February 10, 2011—CLEVELAND, OHIO—Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC), Ohio’s most celebrated craft brewer of award-winning lagers and ales, ranked #22 out of 25 “Top Brewers” in the latest issue of BeerAdvocate, a respected monthly magazine dedicated entirely to beer. BeerAdvocate reviewed hundreds of thousands of customer beer reviews for their annual “Best of” issue, which is now on shelves.

In the same issue, Dortmunder Gold Lager, a balanced golden lager, and Eliot Ness Amber Lager, a rich, malty amber lager, commandeered the #2 and #3 spots in the magazine’s “Top ‘Lighter’ Lagers” list. These honors come on the heels of recent World Beer Championship gold medals in which Eliot Ness scored 93 Exceptional Points in its category “Amber Lager” and Dortmunder Gold scored 92 Exceptional Points in its category “Dortmunder”.
