great lakes brewing company

While my family was in town we made sure we had time to visit the important landmarks of Cleveland.
It's pretty much our pride and joy.  You might think your town has the best brewery, but you'd be wrong.
People literally line up outside the doors to get Christmas Ale when it's released.
It's that glorious.

So since us Clevelanders hadn't been on the official brewery tour, we headed down there to watch the famous brew being made.

To make a long story short, you take grain, hops, water and yeast, mix them together and move them from vat to vat.
Very exciting.

Luckily there was also free beer tasting.

And tons of historical brew-related items to peruse.

Vintage brew.
I love that the middle one just says 'beer.'  Straight to the point.

I literally just heard about this elusive Christmas Ale! I would love to try it but I'm not sure they sell it out here in DC. Looks like you had fun!

Great photos! I've never been to a brewery before, even though we have one not too far away. This is motivating me to visit it soon!
