Lake Effect Brewing Company
Each member of the duo behind Lake Effect Brewing Company has a similar story, as both developed a new appreciation for handcrafted beers while traveling through Europe. With their respective beer passions ignited, Clint Bautz and Lynn Ford embarked on their journeys as homebrewers. Their hobby gained momentum faster than a cheetah driving a Formula 1 car, so much so that it outgrew its brewing space. So, the two joined forces as Lake Effect Brewing Company. The result is a roster of handcrafted beers, many of which are inspired by the European styles they first tried abroad.
