Great Lakes does some amazing brews and I like Amber Lagers. I’m surprised I haven’t logged anything on Untappd about this before. I do believe I’ve had it and I do believe it was fantastic. At least, from what I remember. I was looking on Untappd about my rating (again, it was not there) and see that it’s rated 3.56 caps out of 5. That’s surprising to me because BeerAdvocate has it at 91 (Outstanding) with a 100 (World Class) from the Bros. There’s more people on Untappd, I believe. The Law of Averages and all that.
Great Lakes started out in Cleveland (the only reason I could think of going to Cleveland) in 1986 and grew their little-brewery-that-could into a major craft beer operation. My personal fave from them is the Edmund Fitzgerald, but I’m partial to the dark side. I like the Sith of beers, I guess. They have other great brews, too, like: Conway’s Irish Ale, their Christmas Ale and the Alberta Clipper Porter. Yum!
Have you tried this beer? If so how was it? If not or if you just want more of it, head to City Beverage and grab your sixer. Tell ’em it’s the beer of the week and get 5% off your order!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
