Since a portion of the WZZM 13 ArtPrize set showcases pieces of what has become known as Beer City USA, we thought it would be fitting to highlight our craft beer scene with a "Beer of the Day."

Heather Vredevoogd, head brewer from Hideout Brewing Co., joined Jennifer Pascua on the Noon News, Thursday, Oct. 6, with the "Chocolate Rye with Spice."

The Chocolate Rye with Spice is our fall seasonal flavor, available in the tap room both on draft and in 22 oz. bottles, as well as in 22 oz. bottles at various bottle shops around town.

IBU: ABV: 6.9%

While dark in color, this rye ale is surprisingly light in body, getting the color from chocolate malt, cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. This combination creates a cookie-like flavor, without being overly sweet.

Hideout Brewing Co. is located at 3113 Plaza Dr. NE in Grand Rapids. For more information, click here.
