|~ Vivat! dir, o Gerstensaft ~|
|A praise to beer is presented on this blue/gray/manganese salt-glazed stoneware stein ca. 1900.|
Vivat! dir, o Gerstensaft,
deiner Würze, deiner Kraft.
Long life to you, o barley juice,
your spice, your strength.
|The same verse is found on this etched HR (Hauber & Reuther) stein, mold number 10, ca. 1900, shown below.|
