On Saturday, February 4 Harmony Brewing Company will celebrate its fifth year of being in business with a party and a limited edition bottle release of their annual brew ‘Birthday Barleywine’. Other festivities include an hour of family fun from 12:30-1:30 with a new brunch menu and popular kid friendly magician and comedian, PJ Weber. The celebration will continue into the night with the Vinyl Night All Stars featuring a lineup of the most popular DJ’s from Harmony’s weekly event, Vinyl Thursday.
Siblings Heather Van Dyke-Titus, Barry Van Dyke and Jackson Van Dyke opened Harmony Brewing Company in February 2012. The popular Eastown brewpub quickly became a local favorite. Overwhelming demand required the Van Dyke’s to expand production and open a second location, Harmony Hall on Grand Rapids’ West Side.

Co-owner, Jackson Van Dyke says, “It’s been an amazing five years. Opening Harmony gave us the opportunity to pursue things that we’re truly passionate about: inventive and creative beer, simple but delicious food and being a part of building our community and city. Since we’ve opened, Harmony has been a part of and witnessed, Grand Rapids being recognized as Beer City USA, a national and even global beer destination. It’s been an honor to be a founding member and President of the Beer City Brewers Guild. I appreciate the opportunity to help grow and expand Grand Rapid’s Beer culture and Harmony’s place in it. “
