~ Genieß' im edlen Gerstensaft ~
A good hardy beer is a complete meal, but don't overdo it, is the theme on this light relief stein by Reinhold Hanke marked "R.H. Germany 1235, ca. 1900.
Genieß' im edlen Gerstensaft,
des Weines Geist, des Brodes Kraft.

Nicht zuviel
Enjoy in the noble barley juice (beer)
the spirit of wine and the strength of bread.

Not too much!
