A beer we would buy when we lived in Akron Ohio .Have ben to the brewery several time in our 50 plus years living there always bought enough to save and celebrate Christmas in July. Glad to find a place to purchase it and get it shipped to Dothan Alabama. The service is great from your company will use them again. Thanks Dave from Alabama.

I get Christmas Ale for my husband every year. Since we have moved to South Carolina we have to buy it online but it's always something he looks forward to and remembers Cleveland whenever he has it. Always a winner!

The GREATEST beer mankind has ever made

I first tried this when I moved to Cleveland 13 years ago. I was told it tastes phenomenal however be careful how many I drink #7.5%. As a monster beer drinker I didn't believe them. After 4 beers I didn't remember anything other than it tasted fantastic! Been hooked since...#GreatLakesBreweryIsHeaven

We moved from Ohio to Florida years ago. We missed GL Christmas Ale so much! A friend told us about Belgian Style Ale so we ordered a case. Everything was perfect! The shipping so fast and customer service was fantastic! The beer was packaged so well we were beyond impressed! It's great to have our beer again and will be regulars! Thank you!

This was such a treat for my boyfriend who is from Ohio! I searched for months and was lucky enough to find this. He couldn't go home for Christmas so I brought a little piece of him to him. I bought the variety pack and several packs of the Christmas Ale. Nobody makes Christmas Ale like Great Lakes! This will be an annual thing I do for him.

The only thing my husband misses about Ohio! This beer. We can not get it down in South Carolina where we live. The closest place that says they carry it is up in North Carolina. So, I got him some as a surprise. They were packed perfectly and arrived safe and sound. Very impressed. So very glad that they ship out of state!!!!

I first tasted this beer on a trip to Ohio a few years ago - it was love at first taste! This year instead of making my husband bring the beer in the suitcase, I bought it directly from Belgianstyleale.com - it was easy and convenient to bring this beauty to Us! Cheers/ Salud!!

I was living in Ohio for 4 years and really loved Great Lakes Christmas ale! So when i moved back out to CA i was disappointed that I couldn't get it out here. I decided to order a case and this will definitely be a yearly tradition. Everyone who tried the beer loved it!

This is THE BEST Christmas Ale available or that I've come across. I look forward to it every Christmas Season. It's amazing with a brown sugar and cinnamon ring on the edge of a cold mug or beer glass. Doing this really highlights all the flavors in the ale. Cheers!

Only website to have this specific brew and that ships to the west coast. Order took a while to process, but to be expected in December. Traveled fast by UPS Ground service once it got out (2400 mi. in 4 days). Arrived day before Xmas Eve, timely for gifting. Savored by many tongues! Will definitely re-order! Thanks to all, and happy new year!

Great Lakes Christmas Ale never disappoints. A good friend moved out of state recently and was disappointed that he would have to spend the holiday season without our favorite Christmas Ale. I surprised him with an early Christmas gift! Delivery was on time and the precious ale was as tasty as ever. Thank you Belgian-Style Ales for helping me send some Christmas cheer!

Of all the great Lakes beers this is always the most anticipated release of the year. This is by far the best seasonal beer on the market. I lived in Cleveland for many years and this is the one thing I miss most about it. The best beer in the nation
