Grand Rapids Brewing Company is a great place to have quality food and quality beers at great prices. The brewpub is simply gorgeous. It’s an industrial warehouse turned organic masterpiece with all its exposed wood and reclaimed materials. The whole organic/ home-grown theme extends from the pub itself, to the food, to the beer, which is pretty cool. The same owners of this place run HopCat and other beautiful craft beer pubs in the area. It only goes to show that they know what they are doing, and obviously they are great at it.
Grand Rapids Brewing Company has its own range of craft beers on tap, and all of them are equally amazing. The Silver Foam is an American Lager and is basically a new take on the classic export lager that was first brewed by Grand Rapids Brewing Company in 1893. Another one on the list is Rosalynn Bliss Blonde, which is a Gold Medal award winner of the World Beer Championship. The subtle apricot and tea flavors compliment this classic blonde ale which was crafted in the honor of ward #2 city commissioner and her passion for local craft beer. Other great beers to try at Grand Rapids Brewing Company include John Ball Brown, The Fishladder, Violet MacMillan’s, Downtown Donk, and Citrus Foam.
Other than unique beers which are homebrewed you can try several of Grand Rapids Brewing Company’s snacks and food items which complement the drinks greatly. You can try ranch pretzels, and caramel corn for your drinks, and if you are hungry you can try the salads, or burgers, whichever you feel like having. Also, the fish, slaw, spicy tartar, and French rolls are simply amazing. They are all made the way they should be made, and since the staff uses the best of ingredients and cooks every single item from scratch all the flavors and pleasant aromas are fully retained.
Like most popular brew spots Grand Rapids Brewing Company has its own fair selection of weekly specials. The Happy Hours go from Monday through Friday from 4 pm to 6 pm. You get to have 50% off on any Tier 1 or Tier 2 beer, wine, well or call cocktail. They also have a Trivia Night on Wednesdays where they have “Geeks Who Drink Pub Quizzes” starting at 8pm. So, gather all your friends, and head to this place whenever you get time, you are to be amazed by the experience.
