 enjoy relaxing at rupert brew house

It’s winter in Michigan, which means the only real thing to do is drink beer and eat food. In keeping with such expectations, I hit the road down south (45 minutes south) to Kalamazoo to check out some local breweries on a recent Tuesday.

Rupert’s Brew House was the first to open of the current wave of nanobreweries sweeping Kalamazoo which also includes Tibb’s, Boatyard Brewing Company, and Gonzo’s Biggdogg. Rupert’s is also currently the smallest brewery in operation of the bunch, still brewing off the 1.5 barrel system they opened with last October. The brewery is located in the historic Oakland pharmacy building at 773 W. Michigan Ave and while Michigan already features dog-themed beers, breweries, and even beer blogs, Rupert’s Brew House is the only brewery I’ve visited that features it’s own resident dog, Captain Stooby, a Great Dane approaching 200 pounds that happened to tolerate my visit while taking his afternoon nap.

tibb review article

If you’ve not paid a visit to Kalamazoo in a couple years, a lot has been going on with their local brewery scene. While staples like Bell’s and Olde Peninsula brewpub continue to thrive, the biggest news is of course Arcadia Brewing Company’s recent move from Battle Creek to Kalamazoo with a new productions facility, pub, and restaurant. But while this maybe the most visible and apparent recent addition to Kalamazoo brewing community, behind the scenes another craft brewing revolution is current in progress at the nanobrewery scale with the introduction of several new smaller breweries with brewing systems of 3 barrels and less. To put this in perspective, Bell’s recent expansions have put them in the capacity to brew 500,000 barrels or more a year.
