We’ve long admired Great Lakes Brewing Company. Since they were established in 1988, they’ve brewed exceptional beers and done it while emphasizing the importance of operating in an environmentally and socially conscious manner. Needless to say, when the opportunity arose to travel to Cleveland to collaborate on an all-new beer, we jumped at the chance. Brian and Mikey got to work with the Great Lakes brewers and their 7 bbl pub system to brew a truly unique Baltic Porter recipe that incorporates molasses and Great Lakes’ proprietary lager yeast.
Want to know what it tastes like? We were only able to produce a couple dozen kegs, and only about half made it here to Minnesota. Our taproom doesn’t even get one, so you’ll have to join us at one of our release events if you want to try it. If you were quick enough to get tickets for tonight’s Happy Gnome Beer Dinner or Saturday’s Beer Dabbler, you’ll get a chance at it this week. Next week, we’ll be at Bryant Lake Bowlto tap a keg on Tuesday, January 29th. We’ll have a few more release events in the upcoming weeks, so be sure to check for updates on Facebook and Twitter.
