Kalamazoo has been ranked fourth in the nation by the website Livability.com in its "Top 10 Beer Cities" list.  Microbreweries like Bell's and Olde Peninsula Brewpub were counted among the reasons Kalamazoo ranks so highly on the beer list. The timing couldn't be better, as the city is celebrating "Kalamazoo Beer Week" through Saturday.

In about 25 locations around the city, more than 60 events will celebrate all that is craft beer in the state of Michigan.

Well-known Kalamazoo watering holes are holding beer-themed tastings and events.
