    They have a beautiful location up there.

    I'm kind of surprised they haven't opened up anything on the west side of the state yet.

    i really love JP but i can't imagine sobre GR actually being any good. in bottles, the regular version was great fresh but just got more and more acidic as it aged and lost the complexity that the fresh beer had. i can't possibly imagine that extra time in oak or in the bottle would actually have helped it any.

    I love that JP doesn't get the love but it's also sad in a way ...

    i hope that's a new batch, because fresh batch 1 was really fucking good. it didn't age all that well though, all the flavours just kind of ran together into nothing but sour.

    Has it been mentioned that plans/zoning are in the approval process for a JP taproom in Grand Rapids? It will be on the Bridge Street corridor near the new(er) Harmony Hall and New Holland Knickerbocker. They will make a nice addition to our local scene. I just hope someone puts up a 10 story parking garage down there soon because parking is a serious issue in that particular area.
