The two West Michigan business are really bringing things full circle with this collaboration as Beer City Bread Co. uses Perrin beer in their baked goods.

Here's how they describe the new Rye IPA: 

Beer City Rye IPA (8% ABV) stays incredibly true to style by using real, artisan rye bread from Beer City Bread Co. Resinous American Hops provide balance to this Imperial Rye IPA, which showcases notes of biscuit and caraway seed from toasted rye bread added directly to the mash.

Senior Marketing Manager Lindsey VanDenBoom says,

Bread and beer have a truly cooperative relationship, making our partnership with our neighbors at Beer City Bread Co. very natural. We’re all super proud of this Western-Michigan-powered beer!

Beer City Rye IPA is available on draft and in 6-packs at Perrin's Pub at 5910 Comstock Park Drive NW in Comstock Park and soon in retailers across Michigan.

Here's how Beer City Bread Co. describes their process,

Beer City Bread Co. products are developed from craft beer and natural European sourdough starters that are cultivated daily in our bakery as the foundation of each bread batch. Each bread dough is aged over 24 hours, then processed using our unique "stress-free" dough handling bread line before baking, allowing true artisan qualities to develop in every product we offer.

They have multiple locations in West Michigan:

  • 2650 East Beltline SE in Grand Rapids
  • 722 NW Leonard St. in Grand Rapids
  • 777 5th 54th St. in Wyoming
  • 34 S. Squires Rockford
