Brew News: January

Happy New Year friends! 2014 was good to us & we’re looking forward to more beer & fun in 2015, but aren’t we all? Speaking of beer & fun we’re kicking off this month with Kalamazoo Beer Week. Read on to be privy to our whereabouts in Kalamazoo as well as the rest of the month!

Thursday, January 15: KBW: Speed Dating @ Shakespeare’s Pub in Kalamazoo, MI

Yes, this is serious– speed dating it is featuring 4 Greenbush beers! Call (269) 488-7782 or visit Shakespeare’s to reserve your spot or just show up! $15 gets you in on the speed dating & a half pint of each of the following:

Apathy – 6.7% Oatmeal Stout
Anger – 7.6% Black IPA
Pain – 11.2% Imperial Cream Stout
Closure – 6% Pale Ale

Here’s how the speed dating cookie will crumble: 3 minutes per date with 5 different people then break for a GB beer. Repeat this cycle by 4 & that’s that. Who knows… you might leave with a potential craft beer loving companion just in time for that one Hallmark holiday in February 😉

Friday, January 16: KBW: Happy Hour @ Wayside West in Kalamazoo, MI
