30th Anniversary Imperial Oyster Stout

You didn’t think we’d celebrate our 30th anniversary without a special release, did you? In honor of three decades of independent craft brewing, Great Lakes Brewing Co. is proud to share our 30th Anniversary Imperial Oyster Stout.

To celebrate our pearl anniversary we added fresh shucked oysters and cacao nibs to this special Imperial Stout, symbolizing the hard work and sweet memories we’ve shared over 30 years of independent, family-owned (and now employee-owned) craft brewing. 

To mark this storied occasion, the 30th Anniversary Imperial Oyster Stout will be presented in an elegant black matte 22 oz. bottle. Screenprinted on the surface in glossy black ink is a discoverable bathymetric map of Lake Erie (though we can’t promise you’ll find any oysters there).

The 30th Anniversary Imperial Oyster Stout will be available throughout the GLBC distribution footprint. Savor the rich, chocolaty flavors and subtle saltiness as you help us toast to the next 30 years. Learn more about this special release below…
