~ Brunnensaft gibt wenig Kraft ~
This is a cute little rhyme, but the bottom line really says it all on this light relief glazed pottery stein ca. 1900.
gibt wenig Kraft,
drum sag' ich dir,
trink gutes Bier.
Fountain juice (water)
gives little strength,
therefore I say to you,
drink good beer.
 This verse also appears on this stein, ca. 1900:
