KBE was running a fine line between beer geek haven to frat boy saloon.
It's a great location, a block from Bell's, has plenty of parking, fantastic building, multiple levels, wow. On the basement level, they have a couple pool tables and a dart board.
The upper level is where the kitchen is, with seating for about 25 people, and another 12 at the bar.
The idea behind the bar is that the prices are based upon what people order...you order more, the price goes up, and every so often (15 minutes or so), the market will refresh with new prices. Kind of a cool idea. At one point during the night, the market crashed and everything goes down to the cheapest price or cost, I'm not really sure. They go way down.
What it breaks down to is they had a really good tap selection, and some of them were a great price. If you're a beer geek, check it out. I'd say find a seat on the upper level.
The bartender didn't seem to overly knowledgeable about beer...
Solid Kalamazoo stop. (982 characters)
