West Michigan Beer Tours is dedicated to providing beer lovers with fun, flavorful and relaxing tours. We encourage every passenger to drink responsibly and have a designated driver. After each tour we will also provide access to a local taxi service. While we encourage everyone to purchase beer at the breweries to take with you, we do not allow any consumption on the buses. If any of our tour directors have reason to believe that a person is intoxicated prior to a tour, we reserve the right to turn them away. If a person is turned away due to intoxication no refund will be provided.
Unless a tour is cancelled all tours are non-refundable.
Please note: The tours below appear in reverse chronological order.
Just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean we can’t brave the chilly temperatures on foot to sample a trio of downtown Kalamazoo’s breweries.
In partnership with The Kalamazoo House, the historic bed and breakfast built in 1878 and now owned by Steve and Stephanie Gibson, guests can enjoy an overnight stay, the walking tour of three breweries and breakfast — all in one click.
For this special tour for guests of The Kalamazoo House, we’ll visit Bell’s Eccentric Cafe, Rupert’s Brew House and Tibbs Brewing Co., where you’ll receive either a full pour or a series of samples at each stop. You’ll also learn more about Kalamazoo’s growing craft beer industry and its role in Michigan’s rise as one of the top beer destinations in the world.
