Trees, Reincarnated Waypost Brewing, Fennville

● Bring us your Christmas trees, we will bring you a bonfire of staggering heights. All the trees we sold before the holidays need a good send off. We are collecting them, trading trees for pints, and, weather permitting, having a tree toss and great bonfire. The Michigan Highlanders will be tossing trees, and all are welcome to participate.

● Join us January 18 for the tree toss at 3PM, live music from 4-7PM, which takes us to lighting the bonfire at 7PM.

● Trees will be collected during our regular tasting room hours, up until January 18th. Drop-offs during open hours will receive a beer coupon

Kalamazoo Beer Week

●Kalamazoo Beer Week, known fondly as KBW, is all about building a relationship with craft beer. Some of us already share this passion: an affinity for hand-crafted products, made by people who care about an enriching brew experience and carefully fashioned flavor profiles. But some are newer to their understanding of how amazing craft beer can be.

● Kalamazoo Beer Week is a weeklong series of events that support the craft beer experience through special tastings, dinners, and interactive events.

● Patrons will meet the brewers themselves, learn about what it takes to develop these kinds of intricate, highly desired products, and hopefully achieve a greater sense of this market segment that has taken hold of beer drinkers everywhere.

● Some of the planned events: S’mores & Beer Pairing at Saugatuck Brewing, and Walking tours with West MI Beer Tours
