There are two kinds of people in this world; those who claim to like beer and those who declare their love for it. There are, however, the Kalamazooligans, a new breed of beer enthusiast whose love for brews borders on obsession. If this is you, don't miss the Brewer Newsmaker Series coming to Old Burdick’s, downtown Kalamazoo. This monthly series highlights local brewers' new projects, from packaged beers to anniversary parties to new facilities. The brewery will be the featured beer of the night, trivia will ensue, and you could even take away beer-related prizes. Let West Michigan Beer Tours get you through the winter.

  • November 16th - 6:00-7:30pm - One Well Brewing
