Posted Sunday, November 4th, 2012 by Tip Top

Great Lakes LogoCLEVELAND, OHIO—Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC) will add two new members to their exceptional family of beers in 2013. Alchemy Hour Double IPA and Rye of the Tiger IPA will satisfy hopheads and adventurous craft beer enthusiasts with bold but balanced flavor profiles.

Name Origin: On the West Coast, surfers have a term for that perfect time of day, when the waves are breaking just right and it feels like you can ride forever. They call it Alchemy Hour.
