~ Sei's schäumndes Bier ~
It is a nice sentiment to wish your dear friend to always drink their beer and wine pure. This stein is marked with the Mettlach logo and mold number 1727 and dated 1886.
Sei's schäumndes Bier,
sei's perlender Wein,
eines wünsch ich dir,
trink beides stets rein.
Be it foaming beer,
be it pearly wine,
I wish to you,
drink both always pure.
