Great Lakes Brewing Company Beer Dinner
August 21, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$60
Trattoria VILLAGIO is hosting a beer pairing dinner featuring Great Lakes Brewing Company.
Special guest speaker Lauren Nagy, Area Sales Manager with Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC), will walk you through tasting each beer, while helping our guests to identify the uniqueness and distinctive qualities in each glass.
Two Irish brothers with limited brewing experience. A city that shuttered its last production brewery in the early 80s. A neighborhood in serious need of a facelift. In 1986 when Patrick and Daniel Conway opened their fledgling operation in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood, the odds were stacked against them. Fortunately, they surrounded themselves with a staff of passionate, knowledgeable people, and from the start committed themselves to bringing a sophisticated, diverse selection of craft beer to their home state.
From the start, the brothers have been focused on sustainability, opting to renovate 19th century buildings to house their brewpub, and purchasing used restaurant equipment to stock their space. As GLBC expands, new businesses sprout, and Ohio City gradually evolves into a bustling place to work, play, and brew. In their first year, the team brewed less than 1,000 barrels of kegged beer, and hand-bottling didn’t even begin for another year. The first bottles were capped by hand, after being knocked on with a screwdriver to create foam and push out oxygen–thankfully, we’ve come a long way since those days! Two decades, multiple awards, and a whole lot of stories later, Pat and Dan Conway celebrate over two decades of brewing exceptional beer for their adventurous and discerning customers.
