I miss Great Lakes Brewing. I'm going back to Cleveland in July, there will be many a dortmunder golds consumed.

Their Burning River is one of my go to beers. Dortmunder is actually my least favorite, but maybe because it is such a standard in NE Ohio that I just take it for granted. Every bar has that on tap. You could spend weeks in and around Cleveland at various breweries and beer bars and not be disappointed.

+1 on Christmas Ale. Loved it.

I grew up drinking BBK Export in Germany. I brewed one as my first lager this year. Bottled it yesterday. Can't wait to start drinking it next month.

I tend to think of Export as being a darker version of a Pilsner with harder water. I've always been surprised that it's not more popular drink in the US.

The only Great Lakes beer I've had is Eliot Ness, and its my absolute favorite lager. I could drink that stuff all day long.

+1 on their labels. I've never had as many problems getting a label off as I did with these Commodore Perry bottles. Soaked for hours and they still didn't come clean...

Really??!! I have a buddy that drinks Commodore Perry almost exclusively. I take all his bottles, do an overnight soak in OxiClean Free and the labels are usually lying in the bottom of the bucket by morning.

Please do that. I agree, it's an awesome example of the style. That beer has fantastic character.

I enjoy their Nosferatu when it's out as well. A big, hoppy, malty ale, sorta between a barleywine and an imperial IPA. Think Arrogant Bastard but a more citrusy hop character.

Love the Edmund Fitzgerald from Great Lakes Brewing. I'd like to strangle the evil SOB that picked the label glue. Usually most labels come off with a hot soak in some soapy water...I had to break out the Oxyclean Free. It worked like a champ.

Good beer...evil labels

Oxyclean Free rocks!
