~ Die Všter haben's uns gelehrt ~
 
This verse is teaching us how our forefathers could empty a full stein in one gulp, but I think that's a little ambitious with this 1 liter, glass stein with a hand painted decor, ca. 1900.
 
Die Všter haben's uns gelehrt,
wie man die vollen Humpen leert.
(Our) fathers have taught us,
how one is to empty a full stein.
