Krug law

Old from jug (Vessel) derived designation for the right granted in the late Middle Ages for the commercial entertainment of guests in a restaurant. However, this did not include the right to accomodation. Often, however, it was also coupled with brewing rights (brewery names). The owner of the Krug right was also called "Kruger". In former times, the founder or colonizer of a village (locator) commissioned by aristocratic or clerical landlords was often given the Krug right in addition to the Mahlrecht (the alignment of christening, engagement and wedding). Later it was mostly exercised by the village school. The right to pour wine was also called Leitgeben designated. Similar rights as with the Krugrecht gave it also with a Tavernwirtschaft.
