The 3rd annual WGRD Summer Craft Beer festival took over John Ball Park in Grand Rapids on Saturday (August 17). 33 breweries offered over 100 different types of brews for attendees to enjoy. Check out our photo gallery of the festival below.

The GRD Summer Craft Beer Festival featured Michigan staples like Founders Brewing Co., Bell’s Brewery, Dark Horse Brewery, Short’s Brewing Co., New Holland Brewing, Atwater Brewery and more. Delicious food was available from Arturo’s Tacos, Johnsonville Sausages, Big O’ Cafe, Fat Johnny’s Cheesesteak and Brann’s Steakhouse and Sports Grille.

Beer drinkers were entertained by live music from GRD Rocktagon Throwdown finalist Devin and the Dead Frets, whose set comprised of awesome original material and covers. Their rendition of the White Stripes‘ “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground” was stellar.

We want to thank everyone who attended the Summer Craft Beer Festival this year. We also want to thank our sponsors Kalamazoo Vapor Shop, Gun Lake Casino, Guitar Center, Michigan Critical Power and T-Shirt Wonders. See you in 2014!
