~ Es lehret uns die Wissenschaft ~
Here are more good reasons to drink only beer and wine on this modern stein (without lid) marked "Western Germany", ca. post WWII.
Es lehret uns die Wissenschaft
wie man den Durst soll stillen,
im Wein liegt Wahrheit, Bier gibt Kraft
im Wasser schwimmen Bazillen.
Science has taught us
how one should quench his thirst,
in wine lays truth, beer gives strength
and in water swim bacteria.
