COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Jingle Balls is a spiced winter ale brewed with freshly juiced ginger, fresh ground nutmeg and fresh cinnamon sticks. This beer was made to help you through the frigid Chicago winters as well as the holiday family fun, because weve all woken up after a night of drinking like our good friend Marcus the Reindeer.
