Greyline Brewing Co. is the latest brewery to emerge in the continuous growth of Grand Rapids Beer City. The brewery is the first to open on Alpine Ave on Grand Rapid’s northwest side in close proximity to Mitten Brewing Co. on Leonard Street and within a couple miles of Harmony Hall located at Stocking and Bridge. Owners Nathan Walser and Kevin Clancy bring with them big brewery experience with their background that include work with Perrin and Founders, but Greyline Brewing Co. plans are to stay small with a 7-barrel system and producing under 1,000 barrels a year.

Grand Rapids has earned the title Beer City, and with another new brewery located at 1727 Alpine Avenue NW called Grey Line Brewing Co., that title is secure. This will be the ninth brewery located in the city limits of Grand Rapids. With two more opening later this summer (Harmony Hall and New Holland satellite location), I see them keeping the Beer City title for a long time.

Beer City Article

When I started Experience Beer, there were many crazy ideas jostling around in my brain, the first and primary goal was to put on the Grand Rapids Beer Tasting Class, Michigan's first extensive 9-week Beer Tasting Class, which is currently in it's fourth year. Over the couple years, another idea had come alongside, and that was the idea of a Brewer's Round Table. What if you got all of the city's brewers on stage for one awesome night of Q+A?


A mere few years ago when Hudsonville was still a dry community, who would have ever imagined that the City could be home in the near future to a successful beer festival drawing breweries from all over West Michigan and beyond? However, those few short years included the whirlwind of activity in Grand Rapids and surrounding areas culminating in the region’s two year climb to ascension leading to the now undisputed national recognition as Beer City USA. Hudsonville was not left out of this frenzy, with two of it’s own breweries being established during these years: White Flame Brewing Co. and Pike 51 Brewing Co. in conjunction with the Hudsonville winery.
