If you’re a craft beer lover looking to support local Toronto businesses, then you will love Great Lakes Brewery. GLB is located in Etobicoke and has been a staple in the community for many years. This award-winning brewery is known for producing high-quality beers in a wide range of styles, from classic ales and lagers to more innovative and unique brews like the limited edition Rosie beer:
Great Lakes Brewery actively participates in the community by supporting local organizations and causes. Every year they collaborate with the Shining Through Centre for Children with Autism to produce the Shining Through NE Pale Ale. All proceeds from the sale of this beer go directly to assist with the cost of providing life-enhancing ABA therapy programs for children and youths with autism; programs that have been profoundly defunded by Doug Ford’s government.
By buying beer from GLB, you can feel good knowing that you’re supporting a business that cares about its community. It’s a lovely place to visit especially in the summertime, where you can enjoy a beer on the patio.
The recently opened GLB Brewpub in downtown Toronto offers a tasty and locally sourced menu paired of course with a seasonal selection of their delicious beers.
Both open daily at 11am. Great Lakes Brewery: 30 Queen Elizabeth Blvd., Etobicoke. GLB Brewpub: 11 Lower Jarvis Street, Toronto.
