West Sixth's Christmas Ale is coming back

West Sixth Brewery is bringing back its seasonal Christmas Ale.

Last year, the Lexington brewery launched the canned beer in limited quantities and sold out in a little more than 24 hours.

This year, they've made more and will release it on draft and in six-packs at 4 p.m. Nov. 17 in the taproom on West Sixth Street. It also will be available at retailers around the state and in Cincinnati.

According to the brewers, the West Sixth Christmas Ale is a spiced ale with aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg, with a malt backbone. It is 9 percent alcohol by volume, or 18 proof. The retail price is $13.99 for a six-pack.
