– Ontario’s 2016 Brewery of the Year Becomes Official Beer of Toronto Rock –
Toronto, ON (January 13, 2017) – It’s official. Two of Canada’s national pastimes have collided just in time for the year-long 30th anniversary celebrations at Great Lakes Brewery (GLB).
GLB and Toronto Rock are pleased to announce that they have entered into a sponsorship agreement for the 2017 National Lacrosse League (NLL) season. The sponsorship will see GLB as the official beer partner of the Toronto Rock and Canuck Pale Ale as the official beer of the six time NLL championship team.
“We are extremely excited to work with the Toronto Rock and support Toronto’s championship team,” said Peter Bulut, Owner and Chief Brewing Officer at GLB. “With lacrosse being Canada’s national sport, and our Canuck Pale Ale emulating Canada’s blossoming craft brewing industry, this is a great fit for our independent company.”
To celebrate each Toronto Rock home game, tallboy cans of Canuck Pale Ale, a multi-award winning west coast style pale ale, will be available at Jack Astor’s Bar and Grill (St. Lawrence Market) for the official post-game party.
