Tour with Tammy: Grand Rapids Getaway!
05/18/2018 - 05/20/2018
Join Tammy’s Tastings in Grand Rapids for a weekend getaway highlighting the amazing food and drinks of this under-the-radar Michigan city. Limited to just 10 travelers and 2 guides, this tour includes lots of opportunities to interact with some of the city’s best bartenders, distillers, and chefs. Check out the plan below!
We can’t visit a place nicknamed Beer City USA without tasting some beer! We’ll kick things off mid-day with a tour and guided tasting at one of the city’s best breweries, followed by a late lunch in their taproom. Afterwards you’ll have time to check in to your downtown Grand Rapids hotel and get settled. We’ll work off lunch with a history-focused walking tour of the city’s downtown, followed by a strolling dinner as we explore a few of the city’s bars and eateries.
We’ll spend the morning at Long Road Distillers, creating our own gin! We’ll work with a distiller, tasting distillations of different botanicals and blending them into our own custom creation. You’ll also have a chance to learn about and taste their other spirits, and snacks from the kitchen will keep us fortified for our creative work! In the afternoon we’ll pay a visit to one of the city’s most interesting food producers. In the evening we’ll explore food pairings with a multi-course dinner where each course will be paired with samples of cocktails, beer, and/or wine. Which will pair best and win the food pairing challenge? We’ll be the judges.
Having explored beer, spirits and wine, we’ll round out our beverage consumption with a tasting and brunch at a local hard cider producer. Then it’s off to the world-renowned Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in the early afternoon for a guided tour before we bid each other a fond farewell!
