Probably no other river in Europe is known for so many mythical stories: The Rhine, which our forefathers called RHENUS PATER („Papa or father Rhine“).

Celtic and Germanic tribes venerated him as a God, to be save from high water.
As a ritual, they held their newborn children into the cold water and sacrificed him beer. In times of Romantisicm, the forgotten legends found a revival and became very famous in poetry and lyrics.


PAPA RHEIN is made of the original Gaffel Kölsch. The twice-distilled creation is an exclusively, soft-malted beer spirit with a delicate touch of hops and dedicated to the beloved river god „PAPA RHEIN“.
