Grand Rapids has been featured in several beer magazines and was named “Beer City” for the number an quality of the breweries that call the city home. It only seems reasonable then to make arrangements for people visiting Grand Rapids for CAST to visit some of these establishments.
Monday evening, after the tutorials and before the conference begins, we are working on a “Tour” of some of the local breweries, including Founders, Mitten Brewing and Grand Rapids Brewing Company. This features a rotating shuttle from the venue to each of the locations, with around 15 minutes between each bus pulling up. The shuttles will run between 7:00 PM and 11:00 PM.
The per-person cost is $15 to cover the cost of the shuttle buses. This does not include any beer – just hassle-free transportation.
