In his time, Grutte Pier was the biggest and strongest man on earth. With his enormous sword he beheaded with ease in one swing six Dutchmen. The power which he needed for that came from the love for his family, friends and Friesland.

There are also stories that he gained his strength through a peculiar potion from a picturesque Gallic village. This magic potion was said to have medicinal qualities and to be life empowering. The alchemists who made these potions are also the inventors of the very first recipe for the Frisian beverage 'Beerenburger'.

The ingredients of these potions are used in this beer. Elixer is a Frisian Hero Stout with Boomsma 'Beerenburger' and is so powerful that it needs to be consumed with some caution.
