New Brewery Planned South of Rockford
Another brewery is coming to West Michigan!
MiBiz reports that Third Nature Brewing Co. plans to open a microbrewery in the Rockford area. The site is at 7733 Childsdale Ave. NE, near the Rogue River.
Rockford native and partner Chad Zitzelsberger told MiBiz,
“We love the location. Just being out in nature, we want to give people that kind of experience... We plan to have a beautiful beer garden out in the woods, a place where you can drink a beer outside, spend an afternoon and play games."
The project is a family affair, with Zitslesberger partnering with his brother-in-law Bryce Roebke, and brother Troy Zitzelsberger, who founded Hop Mori Brewing Co. in Seoul, South Korea in 2015.
Last week the township Planning Commission approved Third Nature's plans.
So far company has filed for micro brewer and small wine make licenses, and indicated in a business plan that they may pursue a distillery license to sell liquor.
Zitslesberger says they'll spend the next couple months formalizing their plans.
