Grand Rapids is known as "Beer City USA" and for good reason.

There are more than 40 craft breweries within a 30-minute drive.

Some of my favorites included Founders and Perrin.

Sadly a West Michigan brewery has made the difficult decision to close the doors of its Grand Rapids location.

Owners Jason & Kris Spaulding posted the tough decision on Facebook.

*PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT*It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closure of Broad Leaf Westside on Bridge Street. Despite giving it a solid effort over the past year, the business never materialized as we had hoped. Our last day open will be on January 13th – your final opportunity to join us for video games, indulge in our homemade bao buns and savor our specialty cocktails. Help us end on a high note by dropping in to say hi to our amazing crew.In 2024, we are channeling our focus towards Brewery Vivant and Broad Leaf Kentwood, now featuring newly opened indoor Pickleball courts.

While the Bridge Street space is available for immediate occupancy by a new tenant, we're excited about the possibility of collaborating with incubator kitchens for private events for as long as we hold the lease. If you're a business seeking a space for your event, reach out to us at for more details.

Thank you for all your support on our journey. While we value the moments created at Broad Leaf Westside, we're excited about the new adventures that lie ahead.Best,

Jason & Kris Spaulding- Owners
