Boulevard Sixth Glass

Advent Calendar Day: 12


Boulevard describes their quad like so:

”Do you know what dwells in a glass?” asks Ole, in Hans Christian Andersen’s The Watchman of the Tower. Better known for stories such as The Little Mermaid, Andersen wrote this short, cautionary tale for a somewhat older audience. Our quadrupel ale, also meant for the mature connoisseur, is a deep and mysterious libation, dark auburn and full-bodied, its sweetness deceptive. As Ole describes the glasses in turn, their contents become more ominous until, in the sixth glass…

And so, of course, we feel compelled to provide the original story, for your reading pleasure while you search for the demon in the bottle before you. Enjoy!

Ole the Tower-Keeper

(And, for those of you keeping track, The Little Mermaid is a cautionary tale as well…)
