Krug law

Old from jug (Vessel) derived name 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 the past, the founder or colonizer of a village (locator), who had been commissioned by aristocratic or spiritual landlords, was often granted Krug law in addition to the Mahlrecht (the alignment of baptism, betrothal and wedding feasts). Later it was mostly exercised by the village school. The right to pour wine was also called Leitgeben designated. Similar rights as with Krugrecht, there was also a tavern.
