January 11, 2012—CLEVELAND, OHIO—Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC),
Ohio’s most celebrated craft brewer of award-winning lagers and ales,
announces its plan to extend to central Pennsylvania (State College/Altoona/
Johnstown areas) with Frank B. Fuhrer Wholesale on February 1, 2012. GLBC
has distributed to the Pittsburgh and Erie markets, as well as Philadelphia,
for quite some time; increasing distribution deeper in the state aligns
with the company’s strategic growth plans. Customers can expect to
see GLBC’s year-round family of beers in package and draft, as well as the
new “Taster’s Pack” (a sampler 12-pack). The new market rollout will involve multiple customer appreciation events, meet-and-greets, tastings and giveaways throughout the area.
GLBC currently serves 12 states and Washington DC. Founded in 1988 by brothers Patrick and Daniel Conway as the first craft brewery in the state of Ohio, GLBC is nationally known for its exceptional family of beers including Dortmunder Gold Lager, Eliot Ness Amber Lager, Burning River Pale Ale, Commodore Perry India Pale Ale and Edmund Fitzgerald Porter.
