"Camp Rapids" is the sophomore release of a simple concept: Beer is art. For thousands of years, our ancestors have brewed beer, calling on their environment to inspire delicious fermented wheat juices. This year, our team of artists and brewers have looked to our pleasant peninsula and crafted two beers and an immersive art installation drawing on Michigan’s great outdoors. Play a part in embracing our Great Lakes State and go outside at Grand Rapids Brewing Company, where you can enjoy the serenity of Michigan’s unique environment; play cornhole, drink around the campfire, hang in the hammock. Don’t pack up without a 4-pack of 16oz cans of Camp Rapids’ Dune Juice Cherry Lager and Bon Bon Fire S’more Stout; part of the proceeds will benefit the Michigan Children with Special Needs Fund, providing children accessibility to Michigan’s outdoor experiences unlike those of any other state in the country.
