So, I am looking into planning a meeting place and a route for this drive. Personal I would like to stay out of downtown Grand Rapids (GR) to some extent just because it’s easy to get turned around and the parking for several cars like ours in one spot might be a little challenging. I am thinking meet outside GR have a late lunch, take a drive along the river to maybe another brewery or two and call it a day.
Does anyone have a “Must stop” brewery in the GR area. If not I’ll probably pick a few places I know are good, and make a plan. Founders, Atwater New Holland, ETC. are downtown and the parking is not great but I can make that work if I have to. I have been to them all, so I don’t really care.
Does everyone think they can be in the GR area by say Noon-1:00 on that Saturday? Most of us will have already logged some good seat time by then so, I’m thinking lunch and chill for a few hours to gather the group and stretch the legs. Maybe jump back in the car take ½ hr or so drive to someplace else stop for another drink, and maybe do one more drive/stop. Does anyone want to do a multi day trip?
