Recap Oberon release party at Shakespeares in Kalamazoo

There are two things that March brings us that mark the coming of Spring. The first of course is March Madness, the games leading up to the end of college basketball season. The other is the release of Oberon. Though there is quite a bit of hoopla associated with March Madness, it is possible that the fans are not nearly as ravenous as the fans of Bell's Brewery's biggest hit beer.

Michigan is starting craft beer out with a bang with competition among Michigan cities inciting some of the highest vote getters in last week’s Beer City USA polling.

Boatyard Brewing: Countdown to Day One

In a building on E Patterson in the North side of Kalamazoo, we find a building that not too long ago had been a glass blowing studio. While parts of the building are still reserved for other artists, Boatyard Brewing has been working diligently to set up their new home. Through the process of cleaning out and then setting up the space there have been a mishap or two. They had originally hoped to go into production toward the end of 2012 but through a mishap with the filing of background check paperwork, their licensing hearing has been moved to the middle of February.

Recap of an EPIC 2013 Kalamazoo Beer Week

Kalamazoo Beer Week (Jan 12-19) started off with a bang. That is after a slight misfire. My original plans had been to take the Gallagher's party bus and do the kick off pub crawl in its entirety. The only issue was when I arrived at Gallagher's at about 5:30pm the bus was dead in the water, not the best place to be when you have so many people ready to go and explore the festivities of the start of beer week. I hung around till closer to 6 when the driver mentioned that they would need to get a wrecker out to jump start the bus. Minor setback but we soldier on. This is Kalamazoo Beer Week, anything can happen. They did finally get the bus working around 7pm but it took 4 wreckers to get it started. This is one I wish I had had the time to stick around and see.
