Brewer’s Grove Planting & Party in the Park!

October 19 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Meet the minds behind the annual Brewer’s Grove Tree Beer(s), plant a tree with your favorite Grand Rapids Area Brewers, and enjoy beer  at this year’s BREWERS GROVE PLANTING AND PARTY IN RIVERSIDE PARK! 

Along with being funded by our Tree Beer program and local breweries, this project is also sponsored by DTE Energy. Thank you DTE Energy!

The trees planted will improve tree diversity, provide a source of food to wildlife and park users, and replace removed ash trees lost due to the Emerald Ash Borer epidemic. Every hand that digs deep into the spirit of community will be greatly appreciated; the efforts of volunteers are what helps drive these events and programs.

Please don’t forget that this is a party, and an open-container permit is in place for this event! Stop by your favorite Grand Rapids area brewery and pick up a growler, howler, crowler, cans or bottles of beer or cider to share!

1 – 3 PM Tree Planting

3 – 3:15 PM Thank-you to our volunteers and brewers

3:15 – 5 PM- Crack open a brew and enjoy it in the park! Chat with brewers and brewery staff and brainstorm tree-themed ingredients and beer for the 2019 Tree Beer (which will be released mid-February, 2019)!
