Number 25 … And Counting!

A renaissance in microbrewing? Yup. And my hometown sips the sweet suds of success.

This past week, the 25th microbrewery opened its doors in the metro Grand Rapids area. The milestone nips the heels of Grand Rapids earning the national designation of Beer City U.S.A. for the second year in a row.

A renaissance in microbrewing? Yup. And my hometown sips the sweet suds of success.

Let me put it this way: Three of the local “big boys” on the scene — Founders Brewing Co., The Grand Rapids Brewing Co. and Brewery Vivant — are each located within a short walk of my front door.

So, a question to our VLO family. We have the access … do you have the interest? Would you like to hear more about microbrewing? Maybe listen in on some conversatin’ with local owners?
