We decided to use the brew bus and discovered this gem. The staff was very friendly and Dan was happy to give us a tour of the brewery. The beer was tasty and the atmosphere was relaxing. I will come back for sure.

I have been a regular at for some time now. I enjoy Boatyards craft beer and despite their small menu, the food is pretty good too. Dan (one of the owners) is usually willing to give a FREE tour of his brewery. Very few places...More

The customer service here was amazing. They explained the brewery "passport" and tag-a-brew. The beer was good and it was a great time!!!

We actually walked out before sampling the food or beer. Very unfriendly staff who couldn't be bothered to welcome us. It's real hard to tell where the food is being made, so the menu wasn't very appetizing. The beer we wanted to try wasn't on...More

Small place. Staff not very friendly. It was inconvenient to take them away from the conversations they were having with the men at the bar. If you want a table you first order your beer at the bar, go to the other side of the...More

Whenever we are in Kalamazoo- it's always on our list of things to do while visiting. They make a tone of different beer (altogether) and normally have a great verity on tap. My husband and I have different taste in beer- so it's a win...More

This was our second visit to Boatyard. The owners are great guys, very fun, and they seem to enjoy interacting with their guests (unlike other breweries in the area). The beer is phenominal ! Cannot wait to visit again !

Well crafted beer, but your typical craft beer selection with a hint of creativity. No stout or porters. My favorite was the Juan to Party. I would go here again when in the area. Pretty basic facility. Food is available and they do have outdoor...More
