CLEVELAND—Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC), Ohio’s most celebrated craft brewer of award-winning lagers and ales, announces its plan to expand distribution throughout the state of Minnesota. On September 9, 2013, GLBC will enter St. Cloud with Bernick’s Beverages & Vending. GLBC currently serves Duluth and the Twin Cities region, and this rollout will help to extend distribution throughout the state. Deeper distribution in the state of Minnesota aligns with the company’s strategic growth plans.
Customers can expect to see GLBC’s Year-Round family of beers in package and draft, as well as the GLBC Taster’s Pack (a sampler 12-pack). The new market rollout will involve multiple customer appreciation events, meet-and-greets, tastings, and giveaways throughout the area.
Great Lakes Brewing Co. currently serves 13 states and Washington DC. Founded in 1988 by brothers Patrick and Daniel Conway as the first craft brewery in the state of Ohio, GLBC is nationally known for its exceptional family of beers including Dortmunder Gold Lager, Eliot Ness Amber Lager, Burning River Pale Ale, Commodore Perry India Pale Ale, and Edmund Fitzgerald Porter.
