GLBC Introduces Signature BBQ Sauces

Apr. 22, 2016 – Cleveland, OH – Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC) announces an exciting beer-infused venture: the release of two new signature BBQ sauces. Edmund Fitzgerald Porter BBQ Sauce and Dortmunder Gold Lager BBQ Sauce will be released this May, just in time for grill season.

Both all natural products made in Ohio, GLBC’s BBQ sauces are proprietary recipes inspired by the beer-infused sauces and dressings created daily at GLBC’s Cleveland brewpub.

Edmund Fitzgerald Porter BBQ Sauce, a signature at the GLBC brewpub, is spicy with roasted pepper flavors and a hot and sweet finish. The newly developed Dortmunder Gold Lager BBQ Sauce is mild and sweet with tangy tomato and subtle hickory smoke flavors.

GLBC Retail Operations Manager Jeff West says, “As part of our commitment to zero waste, we’ve used low-fill beers to create sauces and dressings for decades. We’re excited to bring a part of our pub’s tradition to even more of our customers.” The product launch will be celebrated at the Great Lakes brewpub with a special BBQ-themed menu featuring both of the signature sauces, and highlighting vendors from the historic West Side Market.

Edmund Fitzgerald Porter BBQ Sauce and Dortmunder Gold Lager BBQ Sauce will be available for purchase in 20 oz. bottles at the GLBC gift shop and at select Ohio retailers beginning May 4.


To celebrate our new line of BBQ sauces, we're throwing an all day BBQ celebration at our brewpub. Stop in as our grill masters fire up our brewpub menu with all-day BBQ specials like grilled BBQ chicken wings, ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, and other BBQ favorites worthy of more than just one wet nap.

Throw your name into our month long raffle for BBQ summer prize packages including one grand prize GLBC grill!

Our gift shop will be open so you can be one of the first to bring home these tasty sauces to your own backyard celebration.
