A celebration of local craft spirits is coming back to Grand Rapids.

The fourth-annual Cocktail Week GR kicks off this Wednesday and runs until Nov. 18.

The event highlights local distillers, special Cocktail Week GR menus, dish pairings and events organized by the U.S. Bartending Guild’s Grand Rapids chapter.

The 12-day event will feature 38 participating distilleries and restaurants.

Cocktail Week GR culminates with the 11th-annual Grand Rapids International Wine, Beer & Food Festival at DeVos Place Convention Center downtown from Nov. 15-17.

The festival will have an expanded spirits collection compared to previous years, which will be held in the center's Hemingway Hall.
