GLBC makes the popular, seasonal ale available for two months. It is spiced with cinnamon, ginger and honey. “It outsells all of our other brands. Actually, during its season, it outsells all other beers in Northeast Ohio,” Purcell said. [...] The GLBC makes more than 25,000 barrels of Christmas Ale every season.
They buy 20 semis full of 55-gallon drums of honey, import cinnamon sticks from Indonesia and cut fresh ginger themselves for this brew.
