Great Lakes Releases Alternative Facts English Mild Ale

TORONTO, ONGreat Lakes Brewery has announced details of the first in a series of special collaborative beers that are set to be released throughout 2017 to mark the brewery’s 30th anniversary.

Alternative Facts English Mild Ale is a 3.8% abv ale with cocoa nibs that was brewed in early February on GLB’s recently installed 7-barrel pilot system.

A number of local beer bloggers and writers were on hand for the brew day, with their participation including “mashing in, tasting beers in the aging tanks, touring the brewery, measuring hops and cocoa nibs, and doing interviews for a 30th anniversary GLB documentary,” and their role as beer media representatives inspiring the beer’s tongue-in-cheek name.

Alternative Facts was released this past Saturday February 25th in the Great Lakes retail store, where it will be available in 650 ml bottles while supplies last.
