GLBC to Release 25th Anniversary Silver & Gold IPL

Posted May 31, 2013

May 31, 2013—CLEVELAND, OHIO—Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC) will commemorate 25 years of exceptional beer with Silver & Gold IPL, a brand new India-Style Pale Lager brewed with Dortmunder Gold Lager yeast. The limited-edition beer represents 25 years of brewing history and innovation.

Name Origin: Our silver anniversary isn’t about gold medals. It’s not about accolades or awards. It’s about 25 years of passion and heart. Silver & Gold IPL represents our past and our present, from the early Dortmunder Gold days to our growing family of beers. Silver & Gold is for our neighbors who’ve shared pints and stories with us in the Taproom, for our fans who’ve challenged us to be exceptional from day one, and for us—a bottled reminder of how far we’ve come.

Flavor: Crisp and clean with a pronounced hop presence providing a floral, piney finish

Availability: Silver & Gold IPL will debut on tap in the GLBC Brewpub and in 4-Packs in the GLBC Gift Shop on Friday, June 21st at 5PM. On June 21st, the Brewpub will offer a keep-the-glass special. Order a Silver & Gold IPL and ask to keep the glass, and we'll fill the official 25th anniversary stemmed glass for you to take home.

Silver & Gold IPL will be available in both draft and 4-Packs throughout GLBC’s distribution region starting June 24th.

Packaging: 4-Pack, Draft

GLBC’s official 25th anniversary is September 6, 2013. On that day, the Brewery will host a neighborhood block party featuring live local music, a photo booth, fresh food and merchandise from Ohio City’s artisan vendors, plus Cleveland sports mascots and other family-friendly activities. This event is open to the public. For more information, visit
