CLEVELAND - The countdown to the release of Great Lakes Brewing Company’s Christmas Ale is on. But this year, there will be another way to enjoy one of Northeast Ohio’s favorite beers.
On Monday, Great Lakes Brewing Company and Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream announced an ice cream for the holiday season: Christmas Ale Ginger Snap.
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 Lake Brewery.
This is the second time Mitchell’s and GLBC have come together to make a frozen treat. Edmund Fitzgerald Porter Chocolate Chunk is already at GLBC’s pub.
GLBC will tap their kegs of Christmas Ale on Oct. 25 at their pub in Ohio City and on Oct. 31 they will start selling six-packs in the gift shop.
