Join us for a Specialty Tour on a Friday evening that will have you visiting Fountain Hill Brewery, New Holland's Knickerbocker and City Built Brewing Co.
Fountain Hill Brewery is Beer City's best well kept secret! Operated by students enrolled in the Craft Brewing, Packaging and Service Operations certificate they are releasing some of the highest quality beers in Grand Rapids. Their hours are very limited, only open during the school season and on Thursdays & Fridays from 5:30-8:30pm If you are lucky enough to drink a beer from the first college craft brewery (that actually serves their beers to public) you are in for a treat! Every visit here allows you to talk to the students who make the beer and tour the brewery!
New Holland's Knickerbocker is the largest taproom in the state! This impressive taproom also has a wide array of ales (many of which you can only get in the taproom). New Holland originally opened in 1997 in Holland, MI this location opened in September of 2016. New Holland is one of the largest craft breweries in Michigan, with beers like Dragon's Milk (bourbon-barrel aged stout) you will see why.
City Built Brewing Co. has an eclectic array of ales and food. Beers that already have a following are Flower Power (Pale Ale with green tea & camomile) and Chaga Khan (Chaga mushroom Imperial Stout). They specialize in Puerto Rican food.
Tour includes 12 large samples of beer, a private brewery tour and transportation to and from the breweries with a knowledgeable beer tour guide.
*There will be an opportunity for an early dinner at the 2nd stop (City Built Brewing Co.).
