Oh Christmas Ale, Oh Christmas Ale…

by Renee on October 26, 2011

Another October 25th Christmas Ale release from Great Lakes Brewing Company brought fans of the holiday brew to the pub in droves once again. This was my second year attending this event, a favorite beer milestone in the 216.

This year the brewery held a contest to find the biggest Christmas Ale lover to take the first sip, and they found my friend Katherine Boyd and her husband Eric Mzik worthy with their story of true love found over a glass of the stuff.

Right now you can only get this year’s version in draft form at the pub, but soon you’ll be seeing it in 6-packs at your local beer retailer.

Great Lakes released another fall favorite on the same day to much less fanfare, but no fewer fans: you can now buy the Blackout Stout in the Great Lakes gift shop. Cheers!
