The Hideout Brewery is closing

The Hideout is Closing per a facebook post on their official page:

Unfortunately after over 13 years of operation The Hideout is closing. Friday and Saturday March 15-16th will be the Hideout Goodbye Party and Sunday March 17th, St Patrick’s day, will be the last day the Hideout is open. We are excited about seeing all of the old regulars one last time at the brewery and hope that everyone has a great time!

Please make sure to get your mug to take home if you are a mug club member. Please also spend any gift cards that you have, they will be accepted while we are operational.

Many people have asked why were are closing and not finishing a sale. We have been working hard to sell The Hideout with a number of buyers since June. We had finalized all of the details with a buyer but they were unable to get rights to the building.The owner of the building has been unwilling to negotiate with any of our potential buyers. They have been unwilling to give any buyer a price to have a new lease or land contract. Because of this, we have been unable to sell the business as a whole and are left with no option but to close the doors.

We will be selling all of the equipment and assets of the brewery. Some of the equipment stays with the building, but the rest is all for sale. The Brew Kettle, Mash Ton, two out of three walk in coolers, and some additional equipment is not for sale, everything else is available. You can contact me directly by email or text me to setup a time to come look at the equipment. nick@hideoutbrewing.com 616-389-9900 I will be posting specific pieces on craigslist and send another email with more details.

City Built Brewing opens Memorial Weekend (finally!)

City Built Brewing will finally open 11 a.m. Saturday, May 27 after more than a year delay. Located at 820 Monroe Ave in the North Monroe district this brewery fills a gap left by Founders when they left the Brassworks building 10 years ago.
City Built will start off with a five-day-a-week schedule: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday; 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday, and noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday.
The 2,300-square-foot space has a 10-barrel brewing system, a kitchen, a 180-seat taproom and a meeting room, dubbed The Second Ward, available for large groups and business meetings.
The food will have Puerto Rican style and the brewer favors experimentation with unusual herbs and spices to create flavorful, idiosyncratic beers.
So if you are still in Grand Rapids this Memorial Weekend, visit City Built Brewing and welcome them to Beer City!
