CLEVELAND -- Christmas Ale will be flowing from the tap starting at 4 p.m. Tuesday.

TheGreat Lakes Brewing Company in Ohio City plans to tap the first keg of the season as the weather outside is more summer than winter.

On tap is the only way to get Christmas Ale right now but six-packs will go on sale on Halloween on Monday in the Great Lakes Brewery's gift shop.

It will be the first week in November before local distributors will start featuring the ale.

Trying to find Christmas Ale? There's a"beer-finder" on theGreat Lakes Brewing Company website that will help you do just that or find any other Great Lakes beer.
