In this first Podcast feature on Great Lakes Brewery, Mirella Amato of Beerology chats with brewery co-owner, Peter Bulut Jr, and brewmaster Adrian Popowycz. Peter shares the story of Great Lakes Brewery and how it has evolved since his father purchased the company in 1991. Adrian, who joined Great Lakes this year, talks about his experience taking over brewing duties at a brewery that makes such a wide range of experimental beers. He also describes the cookiest beer he’s brewed at Great Lakes so far …

Peter and Adrian then introduce the two beers that are featured in this month’s podcast: Great Lakes Red Leaf Lager and Winter Ale, telling us which food pairings they enjoy with these beers, in anticipation for the upcoming food pairing podcast with Chef Kantor.
