Founders Brewing Co. is the largest brewery in the state, and one of the most renowned breweries. They brew some of the highest rated beers in the world! We'll sampling some taproom only beers at this stop.
The name Grand Rapids Brewing Co. has been around since 1892, their flagship beer was a lager called Silver Foam; you can try the modern version of that beer today! Did we mention they have the best game room in Grand Rapids?!
B.O.B.’s Brewery is the oldest continually operating brewery in the city. They are a hidden gem of a brewery, located in the basement of The B.O.B.
Harmony Hall is a funky & eccentric brewery that is inspired by the great German Beer Halls. This locally owned brewery has hand crafted soups, salads and award winning pizzas!... Just like the beer, food is made in house. They have various lagers, IPA's, porters/stouts and sours to list a few.
New Holland's Knickerbocker is one of the largest taprooms in the state, and their beers are being shipped across the country these days. With beers like Dragon's Milk (bourbon-barrel aged stout) and Mad Hatter (IPA) they have made quite a name. They originally opened in Holland, MI in 1997, we will be visiting their Grand Rapids location.
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.
