Traditionally, a winter warmer is a type of old ale brewed during the winter months. A BrigePort classic, Ebenezer Ale, was originally brewed in 1986 under the moniker, Winter Brew. When the time arrived for the first bottling in 1999, the brewery discovered that another beer already existed under that name. From a company-wide contest to rename the beer, the appellation Ebenezer Ale emerged as the winner. The label features a smiling, gift-bearing Mr. Scrooge and the exclamation "Whoop!" on the right scroll of ribbon, perhaps inspired by such quotes from Charles Dickens's "A Christmas Carol" as: "I am as giddy as a drunken man. A merry Christmas to everybody! A happy New Year to all the world! Hallo here! Whoop! Hallo!"
