Responsible Purchasing

Great Lakes Brewing Company engages in economic, social, and environment practices that achieve a sustainable yet profitable business. We aim to be a thoughful and diligent role model in our industry and for our community. Whenever possible, we seek partners who share our values and our commitment to quality.

 

 
ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION
which we define as the maximum amount of use from the minimum amount of resources. We value frugality in the use of resources and energy, the usage of renewable resources, the reduction of waste throughout the supply chain, and advocacy for environmental change
 
HUMAN RIGHTS
which we define as justifiable rights that are believed to belong to every person. We value companies that are transparent in their workplace practices and commit to consistent improvements in employee welfare including safety and fair wages.
 
LOCAL SOURCING AND COMMUNITY BUILDING
which we define as a preference to source goods and services that are manufactured and distributed locally; when purchased from distant sources, we look for companies invested in building and maintaining their communities.

GIFT SHOP

We want our gift shop to be more than just branded pint glasses and t-shirts (but yeah, we do carry those things). Visit our onsite store to find an assortment of responsibly sourced, thoughtfully designed souvenirs sporting the GLBC logo, alongside artisanal items handmade by local vendors like bike bags made from our used malt bags, soap made from low-fill beer, and small-batch jellies infused with our beer. Our gift shop also features a cooler fully stocked with our year-round and seasonal beers in bottles and kegs. Or, purchase a growler in the gift shop and have it filled with your favorite pub exclusive beer.
