The brewery is bringing its German-inspired brews to Grand Rapids’s West Side

 

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. — Cedar Springs Brewing is bringing its German-inspired beers to a historically German neighborhood in Grand Rapids.

The brewery has announced plans to develop a second location on the city’s West Side at 642 Bridge Street NW.

Küsterer Brauhaus will join New Holland Brewing Company, Harmony Hall, Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales and the soon-to-come Arktos Meadery on Bridge Street.

The new location is named after Christoph Kusterer, who immigrated to Grand Rapids from Germany in 1844. Kusterer started a brewery in 1847 less than a mile away from what will become Küsterer Brauhaus in 2020.

“We’re excited to return Küsterer Bier to its historical roots, just down Bridge Street from the location of their original brewery and into the evolving ‘Brewery Row’ on the West Side,” said David Ringler, founder and Director of Happiness at Cedar Springs Brewing.

Cedar Springs Brewing opened its doors in Cedar Springs, Michigan in 2015. Heavily inspired by the German tradition of beer brewing, its menu features a mix of Bavarian-inspired food and drink and American pub fare and craft beer.

The new location promises a traditional and authentic German beer hall experience. It will serve the brewery’s signature Küsterer Biers, including traditional Bavarian hefeweizens and lagers, as well as Cedar Springs brand ales and location-specific beers.

“This area was home to several German and Central European beer halls prior to Prohibition, so we look forward to creating a traditional, Munich-style hall as a positive contribution to this vibrant neighborhood,” Ringler said.

Küsterer Brauhaus will have its own three-barrel brewery on site, manufactured in the U.S.A. by Fronhofer Design. The project is being developed by Weber Developments, LLC.

The popular local market will kick off on Thursday, June 20

 

CEDAR SPRINGS, MI  — Cedar Springs Brewing Company has announced that its summer farmers market will return for the third year.

The market will take place on Thursdays from 3-7 p.m. starting June 20 and running through September. Vendors will set up in the Heart of Cedar Springs—a grass lot behind the fire station on Maple Street in Cedar Springs near the German-inspired brewery.

The local market features vendors from all over West Michigan selling fruits, vegetables and other value-added homemade products. This year’s edition will welcome new vendors as well as returning favorites such as Newton’s Family Farm, Dorothy and Toto’s Kettle Corn and Busy Mom Bakers.

Pets are also welcome to accompany their owners to the market.

“Bring your leashed fur babies for an afternoon of shopping!” Ringler said.

The CSBrew Farmers Market will coincide with the brewery’s popular recurring Jeep Night—a gathering of Jeep enthusiasts featuring live music and product displays. This summer’s Jeep Night series will begin June 20 at 6:00 p.m.

More community events at the market will be unveiled throughout the summer.

A new event series launching this summer, Dream Ride Night, will celebrate classic, modified and fun rides on two or four wheels. It will begin June 18th.

“Keep an eye on our website and social media for updates on upcoming market events,” Ringler  said.

The CSBrew Farmers Market is currently looking for sponsors. If you or your business is interested in sponsoring the market, or a market event, please reach out to opportunity@csbrew.com for more information.

cedar spring brewingCEDAR SPRINGS, MICH – Cedar Springs Brewing Company, a German-inspired restaurant and brewery, is pleased to announce they will be hosting a new local Farmers Market on Thursday mornings starting on June 8. CSBrew Farmers Market, running from 8AM to 12PM weekly, will offer fresh, seasonal produce from local area farmers to everyone in the community.

“We’ve celebrated local since before we’ve opened our doors, and we’ve been grateful to the City of Cedar Springs, the Cedar Springs Area Chamber of Commerce and other local markets for working with us to bring this weekly farmer’s market into the Heart of Cedar Springs on Thursday mornings.” David Ringler, Director of Happiness at Cedar Springs Brewing Co., shares, “We hope this becomes an asset to the entire community and our guests should enjoy some of the daily specials Chef Shaun will be preparing using these seasonal ingredients.”

Due to the recent closure of area markets such as the long running Plainfield Township Farmers Market and the Solon Township Farmers Market, Ringler and crew realized that there was a now a need for a community hub to source seasonal and local produce. Working closely with the City of Cedar Springs and area farmers to fill the void left by these closures, Cedar Springs Brewing took the lead in making sure that both farmers and customers were provided with a place to sell and purchase nutritional, affordable and fresh fruits and vegetables.

German Translation: Grand Opening Celebration

CEDAR SPRINGS – Cedar Springs Brewing Company, a German-inspired, family-friendly microbrewery will soon be warming the heart of Main Street in Cedar Springs.

The brewery’s grand opening celebration will begin on Friday, Nov. 13 at 1 p.m. with a ribbon cutting and ceremonial first pour.

The festivities will continue throughout the weekend as they unveil the full menu for the first time. While Head Chef and “Curator of Culinary Creation” Shaun Wooden’s main focus will be traditional Bavarian cuisine, the menu will feature a wide variety of food, including a kid’s menu. Once inside, Grand Rapids natives may recognize panels from the former downtown Schnitzelbank restaurant within the microbrewery walls; a nod to the rich German history within Beer City.

The microbrewery will offer a unique bar menu featuring Lagers, Pilsners, Hefeweizens, Pale Ales… oh my! alongside Cedar Cider and Vino131 Wine. For the under-21 group and drivers among us, Cedar Springs Brewing is also offering Old Cedar Creek soda, which includes almost as many flavors as the styles on their beer tap list. The tap list will be updated in real-time on their Facebook page, complete with information on how much of each style of beer is actually left, thanks to the wonderful world of technology – and digitalpour.com

Cedar Springs Brewing’s Head Brewer and “Barley, Malt and Hops Wrangler” Matt Peterson is utilizing traditional German open-fermentation methods to brew Lagers, and will also brew Ales on their 15-barrel brew system with a capacity of 1500 barrels per year. The brewing system didn’t have far to travel, as it came from Psycho Brew out of Belding, Michigan.

In the spring, a Bier Garden will feature a brick patio with trees and tables that will expand seating and face the White Pine Trail, greeting runners, bikers, and even snowmobilers in the winter.

Since Owner and ”Director of Happiness” David Ringler broke ground on this authentic German microbrewery back in October 2014, his goal remains the same: to be a family-friendly, laid-back restaurant, and microbrewery for the community of Cedar Springs—a place where friends can get together to enjoy a meal and a beer after a sporting event, or heading in or out of Beer City, Grand Rapids.

Cedar Springs Brewing Company is located at 95 North Main Street in Cedar Springs.
