Beer City USA: The Best 10 Pounds I’ve Ever Gained

By Hayley Panagakis, October 12, 2015

OK, maybe I didn’t gain 10 pounds, but with all the mouth-watering food and beverage options dished up during my stay in Grand Rapids, Michigan—also known as Beer City USA—it’s a surprise I could still fit in my seat on the flight home to Atlanta. Restaurants like JW Marriott Grand Rapids’ and Amway Grand Plaza Hotel’s new The Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck made mixing seasoned dishes and savory delights an artform—very appropriate as the city hosted its seventh annual ArtPrize competition featuring more than 1,500 works across more than 160 downtown venues.

Here are a few dining experiences planners should consider for their next meeting in Grand Rapids.
