The image illustrates a song that describes the tumultuous fallout following a laborer’s decision to open a home-brewed alehouse with his wife. The situation quickly degenerates as the smith returns from work to find his house invaded by “Riotous Wynebibbing Beasts” and finds his serving wench trading pots for kisses, and later finds her with a patron in his own bed.
