|~ 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.|
