Weekend Radar // Labor Day – Beer State Style

Happy Saturday and first full day of this Labor Day holiday weekend! I know it’s been a while since my last post and there hasn’t been a lack for fun and exciting end of summer events and establishments to visit! So, I hope you have been grabbing yourself plenty of GR love lately! 😉

Naturally, there are some awesome happenings around Grand Rapids and the Mitten state this weekend as well! Whether you’re hanging onto the last golden bits of summer with a cool drink on the beach, enjoying a Labor Day parade with the kiddies or brunchin’ it up at one of the many amazing restaurant choices in GR – this weekend has a lot in store; especially when it comes to enjoying some Michigan spirits and brews! Here are just a few Beer State offerings on my radar this weekend:

  • Osgood Brewing is celebrating their 2-year anniversary in Grandville today starting at 5pm. Celebrate till 12am tonight with special beer, cider and food offerings! Check out all the info on their Facebook event page.
  • Long Road Distillers offers distillery tours from 4-5pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays – get a personalized look at the distilling process at the first craft distillery in GR. Best part – tour will  only costs 15 bucks and includes some tastes and a custom logo glass!

  • Lastly, Brewery Vivant is kicking off the release of Love Shadow (bourbon barrel aged imperial stout) in the taproom and in cans (yes, another popular by demand limited can release)! What a great kickoff before their annual Wood Aged Barrel Fest in a couple weeks. Pub opens at noon – better get there early as they are anticipating a long line for this one.
