On this 0.5 liter stoneware mug Herr Burgermeister (the mayor) declares the German Beer Brewing Purity Law for the town with bell & scroll in hand. Art Nouveau style flowers border the sides of the image. The purity law, centuries old, states that the creek water is to be used for beer brewing on Wednesday and therefore the townsfolk can no longer "go" or "geschissen" in the creek starting on Tuesday. The German reads: "Der Herr Burgermeister gibt bekannt, dass am Mittwoch Bier gebraut wird und deshalb ab Dienstage nicht mehr in den Bach geschissen werden darf!"

I bought my hubby this mug and one other for Xmas--we were both impressed by the quality of the mug -very nice workmanship and then the pricing is fantastic! We would definitely recommend this mug and manufacturer--its a great value!
Our neighbor is from Germany and when I showed it to her at a party we had, she immediately read it aloud in German and then translated for everyone!
