Bent Paddle Brewing Company has once again brewed their Christmas Cookie Cream Ale to celebrate and support Bentleyville Tour of Lights. With every purchase of the specially priced To-Go Crowler or Growler from the taproom, Bent Paddle will donate $5 to support this annual family-friendly event.

Beginning November 21 and running through December 27, Bentleyville Tour of Lights will once again shine bright on the shores of Lake Superior. Guests can take in the 4 million lights from the comfort of their vehicles with a COVID-19 prevention-friendly, drive-thru format. Santa, Mrs. Claus, their reindeer and some of their friends, will be on-site to greet attendees and gift new knit hats to children 10 and under.

Christmas Cookie Cream Ale was one of the most popular taproom offerings in 2019, with a light 5 percent ABV Classic Cream Ale infused with the delightful flavors of Christmas cookies—vanilla, almond and cardamom. The flavors are inspired by Sally Anderson-Caron, the Swedish spritz cookie-making mother of Pilot Brewer, Neil Caron.

The beer is also exclusively on tap at Bentleyville sponsors: Grandma’s Canal ParkGrandma’s Miller Hill, and Little Angie’s Cantina; and the Bentleyville Gift Shop within Grandma’s Sports Garden and Bent Paddle Brewing Co. Taproom.

Costs: $17 each for To-Go Crowler and $21 each for Growler. Each sale includes a free, exclusive, embroidered Bent Paddle/Bentleyville Christmas tree ornament. For more information, visit or
