The wife and I made it to Kalamazoo from Cincinnati at the end of a spectacular sunset. We decided to check out the beer joints before heading to our bed-and-breakfast, and Olde Peninsula was our first (and brief) stop.

This is a big place, with lots of room, booths and a long bar. It’s got an Irish-pub feel, like it’s been around for ages. Well-worn for sure. Unlike other bars in the main drag of Kalamazoo, Olde Peninsula was not busy.

We perched ourselves up at the bar and ordered from the friendly bartender. Beers come in five, ten, sixteen, twenty-two and one-liter servings (wow!), and also in flights and free two-ounce tastings.

Ten house taps: Chief Wakatu IPA (weak), Vanilla Porter, Gingerbread Porter, Stout Chocula (pretty good), OP IPA (was alright), Midnight Stout (great!) and more.

The bartender was nice and accommodating, but we weren’t terribly impressed with the beer so we moved on to the next stop quickly. Competition is fierce in Kalamazoo!

OP (as the locals call it) was only the 2nd microbrewery to open in Kalamazoo more than a decade ago. They have been a staple of downtown ever since and there is good reason for it. Their beer and food are both good quality and they give you a good value for your money. The restaurant is split into two sections with one side being more of a bar and the other side more of a restaurant. The beers are all usually good, with some being excellent. Unfortunately when you are in a town with Bell’s less than a block away, there is a lot to live up to when it comes to your beer. The beer here is not Bell’s quality, but it is usually solid. The food is very good and features seasonal menus that change every other month or so. Everything is very reasonably priced and a good value. For strictly beer quality there are better options in town, but for dinner (with good quality beer) OP is a great place to stop in.
