This year’s International Wine, Beer & Food Festival was held Thursday, November 19th through Saturday, November 21st and was located at the DeVos Place in Grand Rapids. This year featured over 1,500 varieties of beers and wines, as well as ciders, meads, and spirits. Over the past couple years, beer has played a more prominent role in the festival and with this year’s fest, the new “Beer City Station” shared main stage with the wine on the main floor which was expanded to double the size of prior year events to accommodate more options.
