Victory Winter Cask Ale Festival No Comments »

Victory photo
Following a very successful cask-conditioned ale celebration this past summer, the Victory has decided to hold a second Cask Ale festival on January 31st 2009, from noon to seven.

The Victory will be serving twelve casks – all brewed by Ontario microbreweries. The focus will be on Winter ales. Participating beers and breweries have not yet been announced, but I have heard some rumours about some pretty nifty brews underway… has anyone else heard anything?…

I guess we’ll have to attend the festival to find out.
What a great way to beat the winter blahs!

OCB Discovery Pack 1 Comment »


 Lisa our OCB marketing manager wizard! phoned me and asked if I would help out and go up to Owen Sound LCBO. They had just recieved their first delivery of the OCB Discovery Pack #2. The staff (thanks to Randy the manager) also got to try the beer out in a tutored tasting with lunch, presented by yours truely. They loved the beer and were interested in hearing all about some of the OCB breweries and their beers, that they hadn’t heard of before.

We had a great time. The Owen Sound “A team” are true converts to OCB beer. (other than the ones who didn’t like beer, but they all loved the Nicklebrook Green Apple Pilsner)

Away to go guy’s. Keep on selling the beer!

Hops For Hunger 1 Comment »

Great Lakes is proud to partner with the Toronto Daily Bread Food Bank to help those in need. From December 1-22, only at our retail store, we’ll donate a portion of the weight of your beer purchase in food.

For example, buy a bottle of Winter Ale and we’ll donate 1.5 lbs of food.

The heavier your purchase, the more food we donate. It’s as easy as that.

Help us reach our goal of 2000 pounds!
