Other breweries in West Michigan that are offering food for take-out or delivery

Our company finds itself at the crossroads of craft beer and tourism — two industries profoundly affected by the ongoing coronavirus. In line with steps being taken across the globe, our events are suspended until we hear otherwise. We intend to reschedule existing events to a time period more suitable to these types of activities. Our guests who have made purchases will be issued credits to be used within 12 months of whenever normalcy returns. We sympathize with our friends at independent breweries, retailers, bars and restaurants, hotels, bed-and-breakfasts and transportation providers. We’ve worked alongside you for years to elevate our region and create memorable experiences. We’ll do it again. We also know these friends are some of the best people in our communities. A lot of us aren’t in these respective fields because the work is easy. That mindset will start paying dividends as we navigate these unprecedented waters. We encourage our guests to support our local businesses by either purchasing gift cards or making takeout food and beer orders. We’re excited for the day when we can get together and raise a pint of Michigan beer high. Until then, stay safe and do what you can to support each other. Thank you and cheers!
