Bring your tasting sense of adventure to this 3-day Craft Beer Experience to Grand Rapids, Michigan.
On our weekend we'll tour production facilities such as Founders Brewery, ranked as one of the world’s top breweries, along with other local favorites. In total we'll experience 4 unique breweries but you'll also have a chance explore your choice of a number of breweries independently just steps away from our hotel in downtown Grand Rapids, MI. The Canopy by Hilton Hotel, opened in 2020, has decor inspired and influenced by the local surroundings. The hotel’s mid-century-modern design nods to Grand Rapids' “furniture city” history and the upscale, intimate local biergarten-themed rooftop bar features fantastic views of the city.
Because Grand Rapids beer culture is more than just about what’s in your glass, you’ll sip in unique settings – from an early 1900's funeral chapel to a year-round beer garden where brewing herbs grow on a living wall. we'll also taste how breweries contribute to Grand Rapids’ ranking as a Top 25 Foodie City, from chef creations using brewing products. We'll even participate in an exclusive, hand on culinary class creating a 3-course meal using beer theme ingredients.
We'll finish our beer-venture bouncing along Michigan’s nationally acclaimed dunes in a dune schooner ride.
