Owners Kris and Jason Spaulding explain that Broad Leaf will have a more natural vibe than Brewery Vivant. They will be experimenting with a variety of beers outside their ‘farmhouse specialty’. Their menu will feature different items as well.
The overall design of the new location will also evoke a natural aesthetic. The 25,000 square foot space will include on-site brewing, a 99 seat taproom, and retail space. On a block with big box retailers and chain restaurants, the owners are hoping the new brewery stands out by offering a unique atmosphere.
The new brewery will be located at 2885 Lake Eastbrook Blvd. SE in Kentwood with potential of a May 1st opening. They are currently accepting job applications online.
