We hit a milestone on February 12, 2017 as we turned 30, making us one of the oldest independent craft breweries in Canada. We did a lot of things to celebrate. Tap takeovers, release over 105 different beers, introduced new brands, new glassware, new ideas and we documented it all!
Thirty Years of Great Lakes Beer: The Journey of Great Lakes Brewery explores the seldom told history of GLB – from the tiny startup in 1987 in a Brampton strip mall to the mid 1990’s when the brewery almost closed their doors for good, to being crowned the Canadian Brewery of the Year back to back in 2013 & 2014.
Interviews with Peter Bulut (Owner & President), Bruce Cornish (Original Co-Founder), Mike Lackey (Brewery Operations Manager), David Bieman (Sales Manager & Branding), Troy Burtch (Marketing and Communications Manager), friends, family and amazing supporters, take you behind the GLB scenes to share their most intimate stories of our colourful brewery.
