We began downtown Kzoo to meet and get started. My husband and I arrived with plenty of time to order awesome food before getting our brews on. We then headed... More

We did a private tour for my 40th, and West Michigan Beer Tour provided us a great time! They were great to work with in terms of planning it, answering questions and changing things as needed. It was well organized, and it was great to just be there to enjoy the day, rather than having to organize things myself. The... More

I was looking for an active, off-the-beaten-way to spend a Saturday afternoon..and lo behold found a way to tour 4 Kalamazoo breweries on bike! Never having been to Kalamazoo previously, I knew about Bell's and that's it. Although we did make it to Bell's (where home brewer and hot dog eating contests were being held, no less), the smaller breweries... More

I am not one to write reviews good or bad. In this case, I could not resist. $40 to walk through a rough part of town, drink just a couple taster size beers and see the brewing process of 2 tiny breweries could not have been a bigger disappointment. The first brewery we toured assigned a kid that clearly lacked... More

I was responsible for organizing my brothers bachelor party and we decided to rent a cabin in W. Michigan and hit up some breweries. At first we though about just figuring it out on our own and walking around to sample what Kalamazoo had to offer. After about 5 min of research it was clear that there was an overwhelming... More
