Family of Beers Spotlight: The Noble Do-Gooder

Posted March 3, 2011 By GLBeer Snob

Great Lakes Brewing Company takes great pride in our exceptional family of fresh beers. Each of our beers is the freshest, highest-quality, preservative-free beer we can brew and each has a story. Throughout March and April, we encourage you to get to know the "noble do-gooder" of the family:  Eliot Ness Amber Lager.

Eliot Ness’ rich fragrant malt flavors and crisp noble hops are considered “untouchable”, much like Cleveland’s most famous Safety Director, Eliot Ness. Ness is well known for leading the law enforcement group, “The Untouchables”, during Prohibition and played a key role in bringing down mob gangster, Al Capone.  Ness came to Cleveland in 1935 as the city’s Safety Director; he later (unsuccessfully) ran for mayor in 1947. While in Cleveland, Margaret Conway (the mother of GLBC’s co-owners, Patrick and Daniel Conway), was employed by Ness as his stenographer.

When visiting the GLBC Brewpub, ask the bartender to show you the bullet holes in our 1860s Tiger Mahogany bar said to have come from Ness himself. Or learn all about the life of Eliot Ness at next month’s lecture series, Names Behind the Brews, with guest speakers Rebecca McFarland and James Jessen Badal. RSVP online now!

Eliot Ness’ flavors pair wonderfully with smoked and barbecued meats, spicy/Cajun dishes and hearty breads. To spotlight our Eliot Ness, GLBC is offering the following specials during the months of March and April:
-$3 Eliot Ness pints all day with periodic "Eliot Ness" food specials  
-A 15% off coupon good for all Eliot Ness merchandise in the onsite Gift Shop (excludes sale items)
-Purchase a "Family of Beers" T-Shirt in the onsite Gift Shop and receive a complimentary collectible coaster pack

Specials are subject to change without notice.  Merchandise offers only valid in GLBC's onsite Gift Shop (not available online).
