English: This is the true story of how ”Hr. Papsø on Acid” was born:
One day at Amager Bryghus (Amager Brewery) one brewer said to the other:
”Damm, I hate how this Papsø dude is always so cool and controlled. Shouldn’t we do something about it?”. The other brewer answered: “Hell yeah, you’re right. Way too cool for my liking – and so tense. Listen, my mum just returned from her yearly pilgrimage to Haight-Ashbury. She brought back this small bag of local herbs, will that be any good to loosen him up a bit?”. The first brewer sniffed to the small herbal bag and said: “They sure smell funny, let’s spike up Hr. Papsø!”
What happened next, nobody knows – yet…
This beer was made in honor of our dear friend, Mr. Henrik Papsø, who reached 20,000 ratings in 2011 at Ratebeer.com – we thank him for his support of Amager Bryghus!
A Quad aged on a port barrel. Brewed with malt, hops, candy syrup, yeast, local Haight-Ashbury herbs and...Brett.
