Tour 2: Beer City Experience - Saturday, September 22 - 12-4pm
Tour 2: Beer City Experience will have you visiting Founders Brewing Co., Harmony Hall and Atwater Brewery (all of which are ArtPrize venues).
Founders Brewing Co. is the 2nd largest brewery in the state, and one of the most renowned breweries in the world. Their beers are widespread, we'll be trying some beers that you can only get in the taproom and some local favorites.
Atwater Brewery originally opened in 1997 in the Rivertown district of Detroit. We will be trying out their great craft beers on tap inside the historic Rowe Building, downtown Grand Rapids. They are well known for their lagers, Vanilla Java Porter and Dirty Blonde. This location brews on-site several beers you cannot get elsewhere. On the tour you will get to choose any 4 samples of your liking from their extensive beer menu.
Harmony Hall is a funky & eccentric brewery that is inspired by the great German Beer Halls. This locally owned brewery has hand crafted sausages, soups, salads and sandwiches... Just like the beer, food is made in house. Bring or buy a growler, you can only buy their awesome beers on location. They have various lagers, IPA's, porters/stouts and sours to list a few.
Tour includes 12 large samples of beer, a private brewery tour and transportation to and from the breweries with a knowledgeable beer tour guide.
This tour is on Saturday, September 22 - 12-4pm
