Method 

Cookies:

In a medium bowl mix molasses, brown sugar, Christmas Ale, and softened butter until smooth. In a separate bowl mix remaining dry ingredients. Combine wet and dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Wrap dough and chill for at least 3 hours. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly flour a rolling pin and surface to roll out dough. For cut out cookies, dough should be about 1/4 inch thick. Cut dough into desired shapes and place about 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Let cool completely on wire racks before frosting.

Frosting:

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
