    Beer City, USA

    Voted Beer City USA in national polls and named Best Beer Town and Best Beer Scene by USA TODAY readers, Grand Rapids is the perfect place for your next beercation. Our Beer City Ale Trail boasts 80+ breweries – that’s more incredible craft beer per square mile than just about anywhere else on earth.

    As of March 16th, Governor Whitmer issued Executive Order 2020-9 which temporarily limits restaurants to carry-out and delivery orders until further notice. We are working to provide you with a list of restaurants and breweries that are offering food delivery and pick-up options. Please also check with the establishment for the most up-to-date information, but we will do our best to stay informed during this fluid situation.

    If you’re a restaurant with updated policies for deliver and/or take-out, fill out the following form so that we can inform our audience and help promote your efforts.
