Last year we put a call out to see which GLB supporter was hardcore enough to get inked with one of our characters. We received many submissions -  from individuals all across Ontario - who told us why they would permanently get their body tattooed and what brand personality they would choose. The submissions were amazing. It was a tough call and at the end of the day we settled on Nicolas Cole, a local Toronto...

ROCK THE DAD BODY THIS FATHER'S DAY!  Morty Jenkinson is our kind of guy. A family man. A craft beer drinker. A fan of hot dogs and drinking from the garden hose. A man who has built a temple; a temple in which he can confidently rest his can of beer while reaching, with both arms, for the mustard...

We pray, with all eight arms, that you've noticed Octopus Wants to Fight IPA on your local LCBO store shelves, on tap at your favourite local establishment and trust that cans are making a home in your home. The 2018 release of our angry friend is off and running and is frankly going, well, swimmingly. Based on the success of last years Octopus Wants to Fight photo contest, we'd like to do it all again in 2018. So, let's see...

RoboHop Imperial IPA is back. Yes, it's true. Our bracingly bitter and bulbous shaped little buddy is back in the GLB retail fridges and now starting to make appearances at LCBO locations across Ontario. To celebrate the return of RoboHop, a beer so aromatic, so flavourful, so beautiful...

Crack open those fresh cans or bottles of GLB, polish those GLB glasses, pour beer into the glass and drink - what a novel idea! Take a picture of that beautiful lacing, post on Instagram and become beer famous! The #FreshGLBlacing contest returns. We love seeing lacing on any of the multiple GLB glasses we stock, and last years contest received so many amazing entries, so we decided another go at it would be a great way to kick off...

Hey GLB Supporters, Alistair Thain here, GLB's Internal Events & Experiences Manager. I hope you all had a great Holiday season and the start of your 2018 has been absolutely splendid! GLB is just coming off celebrating our 30th Anniversary and we have been looking at ways to reward our supporters throughout the upcoming year. We have decided to host a wee beer and cheese pairing, an education experience that falls under the very inventive name, GLB Taste &...

On Tuesday December 12th, Nik Cole, an amazing GLB supporter, got inked. What makes this tattoo so special was that it features Roland Baggetts of Lake Effect IPA fame. GLB recently ran a contest to see which craft beer drinker would pledge their body to GLB art and Nik won! The tattoo was done by the talented Michael Di Bastiano, Owner of Wolves Throne Tattoo here in Etobicoke. Visit our Facebook page to see step by step...

To say that Great Lakes Brewery is excited about the upcoming Canada Day long weekend is an understatement. This is our favourite time of year. The time for cottaging, for backyard get-togethers, ribfests, for getting outside and experiencing the vast beauty that this land has to offer...

We hope to god that you've noticed Octopus Wants to Fight IPA on your local LCBO store shelves. We're doing our best to keep up with the demand and frankly, we're having tons of fun doing so. One of the questions we get asked most around here is how do we come up with the names of some of the beers. It's a good question. Many people think we sit around in an office filled with marketers....

From June 13th to June 27th, we ran a fun photo contest with our newest summer seasonal, Sunnyside Session IPA. We asked people to email us their best pictures featuring Sunnyside. We asked people to post their best pictures featuring Sunnyside on various social media channels and tag the image with the #SunnysideSessionIPA hash tag. And many many people did just that. The team here at GLB was blown away by the response to the contest. We had...
