Grand Rapids, MI – The Grand Rapids Public Museum (GRPM) continues its very popular Beer Explorers program on January 11, 2018 with Beer & Doughnuts giving Grand Rapidians a twist on a Founders beer tasting.

Join the GRPM to learn more about pairing beer with desserts in the next Beer Explorers. This class pairs Founders beer with Robinette’s doughnuts, allowing participants to explore their sense of taste and what combinations appeal to individual palates!

Classes begin at 6:30 p.m. and will be held on the 1st floor of the GRPM. Admission to each class includes general admission to the Museum as well as four beer and doughnut samples. A cash bar will also be available.

Tickets to Beer Explorers is $12 for Museum members and $22 for non-members. Participants must be 21 and older. Tickets can be purchased at

Beer Explorers will continue on February 8 with Brewery Vivant and the Pilot Malt House to learn all about how malts influence the different beers we drink.
