vibe: 4 | quality: 3.75 | service: 3.5 | selection: 3.5 | food: 4.25

After a quick beer at Olde Peninsula, the wife and I had dinner at the Beer Exchange. This place is huge! Kind of reminds of Schlafly in St Louis and Maumee Brewing in Toledo. An old brick warehouse building with arches, nice details and great architecture.

Two floors and two bars, with lots of sitting. Service was good, we got a booth right by the kitchen (you know I like that).

Food was surprisingly good, including a kale salad-and-tofu salad to die for and a mushroom crepe. Some healthy options among the bar food. And prices weren’t bad either- eleven dollars for a big kale salad.

The exchange thing is kind of silly. I’ve seen it before at New York Beer Company in NYC and don’t care for it, the prices going up and down depending on the stock market or whatever. But $2.75 for a pint of Mt Pleasant Crazy Train? I’ll take it, gimmick or not.

The beer selection didn’t wowed me either: Bell’s Oberon, Founders Breakfast, Arcadia, Griffin Claw, Stone By and Old Guardian, Vivant Red Cocq… not bad, but not outstanding either. Still, I would revisit when in Kalamazoo. It’s a fun place and I loved that kale salad!
