The new Grand Rapids Brewing Company has opened in Downtown, at the corner of Ionia and Fulton. It's housed in the old "My Bar" location and right across the street from the new Buffalo Wild Wings. And on Wednesday at 3pm, there was a line out the door. This IS Beer City USA, so it makes sense.

WZZM TV 13 had a story on the grand opening, as did MLive "Thirsty patrons pack the new Grand Rapids Brewing Co. public opening downtown"

As it was reported in the MLive story "The new Grand Rapids Brewing Co., the latest edition to the BarFly Ventures portfolio for HopCat, Stella’s Lounge and McFadden’s owners Mark and Michele Sellers, opened at 3 pm. Wednesday to a long line of thirsty patrons eager to get inside and sample some John Ball Brown ale, Rosalynn Bliss blonde ale and the storied Silver Foam lager."

GRBC joins an ever growing list of beer choices in town ranging from Schmohz's Brewery and Founders to Brewery Vivant and Harmony Brewering Company. Go Downtown! So knwing all that, I ask you....
