KALAMAZOO, MI — The Kalamazoo Beer Exchange, one of several craft beer destinations in West Michigan visited in January by the crew of the Esquire Network’s “Brew Dogs,” will host a viewing party for the episode’s premiere.
The Beer Exchange, 211 E. Water St. in downtown Kalamazoo, will host the party at 10 p.m. May 6.
“Brew Dogs” stars brewers James Watt and Martin Dickie, who own the U.K.’s BrewDog, as they travel the United States learning about the local beer culture and creating unique brews along the way.
“Brew Dogs” visited West Michigan in January and filmed segments at several locations, including Founders Brewing Co., HopCat, Brewery Vivant and Bell’s Brewery Inc., among others. The crew also visited Ann Arbor.
For its part, the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange will show the episode and offer its signature “stock market crash,” where prices are lower than normal, during the one-hour event. The craft beer bar, also rated as one of the top in the Midwest, will serve flights of beers from the seven breweries featured in the episode.
Here are some of the speciality offerings that will be available:
Founders Devil Dancer
Brewery Vivant’s Psychopomp
Jolly Pumpkin Cherry Hibiscus Saison
Arbor Brewing Mr. Delicious
Short’s Carob Stout
Dark Horse beer is to-be-determined
