Brewery Profile: Great Lakes Beer
Great Lakes is Toronto’s oldest craft brewery and has a wide range of beers. They were the second stop an a recent outing with Craft Brewery Tours in Ontario that was organised by the Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance.
After a tour of the brewing facilities, Brewmaster Adrian Popowycz and Chief Brewing Officer Peter Bulet took us through the lineup of GLB beers. The ones available for sampling on tap at the brewery range from the Golden Horseshoe to the Crazy Canuck Pale Ale. I’ll let the guys speak for themselves in the video but will also mention that the retail outlet is worth a visit for the selection of one-off beers and is open Monday to Saturday from 10 to 6.
Peter also touched on Project X that is an event for beer enthusiasts which features food paired with one-off beer.
