DBTB Episode 126: Tradition and Trends with Great Lakes Brewing Co.

Show notes from host John Holl:

“When you think about Great Lakes Brewing, Edmund Fitzgerald Porter likely comes to mind. It’s the flagship beer of a brewery that has helped shape craft beer in America and fostered the career of many in the industry. There’s more to the Cleveland, Ohio than that one flagship and the brewery has been working to adapt to changing palates and trends. 
For insight on what’s been happening at the brewery and what is on the horizon, I’m joined this week by Mark Hunger the brewmaster And Michael Williams, the brand coordinator who works in the brewery’s marketing department. 
We’re talking about history and the future, recipe development, flavors, and shifting consumer tastes. I start off by asking Mark, who has been around since almost the beginning, about his title and how to came about.”
