Bent Paddle's is once again celebrating the holidays with a tasty ale that benefits the Bentleyville Tour of Lights. They're also launching the American Red Cross in Minnesota Holiday Mail For Heroes local card signing program for local military.

Christmas Cookie Cream Ale is a seasonal favorite which Bent Paddle will be tapping at a special event on Friday, November 12. Friday's event is from 5:00 p.m. - 8 p.m. and it will also serve as the beginning of the campaign with the American Red Cross in Minnesota. Bent Paddle is located at 1832 W. Michigan Street in Duluth.

I speak from experience when I say that the Bent Paddle Cookie Christmas Cream Ale is very good, especially in during the holiday season. According to Bent Paddle, the brew features notes of vanilla, almond & cardamom. It also features a Cream Ale malt profile, which makes it a little sweet and the perfect pairing for all the Christmas cookies you'll likely be consuming.

Christmas Cookie Cream Ale is only available for a limited time, in Crowlers or Growlers, with a portion of sales going to Bentleyville. Bentleyville will be open for the 2021 season each evening from November 20 through December 27.

The Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign with the American Red Cross is another fantastic thing you can do through Bent Paddle during the holiday season. The public is invited to sign cards to thank and recognize members of the military, veterans and their families.

Working through the American Red Cross, Bent Paddle will make sure these cards get into the hands of local members of our military.
