It started in 2009. Our Brewmaster, Jeremy Kosmicki, wanted a beer that was easy to drink, light in alcohol, yet just as flavorful as a full-bodied IPA. Try as he might, he just couldn’t find one to fit that specific criteria. So, he did as any good brewer would, and set out to brew the beer he wanted to drink.
Double Trouble, the imperial IPA that was brewed to turn your world upside down has returned and it now has its very own Untappd badge!
Last weekend, we hosted our very first international beer festival in Madrid, Spain and, now that the dust has settled, we thought we’d share a recap!
When we opened our doors in downtown Grand Rapids, MI almost 21 years ago, we made a commitment that all would be welcome in our taproom, no matter class, race, gender or sexual orientation. Beer brings people together and we wanted our taproom to reflect that.
Hey everyone! Founders’ Brewmaster and IPA enthusiast, Jeremy, here to share some history on one of our most beloved year-round mainstays, Centennial IPA.
Inspired by the tiki cocktails that our Brewmaster is particularly fond of, we’re happy to announce the latest release in our Barrel-Aged Series!
Hey y’all, Liz Wonder here, Founders’ Sustainability Coordinator and outdoor enthusiast!
I love going for long hikes and enjoying all the beauty the Mitten State has to offer, but it can be really disappointing to see litter or old bonfire remnants in the middle of an otherwise pristine view. Luckily, there is an awesome organization dedicated to training and educating folks on how to enjoy nature without leaving lasting negative impacts.
Congrats to our four winners! Thanks to everyone that participated and introduced Solid Gold to a craft beer newbie.
Happy (almost) National Homebrew Day, everyone! To celebrate the Big Brew, we’re sharing an American ESB recipe from our Barrel House Brewer, Matt Blodgett, from his very own homebrew recipe collection.
Creating the label for Dankwood was just as much an exercise in experimentation as creating the beer itself.
Calling new and seasoned homebrewers alike!
Now that the weather is warming up and we’re gearing up to launch another All Day Getaway Contest (coming later this summer – stay tuned), we thought we’d take a look back at our 2017 winners‘ trips.

We’ve long been proponents of cheese and beer pairings – in fact, we don’t remember a time where our taproom’s Beer Cheese Dip wasn’t the top-selling item. As nicely as a hunk of sharp cheddar pairs with a pint of Rubaeus or some hearty blue cheese with a glass of Breakfast Stout, we also think there’s plenty of room for beer and cheese to coexist in one, fantastic dish.
We are happy to announce the Madrid Beer & Music Fest, our very first international festival (well, that we’ve hosted).
Hey everyone, Jeremy here to share some knowledge – ahem, beer knowledge – with you. KBS season is officially in full swing and I thought some of you might be interested to hear about where and how it all began. So, grab a KBS, pour it in the appropriate glassware, take a sip, settle in and enjoy…
