A Guide to Beer City, Vegan Style

 A Guide to Beer City, Vegan Style

In addition to being widely recognized for the beer accolades, Grand Rapids also has a great reputation for being a vegan-friendly City. One may not immediately recognize the two things as going hand in hand, but in actuality there are some surprising connections. To start with, beer as a beverage can be a good fit in vegan diet, with only a few styles (i.e. Milk Stout) being inherently non-vegan. So where are some good places to enjoy a vegan meal along with your favorite Michigan Craft beers?

A Grand Pumpkin Tour of Grand Rapids, “Beer City USA”

If you enjoyed the Beer City Pale Ale promotion awhile back, 11 Grand Rapids area breweries have returned with the new Grand Pumpkin - and this time each one has something a little different to offer. Brewery Vivant and Harmony Brewing Company in Easttown have both participated. Harmony’s Grand Pumpkin is a 7.4% ABV Chai beer. Also on special here when I visited was the Goatoberfest pizza with sausage, goat cheese, basil, and pumpkin sauce. Perhaps you’ve heard of the White House honey ale? Harmony has brewed their own version “Ale to the Chief” and I can attest to the deliciousness. If you are out on 28th Street in Kentwood / Cascade area, you can check out Schmohz experimental Pumpkin Rye and Jaden James has their Pumpkin Ale on tap now also.
