Notes/Commercial Description:
”Do you know what dwells in a glass?” asks Ole, in Hans Christian Andersen's The Watchman of the Tower.

I first had this beer when I was living in Missouri. If you ever have the opportunity to try it make sure you do! Wonderful flavor with a high alcohol content. This (at least for me) is a beer that I only have one at a time. It goes very well as an after dinner beer.
