Barrel Aged Christmas Ale Is Coming Soon!

A Yuletide favorite has gotten the bourbon barrel treatment to make this holiday season extra jolly. Barrel Aged Christmas Ale is coming down the chimney and will be released in 22 oz. bottles exclusively at the GLBC Gift Shop on Wednesday, November 22.

Aged in bourbon barrels for 7 months, our beloved Christmas Ale is now as naughty as it is nice. Holiday spices and sweet honey are wrapped up with notes of wood and vanilla, adding depth that’ll keep you a-wassailin’ all season long. Do not open until Christmas? Well, maybe, but this brew will bring good tidings fresh from the bottle or after some time in the cellar.
