Grand Rapids Brewing Company
Originally opened on New Year’s Day in 1893 as a merger of 6 smaller breweries, Grand Rapids Brewing Company made its triumphant return to downtown GR on December 5th, 2012 – ironcally the same day that prohibition was repealed in 1933.
GRBC is located just 6 blocks from its original location at Ionia and Michigan, at the busiest corner of the vibrant Heartside entertainment district.
GRBC is proud to be the Midwest’s first USDA-certified organic brewery. Chef Adam Watts has created a menu that is sourced mostly from West Michigan’s bountiful agri-business, and features both house-made and Sobie sausages.
In keeping with the organic and local theme of GRBC, much of the interior space was created using reclaimed materials. Tables were made from the old floor joists. The barstools were made in Grand Rapids, the art was done by local artist David Dodde, the host stand is an old foreman’s station from the Chris-Craft factory, and the old fire door even got a coat of paint and hung over the bar in the back room.
As a part of BarFly, GRBC recycles about 90% of waste, utilizes a closed-loop composting system, and works with a number of fantastic local businesses to find creative ways to be stewards of the environment.
