You can get rewarded for frequenting the breweries of Kalamazoo County.
Discover Kalamazoo will launch its "Give a Craft" beer trail campaign on Thursday, May 28, where people can earn free gifts for visiting the county's 11 breweries and brewpubs. The "Give a Craft" passports can be picked up at the Discover Kalamazoo office, 141 E. Michigan Ave., Suite 100, or the 11 participating breweries or brewpubs starting on May 28.

As you visit each brewery, request your passport be stamped. A purchase is not required to receive a stamp.

Once all locations have stamped the passport, it can be turned into the Discover Kalamazoo office for a free gift. For those who visit the Bell's Brewery Inc. production facility in Comstock Township, an additional gift will be available.

"With the explosion of new establishments throughout Kalamazoo County over the past two years, the launch of the Give a Craft beer trail is the next step toward creating an exciting destination for craft beer enthusiasts to discover,” Discover Kalamazoo president and CEO Greg Ayers said.

The passport will also be available for all Kalamazoo-area tours from West Michigan Beer Tours.

For more information about the "Give a Craft" program, go to or call 269-488-9000.
