Are you a long-time lover of craft beer? New to the scene? Kalamazoo Beer Week is the event for you!
Kalamazoo Beer Week offers a whole host of special, one-time-only experiences … all week long.
How it works:
Kalamazoo’s independently-owned and -operated restaurants and retail locations pair up with craft breweries/brewers to develop unique craft beer events for attendees. Once a Kalamazoo Beer Week event is confirmed, we will update the calendar at www.kalamazoobeerweek.com (hint: you might want to bookmark that link now)! Plan your week, plot your course, and let these brews take your palate to beer heaven.
With an intent to educate people about the craft beer movement, brew styles, or the industry at large, all Kalamazoo Beer Week events are open to the public. Some events require reservations, which will be noted on the Website (ex: most beer dinners), but often, most functions are open-house style.
Started in 2011 by Imperial Beverage, the first Kalamazoo Beer Week had less than 20 events. The 2012 event saw more than 100 events. With pub crawls, tap takeovers, beer-paired dinners, special tastings, meet-the-brewer events, beer trivia games — happening all in one week — it’s no wonder that Kalamazoo Beer Week was all the buzz around Kalamazoo and beyond. And Kalamazoo Beer Week 2013 only looks to get cheerier, as organizers are brainstorming craft-beer-related experiences for novice to Einstein-level beer geeks alike. So, get ready to sample some tasty brews, mingle with other craft beer drinkers, and rub elbows with your fav brewers.
