Three years ago, Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC) made the leap and began canning various beers, including seasonal favorite Rally Drum Red Ale and an earlier offering, Turntable Pils. Starting in 2020, the brewery moved their flagship beer, Dortmunder Gold Lager, to cans, as well as their Great Lakes IPA.

Not many people have had a more storied history in Colorado craft beer as Marty Jones. He’s the brains behind such iconic slogans as Great Divide’s “Great Minds Drink Alike”, Oskar Blues’ “Canned Beer Apocalypse” and New Belgium’s “Contents Under Pleasure”. Along that same vein, Marty was also one of the early pioneers advocating for the practice of canning craft beer both at Oskar Blues and later at Wynkoop Brewing.

Here at Porchdrinking, Pipeworks Brewing has been mentioned numerous times over the past couple years. But somehow, showcasing a Pipeworks beer has yet to happen. Granted, they’re known for their smaller batch, one-and-done beers that would sell out quickly.
