ZURICH BOOGG

BREW DOG LIBERTINE BLACK ALE

In front of the Boogg (Snowman) before it is set on fire as part of the Sechselauten Spring festival in Zurich.The head of the snowman figure is filled with explosives and tradition says that the time it takes from lighting the pyre to the main explosive charge detonating is an indicator of what the forthcoming Summer will be like. The longer it takes, the wetter the summer, but they do cheat and spray it with petrol if it looks like being a damp squib!
