National Moonshine Brand Investing BIG in Their Grand Rapids Roots
We love when national businesses and brands invest in the area where they were started.
That is exactly what Sip Shine is doing in the Grand Rapids area.
Founded in 2019, the Grand Rapids-located moonshine brand, Sip Shine is expanding its presence and reach in West Michigan.
Sip Shine will open a lounge, making it the first Nashville-style tasting room and restaurant.
The Sip Shine Lounge will be located where the old Harmony Brewings' Harmony Hall was on the corner of Stocking Avenue and Bridge Street.
The Sip Shine Lounge will allow the public to sample and purchase Sip Shine products in one location for the first time EVER.
What does a "true Nashville experience" have to do with Grand Rapids?
That simply means you can experience the beauty and tastes of Nashville without leaving the state.
According to a comment Sip Shine left on their official Facebook,
"The true Nashville experience is being able to come to the Sip Shine Lounge and feel like you're in Nashville with Nashville-inspired food, tasting room, and entertainment! You have [to] come check it out and see!"
Besides the fact that you can buy Sip Shine products at the new lounge, you can also choose a meal from their Nashville-inspired menu.
Sip Shine's Marketing Director, Nick Rice, says
"We wanted to bring a new food and entertainment experience to Grand Rapids, not only will the food be top notch but this true Nashville experience will transform you."
It will transform us? That is a big claim that I am excited to see if it is true.
Along with the new lounge, Sip Shine also announced that they will be bringing their spirits production back to Michigan!
Sip Shine has formed a partnership with Wise Men Distillery, a well-known local Michigan distiller.
"We are excited to partner with Wise Men to move production back home to West Michigan. Sip Shine is committed to sourcing the highest quality Michigan ingredients and this partnership will allow us to continue to produce the best possible product for our customers while also supporting our hometown economy."
If you are as excited as I am for the Sip Shine new lounge and their partnership with Wise Men Distillery, you are in luck.
The Sip Shine tasting room and restaurant are expected to open next spring. The best part is they will start production in Michigan this month.
