Taproom Hours
11am-10pm Daily

Overlooking our classic brewhouse, our Grand Rapids taproom is a great testing ground for us. On any given day you’ll find many beers on tap that are only available at the taproom. It’s a laid-back former trucking depot that was modeled after a German beer hall, complete with a patio and beer garden. Check out our handcrafted sandwiches, book the Centennial Room for a private Founders experience, or take a tour of the brewery!

We will continue to seat you on a first come, first served basis – a greeter will meet you upon arrival. Use the Yelp Waitlist App to add your name to the list.

  • Are animals allowed at the taproom?

    Despite our love for animals, they are not allowed in the beer garden or inside of our taproom. Sorry, furry friends. Of course, bona fide service dogs are permitted

  • Where would you suggest that I park? How can I get my parking validated?

    We have a gated parking lot between Goodrich and Bartlett (just south of our facility). To ensure that your parking is validated, please present your ticket to your bartender/server when cashing out. You’ll receive up to two hours free of charge, after which a $2.00/half hour fee will apply. There is no charge between 11pm-8am so any cars left overnight (safety first!) will not incur any additional charges.

    The entrance to this lot is off Goodrich and the pay station and exit are just off Bartlett St. This is a cashless system that accepts Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover cards. Here’s a handy map:

  • It’s my birthday, and I’m planning to go out with friends and family to celebrate—and we want to visit the taproom. Can I make a reservation or call ahead for a table?

    Unfortunately, we do not take reservations and do not hold tables for anyone, regardless of the occasion. However, you can download the Yelp waitlist app for our Grand Rapids taproom here to put your name on the list. You will then be texted when your table is ready.

    We also have a private event rental space available for booking Grand Rapids!

  • Do you offer tours of your facility in Grand Rapids?

    Yup! You can find more details and book a tour here.
