Mitten Brewing has been busy expanding their capacity to utilize all the area they have at their current location. First opening outdoor patio seating earlier this summer complete with umbrella’s and heat lamps for the cool fall evenings and now they’ve opened the upstairs too!
This new upstairs offers another bar and more table seating as well just in time for ArtPrize. The upstairs will be open all day for art viewing and for drinks from 5-10 p.m. every day!
Harmony Brewing is planning to put $1.2 million into a new brewpub located in the west side of Grand Rapids in the area known as Little Mexico. Harmony Brewing is purchasing the former Little Mexico Café at 401 Stocking Ave. NW and will be renovating it to create a brewpub with added capacity to compliment their current brewery in Easttown. This new brewery is expected to open near the end of 2014 and will added a second brewery to the west side of Grand Rapids along with Mitten Brewing which is also expanding this year. The brewery will have a menu filled with local ethnic foods to compliment the beers brewed there. With the addition of more brewing capacity at the new location plans are to brew staple beers there and do more experimental small batches at the original Harmony Brewery in Easttown.
To accommodate a new 40-barrel brewing system and expanded bottling/labeling/packaging equipment, Saugatuck Brewing Company is pleased to announce a brewery expansion project to begin in October of this year.
In spring 2014, the new system will replace the current 10-bbl system. Additional offices and expanded cooler space will also be included in the project planning.
The remodeling will utilize a portion of the existing Singapore Room banquet hall. The remaining area of this space is planned for the versatility of overflow restaurant seating as well as accommodation of small to mid-sized private groups.
More specific information will be made available over the next few months as detailed plans become finalized.
