    German Medal- 16 hour beer clock

    I found this under medals on ebay. Although calling it a medal is a stretch, it still is intriguing. The clock face has "Royal Bavarian Beer Clock " and the back has "Hops and Malt, God preserves(?)" Does anyone know the meaning of the 16 hour clock?
    Thanks

    you use it to count the beers you have had, obviously they think you should be done after 16 beers.

    I would agree with that now at 51, but when I was 25, I would have argued that 16 was just getting warmed up.
