Holiday Beer Guide

Share on Nextdoor

Oh, how the holiday season in Cleveland has changed. Instead of waiting in line to see Mr. Jingeling at Halle's, we're battling crowds at the Crocker Park Apple store. What hasn't changed is Clevelanders' love for beer — in fact, it's grown exponentially. And for beer aficionados, December has become practically a holy month, the time when all the brewpubs roll out their holiday creations. Here's a quick guide to holiday beers, and where to find them. All you need now is a designated driver. —Jason Beudert
