Christmas Ale's arrival means a couple of things: angels singing, Advil pounding, and more than one regrettable night fueled by GLBC's version of crack.
This year, however, there will be a bonus for Christmas Ale disciples: Mitchell's Ice Cream and Great Lakes have teamed up for... wait for it... Christmas Ale Ginger Snap ice cream.
The new flavor will incorporate residual Christmas Ale that’s leftover from the bottling process, as well as local honey and homemade ginger snaps.
Christmas Ale Ginger Snap will be released on Nov. 1 and can be found at Mitchell’s five locations in Northeast Ohio. The cinnamon-seasoned ice cream can also be purchased for dessert and in to-go pints at Great Lakes Brewery.
October 25 marks the tap date for Christmas Ale. October 26 marks the first Christmas Ale-related hangover.
