Great Lakes The Doppelrock

Great Lakes The Doppelrock

User Rating:

Taylor: Malt. Here is a substance complementary to mankind. It makes beer sweet. It gives yeast something to munch on. It represents an endowment of rich flavors and hues. While almost all beer requires malt of some kind, few styles rely on it as heavily as the Doppelbock (or double bock). Doppelbock is a German-originated […] ... [Read more]

Great Lakes Nosferatu

User Rating:

A+. I wanted you to know right up front what I thought of this beer. If I could give it ++ I would. But I digress. I sampled this brew at a beer festival. I jotted myself a note “got to get this”. That was months ago so when I picked up a four pack […] ... [Read more]

Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold

User Rating:

Great Lakes Brewing Company is solely responsible for my love of malty beer. I don’t know about the rest of you, but in my opinion Great Lakes gets its malts right: fresh, true-to-style, and absolutely consistent. Their Eliot Ness Vienna Lager is one of my all-time favorites. Enter another classic, historic beer bursting with malts […] ... [Read more]

Great Lakes Lake Erie Monster Imperial IPA

User Rating:

I’m back. While I’ve had several beers in the last three weeks since the birth of my beautiful baby girl, I haven’t had a spare minute to sit in front of the blank canvas of my computer screen and thoughtfully jot my impressions of a fine brewery creation. Coincidentally, between that last sentence and this, […] ... [Read more]

Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald

User Rating:

Noel: Coffee lovers rejoice…this beer’s for you. Although it’s not really hailed as a coffee flavored beer, Edmund Fitzgerald is a porter, and that’s about all you really need to know. The more porters I have, the more I realize that dark, roasted bitterness is really the epitome of the style. And this brew is […] ... [Read more]

Great Lakes Burning River Pale Ale

User Rating:

Michael: I’m not much of an environmentalist. I’m not saying that the glass bottle I just emptied isn’t going in the recycling bin. I’m not saying I throw candy bar wrappers out my car window or burn tires in my backyard. I’m just saying I’m not very, well, fanatical. However, if the Fox River spontaneously […] ... [Read more]

Great Lakes Eliot Ness Amber Lager

User Rating:

Eliot Ness was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1903, and would grow up to become one of the famed Prohibition-era lawmen. Under the Volstead Act, he was charged with bringing down Al Capone. Anyone who knows film knows Ness was the centerpiece of The Untouchables, a 1987 film starring Kevin Costner, Sean Connery, Robert De […] ... [Read more]

Great Lakes Conway’s Irish Ale

User Rating:

I have less than 20 minutes to write this review and get back to work (no pressure). One of best craft breweries that I stumbled upon two years ago was Great Lakes Brewing Co. Based out of Cleveland Ohio, they make an assortment of distributed beers which are, in my opinion, high caliber. Last Spring […] ... [Read more]
