I don't think I've had their Christmas Ale, so I"ll be looking out for it! They have a lot of other worthy beers in their arsenal.

They lowered the alcohol on it (again) from what I've been told. It's at 7.5% where as last year I think it was 9%...

I can never tell whether people mean the American great lakes.

Or the Canadian great lakes.

I assume you meant this one?

It actually used to be alot higher. It has a nickname here in Cleveland, "Christmas Jail". It used to only take about two pints and you were smashed. But the non-cool people complained about this so much that they lowered the alcohol content...thus ruining it for the rest of us.
