Crazy formatting[edit]

So does anyone know exactly what happened to this page? It's a mess to read. Ours18 (talk) 22:23, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Looking at the history, it seems to have happened between the last edit on Dec 10th and the first edit on Dec 11th. Unfortunately, I don't know enough about the formatting to know how to fix the problem. Paulbkirk (talk) 13:46, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Also, I believe the phrase "this organization is growing" may be referring to the entry on the E4S organization, and not GLBC. The phrase doesn't make sense with reference to the GLBC. Budperry (talk) 18:31, 22 February 2010 (UTC)Budperry

Barley wine[edit]

They also serve barley wine at the brewpub; this should be mentioned. Badagnani (talk) 07:11, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

They have dozens of pub-exclusives. I think it would be overkill to list them all here (as they are easily accessed from the company's website).--Chimino (talk) 20:59, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Sources?[edit]

This page relies heavily on the Great Lakes Brewing Company website. I think this is problematic. Personally, I love this brewery and think it brews some of the best beers in the world. But we really need to get better sources here. This brewery has been extensively studied--I am even finding some scholarly articles studying it, and plenty of news sources: [1]. When we can source individual beer reviews from newspapers like the Chicago Tribune, we have no need to rely exclusively on the company's website. Cazort (talk)

I think referencing the GLBC website for the beers themselves is fine, but agree other information (i.e. history) can be cited from other sources. I'll see what I can find.--Chimino (talk) 21:08, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

I am not sure how to go about sourcing this, but the line about Christmas Ale being mostly available in the Cleveland area is somewhat inaccurate. GLBC seasonal beers are regularly available in Pittsburgh-area scores. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Doug Keklak (talkcontribs) 15:48, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

It's dated info. At the time of the article's composition, Christmas Ale was still mainly a Northeast Ohio thing. It's now available wherever GLBC does distribution outside of Ohio as well (e.g. Chicago, NYC, Pittsburgh). I'll work on it. 23:11, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
