Great Lakes Brewing Co. Adds Hazecraft IPA to Year-Round Lineup

CLEVELAND— Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC) announces the release of Hazecraft IPA, a new Hazy IPA joining the brewery’s year-round portfolio in 6-Pack 12 oz. Cans and 16 oz. Cans beginning August 31.

Engineered on GLBC’s 2-barrel pilot system, Hazecraft IPA is a smooth-drinking Hazy IPA brewed with a blend of Azacca, Lemondrop, and Simcoe hops for loads of juicy and tropical aromas. Hazecraft IPA’s label, designed by artist Sam Hadley, features a cloudy, melon-hued retro space scene.

Hazecraft IPA joins GLBC’s hop-forward year-round offerings Great Lakes IPA, Commodore Perry IPA, Burning River Pale Ale, and award-winning classics Dortmunder Gold Lager and Edmund Fitzgerald Porter. Hazecraft IPA is GLBC’s first year-round beer to be offered exclusively in cans.

About Hazecraft IPA

Perhaps inspired by Ohio’s surprisingly deep roster of trailblazing astronauts, our brewers launched Hazecraft IPA on our 2-barrel Pilot System. Their bold quest for an infinitely tasty Hazy IPA led them to discover the perfectly vibrant constellation of Simcoe, Azacca, and Lemondrop hops. That’s one giant leap for your palate!
