Kalamazoo’s first Beer Week

Detroit tried it first; now, it’s Kalamazoo’s turn. Kalamazoo will start the new year off right with their first-ever Beer Week, running January 10 through 14, 2011. Carrying on a great new tradition that’s a proven two-time winner in Detroit, beer tastings, drink specials at venues around the city, opportunities to meet with brewers and more will all be on tap in Kalamazoo. These events are inspired by and scheduled to coincide with the Winter Conference and Annual Meeting of the Michigan Brewers Guild, which will take place in Kalamazoo on January 12 through 14. What’s important is that these events aren’t simply celebrations of getting shit-faced; they’re planned to support and increase an appreciation of Michigan craft beer.

Of course Bell’s and Olde Peninsula Brewpub will be featured during the week, as will Battle Creek’s Arcadia Ales. Various venues around Kalamazoo, including the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange, Central City Tap House, Harvey’s on the Mall, Martini’s Pizza and The Strutt, will also join in the fun.
