have a social drink at appointed times. The stein (without lid) is marked "Musterschutz 346" (patented 346), ca. 1900.|
Des Lebens Sonnenschein
ist trinken und fröhlich sein.
With the early stein (of beer).
is drinking and being happy.
