Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Kalamazoo Announces Extensive Tap Wall Line-Up
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is excited to announce the opening tap list at its new Kalamazoo, MI location that will be opening in November at 180 Portage Street in downtown Kalamazoo. The Alamo is committed to highlighting local and regional beer in every market. The list in Kalamazoo features a wide selection of beer from Michigan producers, including selections from Bell’s Brewery, Founders Brewing Company, and Short’s Brewing Company.
In creating this menu, George Yarbenet, General Manager of Alamo Kalamazoo, tried to balance classic beers with other beer selections that may be new to Kalamazoo residents. The Alamo Cinema Drafthouse Kalamazoo will feature 32 taps, in addition to a wide selection of bottled and canned beer. “I think our beverage offerings will catch a lot of our guests by surprise,” Mr. Yarbenet says, “The wide selection of beers both regional and national will keep beer enthusiasts very happy.”

In addition to the beers listed on the menu, four rotating taps will be reserved to feature seasonal and special beers from national and Michigan craft breweries curated by the Alamo Drafthouse Kalamazoo.

Guests at the Alamo Drafthouse Kalamazoo can order beer from our team of stealthy servers before and during each film, and draft beer offerings are available by the pint and the pitcher. Our tap wall includes Draft Root Beer. The Alamo also offers gluten-free beer options for patrons.
