A beloved Grand Rapids educator is being remembered through a beer, brewed by a local business he had invested in.
City Built Brewing Company is coming out with a special release Double IPA in honor of Lester Ott. Ott was killed in a motorcycle crash in April 2016 near the U-S 131 "S" curve in downtown Grand Rapids.
Leaders from City Built say he was a larger than life person who encouraged people around him to keep pushing forward.
Along with the tribute beer a City Built work shirt will be retired in Ott's memory.
