Found this place after enjoying some of my Sunday in Grand Rapids with my girlfriend. It appears to be in the middle of nowhere relatively since the only thing around is a greyhound station across the street. Though Grand Rapids appeared to be rather empty on a Sunday anyway. The brewery doesn't really have all that much parking, and people flooded into this place when it opened at 3pm. It speaks to the popularity of the place if at 3pm on a Sunday it starts to be really full. I can imagine that this place would be really cool in the summer when they open the garage door style doors to make the whole place open air. I bet with live music going this very hippie seeming place would be kick ass to be at. This was a very spacious place that looked rather recycled (not meaning that I've seen it before, but that stuff in the room was made out of recycled materials). It was a really nice establishment. The server was really cool and fun the only weird thing is that when we were ready to leave we had to get the growler we payed for out of the cooler, which was full of other growlers and sixers, it was rather trusting of them. They had some things that only they made that you couldn't find in many different places on tap. I enjoyed my trip there, and would come back if the chance arose.

Great place to eat, have a drink, and have a get together with friends. Awesome beer selection with various price ranges. Founder's actually serves some of their beers in glasses other than pint glasses which is a nice break from the norm.

Lived in GR for 4 years, and have to say, without a doubt, this is my favorite brewery of all time. Homer bias? Fine. Nostalgia? Yes. But boy do they make some great beer. Plus the food is outstanding, and the music/environment is one of a kind. New beer garden takes it to another level. A must visit for any beer lover.
