Georg Friedrich Klotter is my 1st cousin, 5x removed. Thank you for posting this information about him. I guess you would have a hard time believing that I have never developed a taste for beer!
Is it possible I could use this image to get a t-shirt made?

It’s fine by me, but I don’t own the copyright on any of the images. In fact probably no one does given their age, they’re more than likely in the public domain.
