I couldn't find one on The Google, Willie, but thanks for bringing this fun old thread back to life! Meanwhile, here's a little souvenir for you. ...
a couple of interesting quips about the jingle;
1. evidently, the original lyrics were penned by a Richard Hovey (1864-1900), an American poet/lyricist/playwright. He wrote a piece called "Spring" in the larger work, "Along The Trail - A Book Of Lyrics" (1899). He wrote:
"A Stein Song"
Give a rouse, then, in the Maytime
For a life that knows no fear!
Turn night-time into daytime
With the sunlight of good cheer!
For it’s always fair weather
When good fellows get together
With a stein on the table and a good song ringing clear.

etc.....

2. In 1943, there's a copyright claim for "Fehr's Beer Jingle", words and music by a Ginger Gray for Orange Music, New York.

Yeah, and it is a great beer. Reminds me of my dad sneaking me a beer on the porch when we got done mowing the lawn as a teen. :D

The house the original Fehrs Beer mogul built is still standing on Lexington Rd.

Yes that’s it. It was on the market for a long time. It was being offered with all the original blueprints. I don’t recall it being sold but maybe it was.
Did you know John Yarmuth’s father once owned Fehrs Beer? I believe I was told that was up until prohibition. At that time John’s father opened all the taps and poured the entire stock into the gutters. What else could you do? Well, legally. How long after prohibition he sold it ( or if it simply folded) I don’t know.
