Grand Rapids is one of the best places to get a beer. In fact, the city was named Beer City USA in a national poll, as well as the Best Beer Town and Best Beer Scene by magazines like TODAY, among others. If you’re looking for a creamy stout or some bitter IPAs, there’s something for everyone. If you’re a true beer fan, check out Beer Month GR, a celebration of the city’s many brews.
According to Experience Grand Rapids, there are over 60 craft breweries within a one-hour drive from downtown Grand Rapids. Plus, new locations are popping up like crazy as the town is recognized by more and more organizations. In addition to earning a spot as Beer City USA, Grand Rapids was also named the Best Food City in Michigan, making Grand Rapids any bar fly’s paradise.
This year’s Beer Month GR is themed Cool Brews Hot Eats, letting you experience both the great food and craft brews the city has to offer. Specialty dishes will be paired with beers to offer you the best dining experience possible. Offered from February 15 to March 15, 2017, this is the best time to explore the city’s culinary culture.
The official menus will be announced right before the month starts, but we can’t wait to see what’s offered. Just be sure to get a designated driver or to take a taxi if you decide to have a drink or two.
