Welcome to a new web series called 'Behind The Pine' - Presented By Great Lakes Brewing Company! In this series we will be traveling to different bars and breweries around Buffalo to talk beer and how it plays a part in the community! If you know me you know I love craft beer, and being from Cleveland, Great Lakes has always been one of my go to beers. Yes, Great Lakes Brewing Company is a regional beer but they also have their footprint here in the WNY community.  Through this series we'll not only explore their community ties but also stumble across some pretty great bars and beer!

Big Ditch Brewing Company

Our first episode takes us to Big Ditch Brewing Company located on Huron Street in downtown Buffalo. While still relatively new, they've hit the ground running and not only have popular beers but also a go-to restaurant and brew pub.

The location is perfect, the atmosphere is great, the food is exceptional and of course the beer is delicious. When Great Lakes approached them about collaborating on a beer it was the perfect fit! See how the collaboration came to be and why they chose the name Great Big Steve! Then head to Big Ditch Brewing Company and have a taste yourself! Cheers!
