Area breweries collaborate to create "Beer City" Pale Ale

Area breweries collaborate to create "Beer City" Pale Ale

Grand Rapids has yet another reason to toast the town.  Ten area breweries have teamed to create Beer City Pale Ale, a new craft beer produced in celebration of both the city’s newest title and Craft Beer Month beginning July 1.

“The breweries came together in a fun and fitting way to honor Grand Rapids’ newest claim to fame as ‘Beer City USA’ and July’s month-long celebration of craft beer. Cheers to each of them for such a creative and collaborative approach to making the most of these well-deserved accolades,” said Experience Grand Rapids President Doug Small.

The breweries collaborated on a recipe that resulted in a red pale ale, amply hopped with all Michigan grown cascade and nugget hops. Each brewery produced their own version of the beer, which they will offer on tap throughout July.
