That choice of name came from the brook Igelbäcken in northern Stockholm, in english Leechbrook and in german Egelsbach, that flowed about 600 meters from the place the lager was brewed. The name looked authentic german, and the beer, made from a Coopers Lager can, was quite drinkable.
Some years later, in 1998, the writer passed a roadsign in southern Germany, pointing off the Frankfurt-Basel autobahn, pointing to a place actually called Egelsbach.
If the town wants to, and gives this page an useful link, we would be happy to link the town from here. Use www.egelsbacher.se/arl1 to find the webmaster, but replace the "1" with an "i" to get there. And the same counts of course for if the town would wish us to show the coat of arms on this page. And sometimes we would be happy to visit the town.
