The care that goes into our beer resonates from our commitment to the community and environment, which we refer to as the triple bottom line - to engage in economic, social and environmental practices that achieve a sustainable, yet profitable, business. These Include: Changing natural resource use from take, make, waste to take, make, remake; Implementing efficient energy practices; Investing in our community through non-profit organizations; Supporting sustainable urban renewal projects. The three waves in our company logo not only reflect our triple bottom line philosophy, they represent our concerted effort to the respectful use of our beer's most valuable ingredient - water.

In memory of Eliot Ness and his paddy wagon of guilty criminals, we have the fatty wagon (minus the criminals). Our eco-friendly fatty wagon and beer delivery truck both run on straight vegetable oil (SVO), which results in lower toxic emissions and a 25% savings over the cost of regular diesel fuel.

Named after the one-time Cleveland Safety Director who frequented the original bar that is now the Great Lakes Brewpub, our deep amber lager has a faint hop nose and a slightly sweet finish. In keeping with the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516, this beer is traditionally brewed from all natural ingredients: barley, hops, yeast and water. No chemicals or preservatives are used. 6.2% alc/vol.
