Kalamazoo Craft Beverage Week is back so beer, wine, and spirits lovers can mark their calendars for January 29th through February 6th. The county wide event has occurred annually for over ten years under the name Kalamazoo Beer Week and was recently renamed Kalamazoo Craft Beverage Week in 2020. The modification allowed for the participation of more Kalamazoo makers, adding local distilleries and wineries to join in with the breweries and celebrate the craft beverage industry as a whole.

“This weeklong event is a great way to highlight our local craft beverage makers and partners around Kalamazoo county and encourage both our residents and visitors to enjoy Kalamazoo’s craft beverage scene,” said Dana Wagner, Director of Marketing and Communications with Discover Kalamazoo, the organization that manages Kalamazoo Craft Beverage Week. 

“We held a modified version of the event last year with hybrid offerings like take home pairing kits with a virtual component, but this year we’re looking forward to having more in person and interactive events back, which is at the heart of Kalamazoo Craft Beverage Week,” said Wagner. Some of the past events have included beer and dessert pairings, specialty tap takeovers, spelling bees, make and take classes, and sessions to meet the brewers/makers. Specific events and craft beverage specials for the 2022 event week will be posted in early January. 

Lodging packages are available on the site now so visitors can start planning and book their stay in Kalamazoo for the event week. To stay up to date with the event, visit KalamazooCraftBeverageWeek.com and follow #KBW2022.
