Default Need help translating German stein.

I have two beer steins that seem to be a pair, one of them I was able to translate using an online translator. The other one however is only coming up with half the words, I could be misreading them. Here is what I got

Sind dirtrocken Kals und Bung
Kehr hier zu kiihlein Drunk

Which came out translating to

Are dirtrocken Kals and Bung
Return here to kiihlein Drunk

I don't know any german, but it looks like you've misread a few words. I see:

Sind dir trocken hals und Bung
Kehr hier zu kühlem trunk

which google translates to:

Are you dry neck and environment
Return here to cool drink

I'm sure there's a bit lost in google translation there, but that sounds closer to me...

That makes a lot more sense, thank you
Still not sure what Bung is, can not seem to find it anywhere it can be translated.

Bung, might actual be Jung making it say

Sind dir trocken Hals und jung / Kehr hier ein zu kühlem trunk
Are you dry throat and young / return here to a cool drink

Thoughts?

I only studied German two years but I see a couple things--apostrophes which could mean they left off letters, and the B in Bung could be an "ess-tsett" or double S.

Also 'Hals' can be translated as throat.

SWMBO is German and say it reads thusly:

Kehr' hier ein zu kühlem Trunk
Sind dir trocken Hals und Zung'

Which translates to:

Come in here for a cool drink
If your throat and tongue are dry.
