June 22, 2017 marks 48 years since the infamous fire on the Cuyahoga River. Beer is 90% water, and with 21% of the world's fresh water supply in our backyard, we at Great Lakes Brewing Co. are 100% committed to protecting, conserving, and restoring our waterways. Whether it's through our #BrewingGood initiatives or donating proceeds from the Great Lakes @burningriverfest to local non-profits, we are dedicated to brewing beer that will ignite your taste buds (and not our rivers). So today, we hope you'll raise a glass to remember who we were as a society, celebrate how far we've come, and toast to a brighter future for our waterways.
To mark the occasion, $1 from every Burning River Pale Ale pint sold in the brewpub on June 22 will be donated to the Burning River Foundation. The brewpub will also be offering a smoked beef brisket platter and smoked short rib burger specials, $6 Burning River crowlers, and 20% off Burning River merchandise in the Gift Shop. We hope to see you! Cheers!
