Another fun beer tour is coming up in Kalamazoo that is all about celebrating local women who have inspired and taken leadership roles within the Michigan beer scene. The walk is scheduled for Saturday, June 12th from 11 a.m. until 6:45 p.m. in downtown Kalamazoo. The tour has two registrations — one in Downtown Kalamazoo and another at the new location for Tantrick Brewing Co. in Allegan. Drink costs are only included at the three stops, but beer can be purchased at the registration stops.
The three women being celebrated on the tour are Waypost Brewing Co.'s co-owner and head brewer Hannah Lee, who produces "wonderfully crisp, clean beer across a variety of styles," Saugatuck to see Kim Collins, owner and brewer at Guardian Brewing Co., which opened in early 2019, and Three Blondes Brewing Co. ran by sisters Amanda Johnson, Carrie Troyer and Megan Zernicke, whose South Haven brewery opened in the summer of 2018.
The tour includes a pint or samples at each location, as well as production tours and meet-and-greets with the women behind these emerging breweries. Water and snacks are also provided for the tour as well.
