Not everyone must have a Christmas Ale. For those folks, Market Garden Brewery in Cleveland offers up Festivus Ale starting Tuesday (Nov. 1). It's a play on the famous Seinfeld episode featuring the made-up holiday of Festivus. It's also a funny name choice because one of the best known Christmas beers -- Great Lakes Christmas Ale -- is brewed right around the corner from Market Garden. Brewer Andy Tveekrem calls it "an alternative to other Christmas Ales that some folks may be familiar with. It's a Festivus for the rest of us!" The 8 percent holiday beer is brewed with ginger, allspice, cinnamon and brown sugar. "It is very smooth thanks to the caramelized wort -- similar to Scotch ale brewing technique -- we use as a base," he said.
