David, who spent many years in Germany brings an authentic knowledge to create German-style beers at Küsterer (and sister brewery Cedar Springs Brewing) in a unique and memorable setting.

Stay tuned for our next episode of A Quick Beer which will focus on the rest of Grand Rapids’s thriving beer scene. Special thanks to Experience Grand Rapids for the assistance in coordinating this trip.
