Add this to the [growing] list of "new places I need to drink at" in Grand Rapids.

7 Monks Taproom, a Traverse City-based Gastropub, is opening a new location in Grand Rapids on April 21st.

It was announced almost a year ago that 7 Monks would be coming to G.R. and the time has finally come! 7 Monks will be at 740 Michigan St. NE. Fox 17 says that 7 Monks will have 51 rotating taps including seasonal beers, Michigan beers and beers from all around the world.

The grand opening will feature beers that have been specially brewed for 7 Monks. Gastropub food with local Michigan flavors will also be featured. Since they don't have the GR menu on their website yet, here's the one from Traverse City which looks really yummy!

7 Monks Taproom is also known for their Friar's Union membership which will be offered in Grand Rapids (Mittenbrew.com). The membership gets you $1 off their drafts for life, invitations to special events, a t-shirt cuz who doesn't love those, plus more!

Grand Rapids will be the third location for 7 Monks. They opened in Boyne City last summer.

7 Monks Taproom will officially open at 4 p.m. on FriYAY, April 21st. Their regular hours after the 23rd will be:

  • Monday - Thursday: 3p - 12a
  • Friday & Saturday: 11a - 12a
  • Sunday - 11a - 10p

According to Fox 17, they will start opening for lunch beginning June 1st.
