GRBC is located just 6 blocks from its original location at Ionia and Michigan, at the busiest corner of the vibrant Heartside entertainment district. Since opening HopCat, the craft beer focus of the GR bar scene has seen a virtual explosion, and it made us want to 'rescue' this great name in Grand Rapids history from the suburban indignity of being located in a mall parking lot. GRBC is proud to be the Midwest's first USDA-certified organic brewery. In keeping with the organic and local theme of GRBC, much of our interior space was created using reclaimed materials. Our tables were are made from the old floor joists pulled up as we began rehabbing the space. The barstools were made right here in GR, the art was done by local artist David Dodde, our host stand an old foreman's station from the Chris-Craft factory, we even gave the old fire door a coat of paint and hung it over the bar in the back room.
