Great Lakes Brewery’s Dortmunder Gold
Great Lakes opened their doors in September 1988 and signaled a new era in Cleveland brewing as the first microbrewery in Ohio. Original beers included the Heisman, a Dortmunder-style beer named for the famed football player (and future trophy) who lived around the corner from the brewery. It was immediately followed by Elliot Ness Amber Lager. Both were overnight successes; the Heisman was later renamed Dortmunder Gold for both its color and the Gold Medal it won at the 1990 Great American Beer Festival.
