The Tale of Beer City USA 5K

“In Grand Rapids, the German-born immigrants began arriving in the 1840’s, and within a decade, they were one of the city’s largest immigrant groups.  This increased the local demand for beer and the need for more breweries and brewmasters.”  This is the beginning of the Tale of Beer City USA…as told to runners and seen through the lenses of beer-colored glasses.  In the narrative of this fun and fascinating tour, you will learn about the history of the beer brewing industry in Grand Rapids, its demise and its comeback that earned Grand Rapids the “Beer City” title.  You will be so captivated by the story, that your feet won’t even know they are moving.
