Product Description

Hops, Water and Barley: Oh My!

German purity law half liter stone mug Authentic German mug reminds you to keep out of the creek before brewing day.

Worldwide, the definition of what exactly defines an adult beverage as a “beer” is slowly being diluted. Between the large magnitude of malt beverages, fruity drinks that may have utilized a hop or two, and the downright bizarre creations flooding the market, the standard for true beer aficionados can be traced all way back to 1516 with the passage of the German purity law.

In order to regulate the open market grain prices, it was legislated that only water, barley, and hops could now be used in beer making. In order to be considered a true German “beer” these laws are still in place today.

An Authentic German Mug With a Dash of Humor

This mug is guaranteed to make you the life of almost any social gathering. People will constantly be approaching you to inquire about exactly what bizarre scene is taking place on this beautiful, half-liter beer mug.

Depicted on its surface you will find Herr Burgermeister, the town mayor, establishing the German Purity Law. He states that since the creek water is to be used for brewing on Wednesday, citizens are no longer allowed to relieve themselves in the water source on Tuesday. The mug reads:

"Der Herr Burgermeister gibt bekannt, dass am Mittwoch Bier gebraut wird und deshalb ab Dienstage nicht mehr in den Bach geschissen werden darf!"

Which translates in the King’s English to:

"The mayor has announced that beer will be brewed on Wednesday and that therefore on Tuesdays, there should be no more [explicative] in the creek."
