The Ultimate Walking Tour

For you hikers and craft beer drinkers, we invite you to join us for the Ultimate Walking Beer Tour! We'll be visiting 5 very popular Grand Rapids breweries on foot. We’ll be starting at Founders Brewing Co. and we will walk to Grand Rapids Brewing Co., New Holland's Knickerbocker, Atwater Brewery and Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales/North Peak Brewing Co. 5 breweries in 4.5 hours! Just over a 1.8 mile hike (less then 40 minutes) 2.7 miles (less then 1 hour) if walking back to Founders. Easy hike when you’re drinking delicious cold beers along the way! Founders Brewing Co. is the largest brewery in the state, and one of the most renowned breweries. They brew some of the highest rated beers in the world! We'll sampling some taproom only beers at this stop. The name Grand Rapids Brewing Co. has been around since 1892, their flagship beer was a lager called Silver Foam; you can try the modern version of that beer today! Did we mention they have the best game room in Grand Rapids?! New Holland's Knickerbocker is one of the largest taprooms in the state, and their beers are being shipped across the country these days. With beers like Dragon's Milk (bourbon-barrel aged stout) and Mad Hatter (IPA) they have made quite a name. They originally opened in Holland, MI in 1997, we will be visiting their Grand Rapids location. Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales is one of the most well-known wild/sour ale producers in the country! They make some the most unique & tastiest sours around! If sours are not your thing (or at least you think they aren't) you will have the opportunity to order non-sour ales from North Peak Brewing Co. at this stop as well. North Peak has IPA's, ambers, lagers, browns, stouts & wheats! North Peak originally opened in Traverse City, Jolly Pumpkin in Dexter Michigan, now you won't have to journey to these locations, they're right in the heart or Grand Rapids. At this stop you will choose 1 pint & 1 sample! Atwater Brewery originally opened in 1997 in the Rivertown district of Detroit. We will be trying out their great craft beers on tap inside the historic Rowe Building, downtown Grand Rapids. They are well known for their lagers, Vanilla Java Porter and Dirty Blonde. This location brews on-site several beers you cannot get elsewhere. Tour includes 11 beer samples & 1 pint, and a walk with a knowledgeable beer tour guide providing history of Grand Rapids, beers & breweries along the way. *There will be an opportunity for lunch at New Holland (3rd stop), they have awesome pizzas and sandwiches! *This event is rain or shine, please dress accordingly. *Check in will be at the entrance of Founders Brewing Co.
