Beer City USA Logo

It's no secret that Grand Rapids, a Cool City with Great Beer, has gotten a lot of attention for the craft beer scene.  Voted 2012 Beer City USA and again in 2013,  Grand Rapids is home to Founders, the 3rd best brewery in the world, and HopCat, voted both the #1 brewpub in the US and the 3rd best beer bar on Earth.

So why not get a taste of our many local craft breweries with your own self-guided craft beer tour and see for yourself why thestreet.com put Grand Rapids on the Top 10 Vacation Cities for Beer Lovers list!

Not only can you use the craft beer tour map below to forge your own path along our beer trail of over 30 local craft breweries, but you can now go behind the scenes at two of the area's most noted breweries, with guided Founders Brewery Tours and Brewery Vivant Tours every Saturday! Each tour provides a personalized, insider look at every step of the process, from fermenting to bottling.  We're proud of how we brew here in Beer City USA, and we're not afraid to share it!
