In Cleveland, when Christmas ale goes on sale it is a sign that the holidays are coming.
This holiday in a cup has the option of being served with brown sugar on the rim. The first sip is like christmas day. The consistency and flavor instantly brings warmth to the soul. I wish they would raise the ABV count back up to what it use to be to add some more warmth. All in all it is a tradition for me. Nothing like walking in from a snowy day and warming up to a glass of this brew. It is the only reason why I look forward to Cleveland winters.
