~ Gerstensaft die liebe Gab ~
Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't is half the message on this beautiful crystal glass beer stein made around early 1900s.
Gerstensaft die liebe Gab,
spület allen Kummer ab.
Barley juice (beer) the beloved gift,
washes all troubles away.

This same verse appears on this hand painted glass pitcher, ca. 1900.
