Great Lakes Brewing Co., Toronto, ONT, Canada

Great Lakes Brewing Company bills itself as Toronto’s original craft brewery.  Great Lakes Brewing is a family owned company that was founded in 1987 and has won many awards.

On the day we visited we got to try several beers.  One they don’t mention on their website, which was exceptional, was their Miami Weiss (the correct German pronunciation is ‘vice’), a wheat beer.

Great Lakes Brewing has a line of beers that are available all year long, plus seasonals.  Many of these are award winners.

Some of their brews are available in cans, some in bottles, as well as on tap at local pubs.  Their tasting room is the store front where they sell their beers, t-shirts, logo glasses, etc.  They are very happy to have you try their beer, but unlike most tasting rooms we’ve been to, it is not a place to sit and relax with a beer.  They also participate in events like Toronto Beer Week.

You can learn more about Great Lakes Brewing at their website:  We had additional photos in our album.

Please note that there is another Great Lakes Brewing Co. located in Cleveland, OH.  They are not related.
