+1 on the porter, it is my favorite craft brew. I have an Edmund Fitzgerald clone that is in the keezer carbonating as I type. I will probably draw my first mug tomorrow.

I had the Great Lakes Dortmunder a few months ago for the first time. I was extremely impressed. I wish I could get it around here. It's a rarely brewed style, but Great Lakes certainly did it right.

I'm currently sipping a Commodore Perry IPA from Great Lakes Brewing, and it is a damn tasty brew. Plus I love the slogan for it: "Don't give up the sip!"
Really, I've yet to be disappointed by anything I've had from Great Lakes Brewing. I have a pipe dream of a grand road trip circling the great lakes and hitting all the breweries. There's a lot of good ones, even just around Lake Superior. El Niño IPA from Fitger's Brewhouse is one of my all-time favorites. I never go up the north shore without getting a growler or two from them.

Dortmunder Gold is the beer that got me hooked on "Good Beer". Their Holy Moses is a great seasonal wit, I'm hoping to try their Lake Erie Monster soon.

It's one of the best examples of a Dortmunder available. It is even listed as an example in the BJCP guidelines. I have a pretty close recipe I should post. Will try and do that this weekend.

Just had a Dortmunder last night with my friend from Czech! First time I've had that style, it was quite nice.
