1990 Christmas Ales
The 1990 Christmas are make up of the Spice Ale, Ginger Ale, 251 Ale, and 199 Ale. One 6-pack each was bottled for the Spice and Ginger
Ales. The 251 Ale was made by mixing the Spice Beer (2.5 parts) with Ginger Beer (1 part). The 199 Ale was the mix of the remaining Spice
Ale (1 part) and Ginger Ale (about 99 parts).
Comment: The Ginger Ale was too strong with ginger, should have used less ginger root.
Comment: The 251 Ale was fantastic! Our favorite flavor of the mixes.
