I have done the downtown walking tour and also just did a private bus tour. The walking tour was a few years ago and was so much fun. It was a nice day out and our tour guide was great. Each place we stopped (Tibbs, Gonzo's, Arcadia) all gave great tours and the beers were all good. We recently did... More

We had a great time. Hearing the history and growth of the craft beer movement in Kalamazoo was very interesting. The beer was even better! John did a wonderful job. Will plan on doing this again. FYI, stay downtown at the Radisson. We didn't, wish we did.

We did a private tour for my 40th, and West Michigan Beer Tour provided us a great time! They were great to work with in terms of planning it, answering questions and changing things as needed. It was well organized, and it was great to just be there to enjoy the day, rather than having to organize things myself. The... More

I am not one to write reviews good or bad. In this case, I could not resist. $40 to walk through a rough part of town, drink just a couple taster size beers and see the brewing process of 2 tiny breweries could not have been a bigger disappointment. The first brewery we toured assigned a kid that clearly lacked... More

I was responsible for organizing my brothers bachelor party and we decided to rent a cabin in W. Michigan and hit up some breweries. At first we though about just figuring it out on our own and walking around to sample what Kalamazoo had to offer. After about 5 min of research it was clear that there was an overwhelming... More
