recap gr wine article

2014 marked the 7th year of the International Wine, Beer, and Food Festival with beer having just gained prominence in the festival over the last couple of years. Last year introduced the brewer’s loft on the 3rd level of the DeVos Place with long lines at the escalator to gain admittance and this year that trend continued with attendees seeking to try the over 200 beers available at this year’s fest. Some of the highlights for me this year include the draft selections from Cranker’s and the Bourbon Barrel Aged Shipwreck Porter from Arcadia. This year also featured another bonus: draft beer selections on the main level as well with Pike 51 Brewing and Jaden James (Peanut Butter Porter!) sharing joint booths with their respective Hudsonville and Cascade wineries.

HBC Howebrew Conference article

A unique collaboration between local homebrewers, commercial brewers, hop growers and maltsters has taken shape for the 2014 National Homebrewers Conference (“NHC”) being held June 12 – 14 at DeVos Place in downtown Grand Rapids. The effort, dubbed the MiIPA Series, involves a series of both homebrewed and commercially brewed India Pale Ale style beers, made especially for NHC, that use 100% Michigan grown malt and hops.
