KBW is expanding to include all of our local craft beverage scene, with the addition of our distilleries and wineries. Now known as Kalamazoo Craft Beverage Week, we look forward to highlighting and celebrating our local makers!
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 like bar crawls or festival style gatherings, there are safe ways to still enjoy our craft beverages!
You’ll notice a new section on our site for “Specials”. This year, we’re making it easier to find the types of activities you’re looking for. On the Specials tab, you’ll see offers from our partners that are on-going throughout the week so you can stop in at your leisure or order out for to-go options to enjoy at home! Under the Events tab, you’ll find activities set up for specific days/times, and some may have pre-registration required to abide by current capacity limitations.
And if you haven’t heard, downtown Kalamazoo now offers the Central Commons Refreshment Area! This outdoor social district allows people to bring drinks purchased from licensed establishments and taken them between locations within the boundaries of the commons area. This is a great option to enjoy your craft beverages outdoors in a safe, socially distant manner while supporting our local businesses.
