Long Road Distillers held it’s grand opening to the public on Thursday, May 28th at 5 PM. The distillery is located at 537 Leonard St NW in Grand Rapids with The Mitten Brewing Co. as their neighbor and the also the recently opened Two Scotts Barbecue across the street. The distillery is a true “grain-to-glass” operation with everything milled, mashed, fermented, and distilled in-house. Their handcrafted vodka, gin, and whisky is sourced with as locally available ingredients as possible. The tasting room features a full cocktail menu of speciality drinks with Long Road’s spirits as a base and also features a kitchen with salad, and sandwich options.

The Mitten Brewing Co.’s new outdoor beer patio is just the first of many new exciting expansions in the works at the popular Leonard St. brewery on west-side of Grand Rapids. Recently I had an opportunity to check out the new deck as well as take a sneak peek at some of the improvements in the works for this year. In addition to the patio, a new upper level bar and seating area is currently under construction which all taken together will nearly triple the capacity of the location. The upper level will focus more on the building’s fire station history as opposed to the baseball themed lower level.
