City Built Brewing announces plans for October opening

BY MiBiz Staff Wednesday, August 10, 2016 02:25pm

GRAND RAPIDS — City Built Brewing Company LLC said today in a statement that it had installed its 10-barrel brewing system and plans to be open by early October.

The brewery, planned for 820 Monroe Ave. NW on the ground floor of the 616 Lofts on Monroe mixed-use development, will be the first brewery in the Monroe North neighborhood since Founders Brewing Co. moved downtown in 2007.

Much of the beer will consist of fruit-infused ancient ales and the food menu will feature Puerto Rican and “island inspired plates,” according to the statement.

The brewery owners — Edwin Collazo and David Petroelje — previously told MiBiz they project to brew between 320 and 500 barrels of beer per year and create approximately 40 new jobs.

Collazo and Petroelje tapped Grand Rapids-based Lott3Metz Architecture LLC for design services for the space. Grand Rapids-based Honor Professional Management Inc. served as construction manager.
