The B.O.B. Celebrates Beer City USA's 2nd Annual Beer Week With Craft Beer Dinner

In celebration of Beer City U.S.A.’s (Grand Rapids’) 2nd Annual Beer Week, The BOB will be hosting a craft beer dinner featuring 14 Michigan breweries and food from Gilly’s on Thursday, Feb. 21, at 6:00 p.m.

The Beer Week tradition began after Grand Rapids was named Beer City USA in 2012,” explained Greg Gilmore, CEO of The Gilmore Collection. “This event gives people the opportunity to celebrate by trying craft beers from our own BOB’s Brewery, other Grand Rapids breweries, and many others from around the state.

Featured Michigan breweries include BOB’s Brewery, Dark Horse, Founders, New Holland, Brewery Vivant, Saugatuck Brewing, Perrin, Jaden James, Jolly Pumpkin, Schmohz, White Flame, Short's, Bell's, and Greenbush.

“We’ve created a unique experience that connects our exceptional local microbrew scene to Gilly’s delicious food options. It’s not often you get to try Amber Ale Mac and Cheese or Porter Brownies with Pale Ale Icing,” said The BOB General Manager, Carey McMahon.

Tickets are available for $25 and can be purchased online at or by calling 616-356-2000. A ticket includes dinner and four microbrew sampling tickets. Additional beer tasting tickets can be purchased for $1 each. Attendees will also have the chance to win one of five pairs of tickets to the sold out Michigan Winter Beer Festival at Fifth Third Ballpark.
