This year’s ArtPrize is taking place from September 23rd until October 11th on downtown Grand Rapids and B.O.B.’s Brewery has collaborated with Detroit’s own Atwater Brewery for a special release of the Michigunder Dortmunder Lager. A tapping event was held at Containment outside the B.O.B. which featured a brewer meet & greet, art unveiling, and DJ. The label design for the beer was designed by Ypsilanti artist Morgaine Fambrough and $1 from every pint sold as well all as 100% of merchandise sales benefit the organization ACT - Artists Creating Together.

The Mitten Brewing Co.’s new outdoor beer patio is just the first of many new exciting expansions in the works at the popular Leonard St. brewery on west-side of Grand Rapids. Recently I had an opportunity to check out the new deck as well as take a sneak peek at some of the improvements in the works for this year. In addition to the patio, a new upper level bar and seating area is currently under construction which all taken together will nearly triple the capacity of the location. The upper level will focus more on the building’s fire station history as opposed to the baseball themed lower level.

Lots on tap at B.O.B.'s Brewery in downtown Grand Rapids

The B.O.B. is a destination in and of itself; but maybe instead you are here for a concert at the Van Andel, visiting the local theater or perhaps one of many great local events such as ArtPrize or the Festival of the Arts. Maybe you are even here visiting one of the many exceptional breweries such as Founders or Hopcat. Whatever the reason, a visit to the Monkey Bar at this building's basement level serving as the home of B.O.B's brewery equals a guaranteed exceptional find in this city already renowned for it's exceptional taste in beer.
