In addition to being widely recognized for the beer accolades, Grand Rapids also has a great reputation for being a vegan-friendly City. One may not immediately recognize the two things as going hand in hand, but in actuality there are some surprising connections. To start with, beer as a beverage can be a good fit in vegan diet, with only a few styles (i.e. Milk Stout) being inherently non-vegan. So where are some good places to enjoy a vegan meal along with your favorite Michigan Craft beers?

One of the oldest bars in Lansing, which has been closed for several years, is set to reopen this summer. Zoobie's Old Town Tavern, owned by the same family since 1932, was the first bar in Michigan to receive a liquor license after the 21st amendment passed repealing prohibition. Over the years it maintained the feel of an old neighborhood bar serving cold beer and humble bar food. I remember visiting Zoobie's once in college and I thought that although it was old and a bit rundown, that at one time it was probably a very nice place.
