KALAMAZOO, MI — Throughout the pandemic, our craft beverage culture has continued to roll with punch after punch.

Closures. Carryout. Partial reopens. Outdoor dining only. Partial reopening (again).

They’ve done their best to provide thoughtful service while at times potentially putting their health at risk — all with an uncertain financial future lurking in the background.

To highlight their hard work, resiliency and attention to the community’s safety, we’re introducing the photo series, “Kalamazoo Unmasked.” The series will highlight a leadership member at several of our breweries, wineries and distilleries.

Each person and business will be identified along with a photo of them with a mask on and without a mask, as many of us haven’t had the desired amount of face-to-face interactions as we’d probably like.

Kalamazoo Unmasked will be featured during Kalamazoo Craft Beverage Week, which will run Jan. 29 through Feb. 6, 2021. 

Be sure to help support those in our local craft beverage community, by checking out the unique events and specials during #KBW2021.
