Default My new Christmas stein. Can you read German?

I got a German Stein for Christmas. I love it! Can you help me translate the German wording on it?

I'm not fluent, but can usually pick it apart enough to get the jist.

Literal:
If you haven't had a Rauch your not a good man.
There are noble beers in the Pantoffelhelden.

Loose:
Only the good men drink Rauch.
The noble beers of Pantoffelhelden.

It's been many years since I studied German, but with the aid of an online translator, here's what I get out of it:

"Whoever has never been drunk is not a good man"

"The noble beer gives even the hen-pecked husband strength."


Of course I could be totally off the track, too.
