Built out of a strong English heritage, Grand Junction Brewing Co. is focused on brewing traditional, true-to-style beers, with a heavy European influence. As a company, Grand Junction Brewing Co. represents the antithesis of the big corporate brewery, a true mom and pop success story. Grand Junction Brewing Co. was Westfield’s first brewery, opening up their family-friendly, full-service brew pub on Union St. in downtown Westfield back in 2014. In addition to the numerous award-winning beers they produce, they are well-known for giving back to their community. Rock The Junction, a craft beer & music festival created by Grand Junction Brewing Co. in 2016, is the largest single day event in downtown Westfield every year. All of the net proceeds from this event go to fund scholarships at Westfield High School and to other charities in the area.
Their second location, located off of 181st street, just outside of the Grand Park Sports Complex is Grand Junction Brewing – The Tap Room . This location houses their full production and distribution facility. In addition to the production side, this facility also houses a large tap room and event space that is open to the public, complete with an outdoor music stage. If you’re hungry, they often have locally-sourced BBQ that is hickory-smoked onsite or a rotating number of local food trucks on the weekends.
