Starkbierfest!

STARKBIERFEST! 

Saturday, April 7th, from 3-9 p.m.

Cedar Springs Brewing Company is proud to host the third annual STARKBIERFEST!
Raise a toast in our heated tent with live music, limited beer release, and #SAUSAGEPARTY. Rain or shine, this strong beer adventure is sure to be your spring break highlight.

Besides the famous Oktoberfest, Starkbierfest (“Strong Beer Festival”)  is the second big German beer festival time during the year. Historically, monks brewed strong beer or Bockbier which was higher in calories and a bit stronger to substitute for food during Lenten fasting. This “Liquid Bread” and annual brewing specialties have survived the times and re-emerged at your friendly, neighborhood Brewing Company. So join us at this year’s “little Oktoberfest” on Saturday, April 7th in our parking lot for amazing beverages, food and music.

Cedar Springs Brewing Company Wins Three Titles at London World Beer Awards

The awards are the latest in a string of international competitions to recognize the brewery

CEDAR SPRINGS, MI – August 25, 2017 The World Beer Awards announced August 10 that Cedar Springs Brewing Company took three “Best in the U.S.” titles in the international competition.

The awards were for their Küsterer Original Weissbier, named “Best Bavarian Hefeweiss” in the U.S., Küsterer Salzburger Märzen, named “Best Seasonal German Pale” in the U.S. and Küsterer Weizenbock, named “Best Strong Wheat Beer” in the U.S.

The contest is the third international competition the two-year-old brewery has entered and placed in.
“It is our goal to create a world-class destination here in Cedar Springs, Michigan,” said the brewery’s Director of Happiness David Ringler, “and we are thrilled to once again have been recognized for the quality of our Bavarian and German style beers by an international judging organization.”

The World Beer Awards are a global competition selecting the “very best in all internationally recognized styles.” Judges from around the world tasted 1900 entries from 36 countries.

“Very few Americans have had the chance to truly experience some of these styles if they haven’t traveled to Europe,” Ringler said. “That’s why it’s our goal to create true-to-style Bavarian brews here in the U.S.”

The recent awards are heartening for Cedar Springs, as evidence of their success.

“We want to do justice to these styles,” Ringler said, “And we’ve been fortunate to beat some of the breweries that are viewed as the gold standards.”

“It’s amazing to be included in that conversation,” he said.
