not just a random anniversary
Sometimes the stars just align. GRBC is gearing up to celebrate its anniversary – make that anniversaries. Three of them, in fact. On Saturday, December 16, we’ll be having a party to mark the five years we’ve been open at our current location at Fulton and Ionia in downtown Grand Rapids, where we’ve become a key player in the city’s thriving craft brewing scene.
This also coincides with the 25th anniversary of GRBC’s previous incarnation, which opened on 28th Street in 1993, back when the idea of Grand Rapids as a nationally renowned beer mecca was barely conceivable.
Going back even earlier, we’re also observing the 125th anniversary of the ORIGINAL original GRBC. It opened in 1893 when a consortium of small local breweries opened a large facility near a freshwater spring in downtown Grand Rapids, where it would operate successfully until Prohibition ended the party.
Stay tuned for more on our celebration, which rare tappings we'll be featuring and other perks for longtime GRBC fans!

Ready for your big break? The Travel Channel is visiting us to shoot an episode of a popular series at GRBC from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 29, and we’d like to pack the house. We can't say which show, but it will involve our 1-800-HOTLINE-BEEF, winner of the 2016 Grandwich competition. Bring your friends, your friends’ friends, the cast of “FRIENDS” and anyone you know who loves to eat and drink. Professional headshots not required.
