Named 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.

In a special twist, we are highlighting other beverage makers in downtown Kalamazoo, including Tempo Vino Winery and Green Door Distilling Co. or the Kalamazoo Stillhouse as part of our Makers Tour. This unique tour will offer a visit to a winery, brewery and distillery for samples, a cocktail and a pint, as well as our goody bag.

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.
