“Strange Brew” Brewer’s Grove Park Party

September 12, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm



To celebrate this great collaboration, we’ll be hosting a BREWER’S GROVE PARK PARTY on Friday, September 12 at Riverside Park. Meet the minds behind the Tree Beers and enjoy “Strange Brew” on the big screen! Be sure to stop on the way to pick up your favorite Tree Beer in a Growler to enjoy at the event!

The Brewers Grove Project started in 2013 when local brewers asked Friends of GR Parks (FGRP) how they could celebrate being named Beer City USA by giving back to our parks and public spaces. The idea was seeded to create tree-themed beers that would be offered for a limited time with proceeds going directly to FGRP’s Urban Forest Project and tree plantings. In 2013, a Brewers Grove of 30 trees was planted at Riverside Park with volunteers from local breweries.

PARKING INSTRUCTIONS: (if you’re not on a bike or walking)

The event will be held at the “Band-shell Shelter” of Riverside Park. It is the large parking lot in the middle of the little league fields. The approximate address is 2875 Monroe Ave NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49505. The area is undergoing significant construction so please take note of the following directions: You will not be able to access the park from the south (from downtown, up Monroe) or from the North (from North Park) because both ways are closed. To access the park, you will need to come from either Coit or Plainfield. Next, head West on 3 Mile Road. 3 Mile Road will dead end into Monroe. From there, you can jog north a quarter of a mile and enter the park by the Little League signs.
