Grand Rapids Beer City USA 2013 - The Time to Vote is Now!

There is no question 2012 was great year for Grand Rapids and beer. A record number of brewery openings included Eastown’s Harmony, Mitten Brewing, and Grand Rapids Brewing Company as well as both Pike 51 and White Flame in Hudsonville, Perrin in Comstock Park and Rockford Brewing Company. Additionally Grand Rapid’s most successful brewery Founders celebrated their 15-year anniversary in style which included the release of their 15% Bolt Cutter Barleywine. But perhaps the defining moment in 2012 was the nomination and securing of the title Beer City USA in a tied vote along with previous year victors Asheville, North Carolina.

Rockford Brewing Company Grand Opening

Rockford Brewing Company Grand Opening

The newly open Rockford Brewing Company has a lot going for with a great location, solid beers, and the already established Poindexter’s Speciality Marketplace located next door providing a selection of sandwiches and sides. I first visited the location back in April while the building was still undergoing renovations in preparation for the upcoming brewery. I was immediately impressed by the great location in downtown Rockford adjacent to the White Pine Trail and overlooking the scenic Rogue River Dam.

Rockford Brewing Co. debuts 6 beers for pub crawl on year's busiest bar night

Debuting 6 taps for a pub crawl on the busiest bar night of the year is both a stroke of genius and a little insane, but Rockford Brewing Co. was able to pull it off with style. My friends and I met up with RBC’s own Seth Rivard at an information booth / open house at the brewery showcasing great progress toward the December 20th Grand Opening date. Pint glasses, T-shirts, growlers, and various merchandise were available along with flyers showcasing the beers and a map of participating pubs for the crawl.

2nd annual Hoptoberfest ups the ante for Hopcat’s Fall Beer Festival

Hopcat is already the third best beer bar on planet Earth (per Beer Advocate magazine,) and they obviously have their sights set now on inter-planetary dominance based on this year’s Hoptoberfest festival. 40 Michigan breweries took over Ionia Street to celebrate. Standouts included Hudsonvile’s White Flame Brewing Co. which in addition to their astounding Bourbon Barrel aged Black Sheep IPA, also featured a beer drinking, cigarette smoking “G Man” super hero mascot making the rounds throughout the festival. Although there was no German beer tent this year, instead a booth of rotating taps featured such speciality pours as the Hopcat Rapture Wild Ale and Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout.
