If you haven't noticed yet, Kalamazoo loves its beer. One thing you'll also notice is that Kalamazoo loves its dogs. Check out these great ways to combine the two loves of your life. 

From races and rescues to parks and pet shows, Kalamazoo has a big place in its heart for dogs. On Saturday, February 20 from 1pm - 5pm Arcadia Brewing Company in downtown Kalamazoo is showing their love for all things cold by inviting you to Puppy Fest. This will be an afternoon to come drink in the beer garden with your four legged friend along side the river. Guests and their pups can enjoy a $1 off tier 1 beers if they come with their dog.


Another fun opportunity to salute your four legged friend is check out Kalamazoo Beer Exchange on Thursday, February 18 and grab a beer. When you attend on this day, The Beer Exchange is donating 25% of the day's sales to the SPCA of Southwest Michigan. They'll even have adoptable (and adorable) animals in the lobby! You'll also get the chance to try a collaborative beer that was made JUST for this event, Feral by Gonzo's Biggdogg Brewing will be available all night.

So how about it? What sort of things do you do to combine your two loves? Are you a cat and knitting person? Do you ski and recite poetry? We want to hear about it!
