CLEVELAND, Ohio - It's the most wonderful time for beer!

Great Lakes Brewing Company's Christmas Ale returned Thursday with first pour festivities at its brew pub in Ohio City.

People were also able to celebrate the honey and cinnamon ale with beer-infused donuts from Brewnuts, holiday music and photos with Santa. There will be Christmas Ale-themed food specials all day.

Bottles and kegs of Christmas Ale will be available in the GLBC gift shop on Friday. You can start getting it at stores on Oct. 28.

Great Lakes Brewing Company said it is unable to accommodate table reservations and it will not fill growlers on first pour day.
