Kalamazoo Craft Beverage Week

KBW is expanding in 2021 and is now Kalamazoo Craft Beverage Week! The goal is to include even more of our Kalamazoo makers—- adding our local distilleries and wineries to join in with our breweries and feature the craft beverage industry as a whole! Some of us already share this passion: an affinity for hand-crafted products, made by people who care about an enriching experience and carefully fashioned flavor profiles. But some are newer to their understanding of how amazing craft beer, spirits, and wine can be.

 

Kalamazoo Craft Beverage Week remains a weeklong series of events that celebrate the craft beverage industry. Patrons will meet the brewers, distillers, or winemakers themselves, learn about what it takes to develop these kinds of intricate, highly desired products, and hopefully achieve a greater sense of the craft beverage industry.

 

Health and Safety Updates:

Health and safety is a priority, and we’re working hard with our partners to execute a safe event amid current precautions and restrictions. While we currently cannot have any large events as part of the week, like bar crawls or festival style gatherings, there are safe ways to still enjoy our local craft beverages!

Check up top for “specials” where participating breweries, distilleries, and bars have listed their various to-go options and links for ordering, as a way to encourage support for local partners amid the current pause on indoor dining. As the event draws closer, we will work to add specific activities for the event week, based on the restrictions at the time. Whether we have virtual meet the brewer sessions, or hybrid activities that include a to-go pairing guided through an online class, the focus is all on highlighting our local partners and supporting our craft beverage industry in any way we can.
