~ Die Honoratioren des Dorfes hier ~
The village politicians are having a big discussion and drinking "Eberl Bräu" (Boars Brew) as advertised on the sign on the wall, but nothing gets accomplished except the passing of money to the innkeeper as usual in these situations. The etched stein is marked with the Mettlach logo, mold number 2886 and date 1905.
Die Honoratioren des Dorfes hier,
sie schwelgen bei Politik und Bier.
Den grössten Profit an der Diskussion
trägt der wirt durch die Zeche davon.
The notables of the village here,
they indulge in politics and beer,
the greatest profit of the discussion
sustains the inn thru the drinking.
