As one of Ohio's largest and oldest craft breweries with a family of approximately 240 employee-owners, we feel we have a responsibility to continue striving for true diversity and inclusivity, and inspiring others to do the same. That's why we are thrilled to announce that Great Lakes Brewing Co. is a recipient of the inaugural Diversity and Inclusion Event Grant from the Brewers Association. Our vision? To create and host a diversity and inclusion-focused employment fair and networking event that is welcoming, fun, and meaningful for our industry colleagues and those who are interested in learning more about working in craft beer. We hope our event will serve as a forum for listening, learning, and "tapping opportunity."

With participation from our colleagues in the industry and support from community partners and the Brewers Association, we are excited for the chance to show interested individuals the many opportunities and career paths available in craft beer. We hope our Tapping Opportunity Event will serve as a welcoming space for underrepresented groups in craft beer. We appreciate the Brewers Association's leadership and commitment to diversifying this industry we love, and we are excited to join them in this important work.

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.
