GR{KNOW} | Wise Men Distillery To Open New Location In Downtown Grand Rapids

If you are a fan of Wise Men Distillery some good news coming your way. The owners have plans to open a new location in downtown Grand Rapids. Find out more about what to expect in 2020.

Future Location | 146 Monroe Center St. NW {in McKay Tower}

Estimated Opening | First Quarter of 2020

Speciality | Craft Micro Distillery – Vodka, Gin, Rum & Natural Flavored Moonshines

Wise Men Distillery is known for crafting great tasting spirits including white whisky, rum, moonshine and gin. They recently opened over the summer at 4717 Broadmoor Ave SE. At 700 square feet, the downtown location will serve as an intimate tasting room for their fine beverages.

The owners are very excited about their new development and wanted to expand since their opening. Now they are looking forward to bringing a tasting room to the downtown area, right by Rosa Parks circle, one of Grand Rapids’ most lively hubs.

The tasting room project still needs to secure several local and state approvals. Wise Men Distillery hopes to open its doors during the first quarter of 2020. This will be one of many tasting rooms opening in the Grand Rapids area, as Liquor Control Code has recently updated to allow distilleries to open up to five tasting rooms in addition to their manufacturing premises. 

The downtown tasting room will have décor that is similar to that of the existing distillery – reclaimed barn wood and tin details. It is sure to be an attractive and lively addition to the area. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all things #GRANDNEW with this project!
