Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC) announced an exciting beer-infused venture: the release of two new signature BBQ sauces. Edmund Fitzgerald Porter BBQ Sauce and Dortmunder Gold Lager BBQ Sauce will be released this May, just in time for grill season.
Both all natural products made in Ohio, GLBC’s BBQ sauces are proprietary recipes inspired by the beer-infused sauces and dressings created daily at GLBC’s Cleveland brewpub.
Edmund Fitzgerald Porter BBQ Sauce, a signature at the GLBC brewpub, is spicy with roasted pepper flavors and a hot and sweet finish. The newly developed Dortmunder Gold Lager BBQ Sauce is mild and sweet with tangy tomato and subtle hickory smoke flavors.
GLBC Retail Operations Manager Jeff West says, “As part of our commitment to zero waste, we’ve used low-fill beers to create sauces and dressings for decades. We’re excited to bring a part of our pub’s tradition to even more of our customers.” The product launch will be celebrated at the Great Lakes brewpub with a special BBQ-themed menu featuring both of the signature sauces, and highlighting vendors from the historic West Side Market.
Edmund Fitzgerald Porter BBQ Sauce and Dortmunder Gold Lager BBQ Sauce will be available for purchase in 20 oz. bottles at the GLBC gift shop and at select Ohio retailers beginning May 4.
