The Rockford Brewing Company is having a sale

The Rockford Brewing company is not expected to open for business until some time next year, but the company will soon have a product for sale.

The company first announced its logoed pint glasses and growlers for sale on its Facebook page and the details are available on the Brewing Company's main web page.

Rockford Brewing is a partnership between former Rockford Mayor Pro-Tem Brien Dews, Jeff Sheehan and Seth Rivard.

If all goes as planned, the business will open next spring at its location at 12 E. Bridge Street across from the Rockford Museum.

These Women Heat Up Restaurant Week!

These Women Heat Up Restaurant Week!

Out of a field of over 70 exemplary restaurants participating in Restaurant Week Grand Rapids this year there are 3 having female Executive Chefs. Talking to these insightful women on their career paths, we wondered if being in a mostly male dominated field has had any impact. What we learned is that these ambitious women have had an amazing and colorful culinary history. They share formal culinary training, yet they also learned the emotion of cooking from their extended family members (mothers, grandmothers, fathers, mothers-in-law and fathers-in-law) who taught them about food passed down from generation to generation.

Rockford's Corner Bar Getting Total Kitchen Makeover

When you've been in business as long as The Corner Bar in Rockford, sometimes things need to be updated.  The time has come for the Corner Bar's kitchen to get a facelift and the process will begin on November 6th.  Because of the extensive renovations, The Corner Bar will be closed starting on that date and is scheduled to reopen on Monday November 14th.  However, due to the nature of construction projects, the staff at The Corner Bar will be updating patrons on the kitchen's progress via the Corner Bar's Facebook fan page and via Twitter @rockfordcorner.  Let the chili dog hoarding begin.

Hanging out in … Rockford

Rockford is a cultural outpost, a culinary oasis, north of Grand Rapids. With tree-lined streets, cute shops and championship athletics, it is livable and sophisticated. Once you pass through Rockford, don't bother stopping until you get to Traverse City. Trust me.
