Cool Brews. Hot Eats.

 It's back! Mark your calendars for February 16-28, 2015!

Grand Rapids has been name Beer City, USA (for the second year) and that's due in large part to more than a dozen craft breweries located in the metro region - and new ones are popping up all the time! Grand Rapids was also named one of the Top 10 Best Vacation Cities for Beer Lovers - so pack up your thirst and come on over! It's the perfect time for a tour of our incredible breweries, beer bars and Grand Rapids' newest promotion that blends two things that make Grand Rapids a great destination - craft beer and fantastic food!

Centered around the sold out, Annual Winter Beer Festival, Grand Rapids celebrates beer with Beer Week! To complement Beer Week, Experience Grand Rapids works with area restaurants for the Cool Brews. Hot Eats. beer promotion.
