~ Trink' so lang der Becher wingt ~
This 2 L. salt-glazed stoneware stein of unknown dating poses a question that's answered on another stein on this site entitled "Im Himmel gibt's kein Bier" (In Heaven there is no beer). The conclusion is exactly the same: "drum trinken wir es hier" (therefore we'll drink it while we're here).
Trink' so lang der Becher wingt,
trinke alle Tage.
Ob im Jenseits auch man trinkt,
das ist eine Frage.
I drink as long as the beaker beckons,
I drink all the days.
Whether one drinks also in the hereafter,
that's another question.
