Post-Thanksgiving Tour - Friday, November 29 - 1:00-5:30pm
Join us the day after Thanksgiving to give thanks to malty/hop beverage known as beer! On this special tour we'll be visiting 4 Grand Rapids breweries, Brewery Vivant., City Built Brewing Co., Harmony Hall & B.O.B.'s Brewery.
Brewery Vivant is the only brewery in Michigan that creates Wallonian (southern Belgium/northern France) influenced ales. Wallonian influenced, but 100% American made. The beautiful taproom is housed in an old chapel, the brewery is housed in a livery stable that was built in 1915. Brewery Vivant is unique in every aspect!
City Built Brewing Co. has an eclectic array of ales and food. Beers that already have a following are Flower Power (Pale Ale with green tea & camomile) and Chaga Khan (Chaga mushroom Imperial Stout). They specialize in Puerto Rican food. Their tacos are amazing!
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.
B.O.B.’s Brewery is the oldest continually operating brewery in the city. At this stop we’ll go behind-the-scenes for a brewery tour, typically with John Svoboda, one of the most knowledgeable brewers in West Michigan. Peanut Butter Porter (their most sought after beer) will be on tap!
Tour includes 12 large samples of beer, (3 at each stop) a private brewery tour and transportation to and from the breweries with a knowledgeable beer tour guide.
This tour is on Friday, November 29- 1:00-5:30pm
*There will be an opportunity for lunch at City Built Brewing Co. (2nd stop).
