We hope you’re hungry for knowledge and thirsty for beer, because class is back in session at Hop College: Pairing Food & Beer! Learn all about complementing your favorite dishes with the right beer style the Great Lakes way. In Pairing Food & Beer, Cicerone-certified GLBC staff will show you what makes a great beer and food pairing during a fun (and flavorful!) lesson. Joining us will be chef Dan Racco, who will lead a guided food tasting with one of his carefully crafted dishes. There won’t be any textbooks, but we will have plenty of beer samples and small bites from the brewpub to help enhance your learning.

Students who complete Food & Beer will leave with a special Hop College branded tulip glass (don’t know what that is? See you at the class!), and official beer nerd bragging rights. All students enrolled can enjoy 10% off a brewpub food order or gift shop purchase (valid for day of class only).

Graduate at the bottom of your glass at Hop College, where our taproom is your classroom!

Great Lakes Brewing Co.


Two Irish brothers with limited brewing experience. A city that shuttered its last production brewery in the early 80s. A neighborhood in serious need of a facelift. In 1986 when Patrick and Daniel Conway opened their fledgling operation in Cleveland's Ohio City neighborhood, the odds were stacked against them. Fortunately, they surrounded themselves with a staff of passionate, knowledgeable people, and from the start committed themselves to bringing a sophisticated, diverse selection of craft beer to their home state. Two decades, multiple awards, and a whole lot of stories later, Pat and Dan Conway celebrate over two decades of brewing exceptional beer for their adventurous and discerning customers.
