Who Won Summer?

Posted August 8, 2014 By Marissa DeSantis

I felt like I lived vicariously through you this summer, reader. That photo you posted of our Commodore Perry IPA resting at the bow of your rowboat on a still lake? Idyllic. The mutt stealing a sip from your bottle of Burning River at the backyard cookout? Adorable. A group of happy hands raising bottles of Dortmunder toward the skyline from a rooftop patio? That’s what summer’s all about.

You absolutely wowed us with your Great Lakes Great Summer photo submissions. Our panel of judges decided that they want to be your friends, so they can join in on your incredible summer adventures. (Seriously, let’s get together on your boat—we’ll bring the beers.)

Throughout the promotion, we awarded weekly prizes of t-shirts, disc flyers, and more to the shots we felt truly captured a great summer with Great Lakes. We were excited to see entries from all over our distribution map, and even more excited by the folks who traveled even further with our beer. If you took our beer on vacation this summer, thanks. And if you cracked one open on your staycation, thanks.


We’re so excited to announce the winners of our program. Click through the gallery to the right to check them out. You can see all of the incredible photos we received at

Each of our six grand prize winners received one of our six summer adventure prize packages. Each prize was locally and responsibly sourced, and branded with GLBC logos. They’re one-of-a-kind items, and it’s our hope that they’ll bring even more great summer memories to our winners.

Not picked as a winner this time around? Never fear! Keep checking all year long for special promotions and contests.


We know that a few of you might object to drinking Oktoberfest while outdoor pools are still open, so we’ll let you decide when you want to tap into your first of the season. But do save the date for our September 5 Block Party!
