57 Reasons to Live in West Michigan Reason #7: Breweries

Beer enthusiasts know that West Michigan is home to some world-class brews. In downtown Grand Rapids, microbrewer Founders Brewing is housed in an old trucking facility. Our oldest brew-pub, Grand Rapids Brewing Company, was once the largest producer of beer in West Michigan (until Prohibition shut them down). Over on the lakeshore, there's New Holland Brewing Company in a handsome 1927 tavern in the charming downtown retail district. A little farther south, Saugatuck Brewing Company serves the crowd-favorite, Oval Beach Blonde Ale, which pays tribute to a spectacular local beach, Oval Beach, rated "One of the Top 5 Most Beautiful Beaches in the U.S." by MTV (and they should know).
