Ohio's first brewpub and microbrewery opened it's doors in 1988 and introduced Cleveland to a world of full bodied, craft beers.
Great Lakes Brewing Co. has become well-known for brews like the award winning Eliot Ness Amber Lager, and Dortmunder Gold, which was the brewery's first beer and their best seller.
Great Lakes is also well known for a number of seasonal beers. They first introduced their Christmas Ale in 1992, and although it is only produced for eight weeks during the winter months, it is the company's second biggest seller.
You can find Great Lakes beers in the Cleveland area, throughout Ohio, and in parts of Michigan, Minnesota, Indiana, Wisconsin, Kentucky, North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C.
