Beer City USA has definitely made its mark, especially in the craft brew space. Third Nature Brewing Co. may be #GRANDNEW to the brewery scene, but plans to give West Michigan residents another reason to take a detour into Rockford. This rustic brewery and taproom will be hosting its grand opening on October 28. Learn more about why you should be marking this date on your calendars.

Grand Opening | Monday, October 28

Location | 7733 Childsdale Ave NE {where White Pine Trail meets the Rogue River}

Speciality | Creative, Innovative & Unique Craft Beer

Head Brewer and Owner, Troy Zitzelsberger

Third Nature Brewing Company is the brainchild of brothers and self-proclaimed beer nerds Troy and Chad Zitzelsberger. As outdoor enthusiasts, the brothers feel the location in Rockford is perfect for their brewery that provides a rugged experience for like minded guests. Rest assured the brewery in good hands as Troy Zitzelberger is a certified cicerone and the former owner of Hop Mori Brewing Company in Seoul, S. Korea. He closed the company to start Third Nature with his brother.

The facility sits on 7.5 acres of land and will have a taproom that features 12 to 15 beers – including specialty and seasonal rotations. The food menu will offer comfort foods like pizza and hot sandwiches, as well as healthier options with power bowls and salads.

In honor of the grand opening, the owners are providing a limited offer for a Third Nature Mug Club Membership. Perks include a private event with the head brewer, one of a kind t-shirts, personalized mugs along with specials and discounts in the restaurant. The membership is currently sold out and will hopefully be made available again in the future.

The grand opening of Third Nature is being met with much excitement and those interested in attending should stay up to date by following the company’s business page on Facebook. In the meantime, the West Michigan community looks forward to the start of a terrific new brewery. We wish the Zitzelberger Brothers the best of luck in their future endeavors.
