Harmony Brewing Company opens second location on Grand Rapids’ west side

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.– Another business is hoping to help revitalize Grand Rapids’ west side.

The owners of Harmony Brewing Companyin Eastown are expanding with the new Harmony Hall. The brewpub is housed in the former Little Mexico Restaurant, located at the corner of Stocking Street and Bridge Street NW.

Before it was a Mexican restaurant, the building was an old sausage-making factory, which is the inspiration behind Harmony Hall’s sausage-based menu. Sibling entrepreneurs Barry and Jackson Van Dyke, along with Heather Van Dyke Titus, say they are committed to keeping the building’s history.

One thing guests will notice is the size of the brewpub. It’s three-times larger that its Eastown counterpart, allowing for more brew space and requiring three-times more staff.

The Van Dykes are determined to treat both of their locations equally.

“We wanted to make sure we didn’t draw from our Eastown location,” said Van Dyke Titus.

“We want people to go there for wonderful wood fire pizzas. We want them to come [to Harmony Hall] for the sausages we make.”

Harmony Hall is open from 11am to midnight seven days a week.
