First Anniversary Celebration

Can you believe it’s been a year already?!?

We’d like to invite you all to stop by the weekend of November 4-6 to help us celebrate ONE YEAR of Gemütlichkeit in Cedar Springs!

Over the past year, we’ve seen numerous milestones:
* Cedar Springs Brewing is the premier German-style brewery in the area and one of the few in Michigan focusing on Bavarian beer styles and cuisine. Our Küsterer brand is a reference to the original German brewer in the region, dating to 1844. The family founded the first Grand Rapids Brewing Company in 1892.
* Cedar Springs Brewing was named in the Top 5 for MLive’s “Best New Brewery in Michigan” search
* CSBrew was recently named “Best Brewery in West Michigan” by WZZM 13
* Küsterer Original Weissbier was featured as MLive’s “Beer of the Week” in July 2016.
* CSIPA was featured as MLive’s “Beer of the Week” in August 2016.
* Küsterer Original Weissbier was awarded a medal at the 2016 Great American Beer Festival “South German Style Wheat Ale
* Our Cedar Springs Brewing Famous Fried Chicken was named among the best in the state by MLive: LINK
* Our Community Give Back Program, donations and local fund-raising has generated over $5,000 for our community!
We’ve seen the Community Building Development Team break ground on the new “Heart of Cedar Springs“ next door.
* Küsterer Bier is now on tap throughout West Michigan, from the lakeshore, through Grand Rapids and up to Traverse City and Charlevoix.

We remain grateful for all your support and we’ll look forward to an even better year #2!

Thank you und “Danke.”

Overview: Great American Beer Festival Competition

In a ceremony at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, prestigious gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded to winning breweries in 96 beer categories covering 161 different beer styles (including all subcategories), establishing the best examples of each style in the country. Neither a gold nor a silver medal were awarded in the Pumpkin/Squash Beer category.

Winners were chosen from 7,227 competition entries (nearly 9 percent more than the 6,647 entries in 2015 and surpassing all previous participation records) from 1,752 breweries hailing from 50 states plus Washington, D.C.

The competition also saw its biggest-ever panel of judges, with 264 beer experts from 12 countries, including the U.S., and 170 competition volunteers. The panel also evaluated 88 Pro-Am entries, which were judged in three rounds over four days. For a complete list of winners:

Our winning category included five distinct styles: German-Style Wheat Ale a. Subcategory: South German-Style Kristal Weizen

  2. Subcategory: South German-Style Bernsteinfarbenes (antique) Weizen

Küsterer Original Weissbier was the highest rated beer in Subcategory C: Bernsteinfarbenes Weizen. Silver and Gold were awarded to Dunkel Weizen and Weizenbock, respectively.

“We are immensely proud to have brought home this award to Cedar Springs and Beer City, USA in our first competition,” stated owner David Ringler. “We are passionate about this style, along with Bavarian brewing traditions, and we continue to strive to get better every day. We thank everyone who has supported us along the way as this wouldn’t be possible without them.”
