Patience is a Virtue
We're busy planning the events for Kalamazoo Beer Week 2015, so bookmark this page and check back often. You'll be glad you did.
Plot Your Course
Otherwise known as search for events. We'll give you the whole list of events here....but if you'd rather search by category, breweries, venues or date, we'll make it easy to do. You'll be able to simply set the search parameters (on the right side of your screen) to a specific category, brewery or venue. Then click go. It's as simple (and awesome) as that.
Take Care of the People Taking Care of You
Be understanding of large crowds. These events are hosted in popular restaurants and retail establishments. These locations staff up for special events like this one, but please be prepared to wait, if necessary. Remember, a kind word goes a long way, and your patience is appreciated!
Take Care of Yourself
This event focuses on craft beer, but not on its abuse. Please be responsible about your consumption. If you are attending events in a large group, have a designated driver. Or, call a cab.
