West Michigan Beer Tours is proud to be partnering with Discover Kalamazoo and the rest of our sponsors for walking tours of downtown Kalamazoo breweries. Dubbed one of the Top 10 walking tours in the country by Paste Magazine, this casual afternoon will introduce you to some of the colorful personalities and flavors behind Kalamazoo's beer culture.
For a December twist, we are collaborating with a few downtown Kalamazoo retailers that carry a series of beer-related gifts -- everything from bottle openers to ornaments to beer cap maps and more. We'll curate the stops with some steep discounts, bogo specials, giveaways and more.
Downtown Kalamazoo recently added "Common Areas" where people can consume to-go beverages in officially marked cups from licensed bars and restaurants. We'll partner with Old Burdick's inside the Radisson Plaza Hotel, which has a to-go license, and explore the Kalamazoo Mall before heading to a pair of downtown breweries.
They are held every Saturday year-round in downtown Kalamazoo. Learn about the craft beer in Kalamazoo, enjoy sampling some of the best beers in the world, and meet the personalities behind the beer. NOTE: Tours will require a minimum of 6 attendees to be held.
