The 60-minute documentary – Thirty Years of Great Lakes Beer: The Journey of Great Lakes Brewery – explores the seldom told history of GLB – from the tiny startup in 1987 in a Brampton strip mall to the mid 1990’s when the brewery almost closed their doors for good, to being crowned the Canadian Brewery of the Year back to back in 2013 and 2014.

Created in partnership with David Hodge at Eizo Quest Inc., a local Etobicoke film studio, Thirty Years of Great Lakes Beer: The Journey of Great Lakes Brewery contains in-depth interviews with Peter Bulut (Owner & President), Bruce Cornish (Original Co-Founder), Mike Lackey (Brewery Operations Manager), David Bieman (Sales Manager & Branding) and Troy Burtch (Marketing and Communications Manager). Staff, friends, family, and amazing supporters share their most intimate stories while taking viewers behind the scenes.

“Man, thirty years, who’d believe it,” says Peter Bulut. “This documentary sheds some great insight into the history of GLB – the very interesting, challenging, rewarding, delicious history of GLB. The talented David Hodge of Eizo Quest Inc.​, a proud Etobicoke business owner and friend, did a wonderful job capturing the essence of our existence,” Bulut said.

The documentary takes viewers through various chapters of GLB history, telling the story about how Peter Bulut Sr. saved a struggling brewery, the birth of Canuck Pale Ale, the creation of the Tank Ten series of beers, exposes favourite moments, explains how they create certain beer names and styles and highlights the trials and tribulations of over thirty years in the craft beer business. It also showcases a dizzying number of archival images from multiple GLB collections, features original music from Snoqualmie and champions the artwork of Fabian Skidmore.
