There is one more thing I can add to my list of Things to Make Winter Less Bleak . . .
Kalamazoo Beer Week!
Yes, we hold our craft beer near-and-dear here in Kalamazoo (home to some truly great craft breweries), and in mid-January, when you might argue that winter is at it's very bleakest, we celebrate with Kalamazoo Beer Week -- a full week of events and activities designed to "support the craft beer experience."
There is even a KBW shuttle to get patrons safely from one event to another!
Yep. Winter seems a bit less bleak this week!
