Superior Christmas Ale - Great Lakes Christmas Ale Clone
‘Tis the season for spiced holiday beers! Our Superior Christmas Ale beer recipe kit is a classic take on the style. Modeled after the quintessential Great Lakes Christmas Ale, it features ginger, cinnamon, and honey to create a malty beer with a warm spice foundation that finishes with a fairly dry ginger-heat snap. Superior Christmas Ale is a brilliantly red ale with layers of spice.
