"Bell's Brewery, Inc. began in 1985 with a quest for better beer and a 15 gallon soup kettle. We are Michigan's oldest brewery and first microbrew pub; paving the way for all craft beer in Michigan. We currently brew more than 20 beers for distribution as well as a wide variety of small batch beers. Not a beer fan? We brew a Mead specifically for our Eccentric Cafe and we also serve wine by the glass. Please note that we have 2 locations. Our Downtown Kalamazoo campus featuring the Eccentric Cafe offers a full-service restaurant with eclectic menu, a spacious beer garden and patio, and an extensive collection of art and ephemera. In addition, the Cafe hosts a variety of entertainment options throughout the week. Our General Store shares the same downtown campus as the Cafe, where you can purchase beer to go, along with Bell's merchandise and a wide assortment of home brewing equipment and ingredients (a nod to our roots). We offer brewery tours at both of our locations (Downtown Kalamazoo and our larger production brewery in nearby Comstock).

Taste - small plates & martinis "On a hot June afternoon in 2006, at present day Taste, Joel, a Chef from Chicago, ordered a drink from a charming bartender, Heidi. This is where their love story began. As a couple they enjoy dining out, sampling a variety of appetizers rather than a full dinner each. It was this love of trying various menu items that bred the small plates concept for Taste. It has been Joel’s lifelong dream to own and operate his own restaurant. That dream also became Heidi’s when they fell in love and married in April 2012. Tanner Michael and Keaton Edward completed their family in 2015 and 2017. Their love story continues where it all began, right here at Taste. Chef Joel and Heidi Gesiakowski are enthusiastic to be sharing their dream with you." http://www.tastesouthhaven.com/about-us.html

"For nearly a century, West Michigan has been the home to some of the most productive and picturesque fruit farms in the Midwest. Lake Michigan's "lake effect" has sheltered the fruit of our region from the harshness of winter -- blanketing the fruit vines with snow and providing slightly warmer temperatures.Farmers in the area have long enjoyed the successes found in raising fruit in this micro-climate, and the area is quickly growing in notoriety as a prime area for producing many types of wine grapes. Hence, it is a perfect place for a vineyard and a winery... a perfect place for 12 Corners Vineyards.12 Corners Vineyards was started by a small group of friends who grew up in Michigan and recognized the uniqueness of a site just four miles off Michigan's famed "Gold Coast". The neighborhood of Twelve Corners, Michigan is our namesake. We have a 115-acre estate planted with both vinifera and hybrid grapes. Riesling, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chardonnay and Traminette are but a sampling of the varieties we offer as wines for your palate's pleasure.The vineyards are planted on soils of varying textures and slopes, bringing a distinct and pronounced terroir to the wines we proudly serve. Our winemaker, Glen Greiffendorf, incorporates his passion for wine with his knowledge of the fruit vines themselves and our knowledgeable tasting room staff provides you with the highest standard of customer service to bring you a truly unique experience in wine tasting." https://www.12corners.com/

"Guardian is a destination craft brewery that opened in 2018. It has 10 year-round taps and 12 seasonal and barreled-aged taps offering a wide variety of styles that are “true to style” or have a modern twist, such as our “Nessie” Imperial IPA with Blue Juniper Berries. Our draft list features 22 craft beers, 2 hard ciders, and 14 wines. We also have cocktails that feature Michigan, regional, and imported liquor options. Our kitchen’s menu focuses on fresh food sourced locally and regionally and as the seasons change, so does our menu.

Our restaurant has seats for 92 people, including 13 around the horseshoe bar. Our space is light and airy, equally comfortable for a dinner with your family or a date night. In 2019, we installed a 3,500 ft.2 patio with an awning covering 50 additional seats. We feature weekly live music and have a variety of events planned for the year, including monthly Beer School. Guardian serves as a third space for our community and a destination for out-of-town visitors and craft beer lovers." https://guardianbrewingco.com/

The Brewery overlooks 156 acres of wetlands that was donated by the Sima Family to Chikaming Open Lands, a non-profit organization that now maintains this Michigan state-designated “critical wetlands.” ​The beautiful, sweeping wetlands view to be enjoyed by patrons of Ghost Isle carries the name “Louis J Sima Great Lakes Marsh,” after Jim’s beloved Grandfather Louis J Sima. “Ghost Island” itself sits to the left and west of the brewery, and takes its name from generations of residents who played there as children and teens, and who claim there is supernatural activity on the island." ​https://www.ghostislebrewery.com/

"Greenbush Brewing Company opened in June 2011 in the tiny Southwest Michigan town of Sawyer (pop. ~1200 at the time). We’ve expanded our Sawyer taproom three times, added the Annex & beer garden across the street, upped our production from a seven-barrel brewhouse to a 15-barrel brewhouse in February 2013 and in 2016 opened up our latest endeavor the Clean Plate Club, serving our beer and diner fare etc. We are now producing beer for thirsty craft beer drinkers throughout the entire state of Michigan, Illinois and Indiana. With beers named Anger, Closure, Mammoth and Doomslayer–none of which are under 6% ABV–we can honestly say that full-bodied, flavorful beers are our bread and butter. Lucky for visitors to Sawyer who want to fill their bellies with more than beer, or the occasional non-beer-drinking book club that stops by, the Taproom, Annex and Clean Plate Club also feature insanely delicious food. BBQ fare in the Taproom, Imported charcuterie meats & cheeses in Annex, and Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner in the Clean Plate Club our new diner. Why? Because we think all people, our locals especially, should have easy access to good beer and great food. We boast a lifetime Friends with Benefits mug club membership with 3,500+ members and counting." https://www.greenbushbrewing.com/

"HopCat was envisioned, designed, stocked, and staffed with one mission in mind: To bring you great beer. What is a great beer? It's a beer made with care and pride. It might be a local beer or one from across the globe. It could be your usual pint, or a beer that you had no idea existed. Every once in a while, it's a beer you would never have ordered unless your server or bartender suggested it. Accolades: Since opening our Grand Rapids location in January 2008, we've been on an unending quest to ensure that our beer selection is the best in the world. We’re listed as one of the Top 50 bars in the US by Draft Magazine. But that’s just the start: Beer Advocate Magazine has ranked us as the #3 Beer Bar in the world, CraftBeer.com has rated us the #2 beer bar in the U.S., and in 2012 and 2013 RateBeer.com ranked HopCat - Grand Rapids as the #1 Brewpub in the United States. HopCat - Kalamazoo At HopCat Kalamazoo we've taken an old rail freight depot and turned it into a hub for great craft beer. We're a short walk from Bell's, Arcadia and other downtown breweries and beer bars in this great beer city. Our full food menu, full of scratch-made takes on pub food we call "food your mom would make if she loved craft beer" will be available every night until last call. We offer 100 beers on tap every day and a range of regional and global beers in bottles. If you're not in the mood for a beer, you can get a glass of wine or a cocktail from our full bar." https://www.hopcat.com/kalamazoo

"The Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail is a collection and collaboration of 18 distinct wineries located in the Lake Michigan Shore AVA. The proximity to Lake Michigan provides the wineries, of the Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail, with the ideal climate for growing wine grapes, but is an untapped travel and agri-tourism destination. Michigan wines are receiving increased national attention due to the recognition of their quality, and wines from from our region of Michigan are among the best the state has to offer. Within the broader AVA (American Viticultural Area) lies the smaller Fennville AVA. The beachfront towns and the breathtaking sunsets add to the wine lovers’ experience. We even collaborate with our friends to the north, when their seasons are shortened by weather. The MiWineTrail brings the best harvest, wines and experiences as you enjoy award-winning Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Gewurztraminer, and yes, ice wines. We have wines to meet all taste palates. The Lake Michigan Shore Wine AVA holds ninety percent (90%) of Michigan’s vineyards. This area is the historic cradle of Michigan’s viticulture with commercial vineyards dating back to 1867. *Since the region is part of the great Fruit Belt that produces most of America’s grapes for juice and jelly production, most of the area’s vineyards are planted to labrusca varieties like Concord and Niagara. Thus, the Lake Michigan Shore AVA wine grape acreage only amounts to a small percentage of its total, even though this acreage still represents nearly half of Michigan’s total wine grape production. Of the wine grapes now planted, viniferavarieties are a rapidly expanding portion of the portfolio. The broad AVA boundaries – which include the Fennville appellation – extend as far as 45 miles inland from the lakeshore, and are relatively uniform in climate and soils. The so called “Lake Effect” of Lake Michigan tempers the otherwise extreme northern climate. The characteristic soil and topography of the AVA results from a glacial moraine, with its slopes giving vineyards increased air-drainage to the lake, reducing the danger of frost settling on vines. This AVA has a warmer growing season, up to two or three weeks longer than northwestern Michigan. So come taste Michigan." https://www.miwinetrail.com/

"The GingerMan Raceway was established in 1995 by racing enthusiast Daniel Schnitta. Dan knew what was important to him as a driver when visiting a race track. His vision is to share that experience with visitors and their families. The GingerMan is located in the appealing lakeshore town of South Haven, Michigan. Rather than spending your trip to the track in isolation visitors are just six miles away from the beach, boutiques, events and dining that are common to any beachside community. Our facilities rest on more than 300 acres of land that includes sprawling areas of a shaded wood, plenty of paddock space and a pond fully stocked with fish. We believe that visitors to GingerMan should feel the comfort of a state park. Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of GingerMan is our dedication to the safety of the driver. The course layout was designed to minimize the chance of damaging yourself or your vehicle. GingerMan is considered the safest track in the region and among the safest of tracks in the nation. This makes us perfectly suited for both the novice driver who is learning the ropes and the advanced driver who is pushing the threshold. Whether you are looking to participate as a driver, lease our facilities, or visit as a spectator, we exist to provide a better motorsport experience." https://www.gingermanraceway.com/

National Blueberry Festival "South Haven's Signature Event Since 1963! In 1963, a group of South Havenites got together to plan a small event to celebrate the Blueberry harvest. South Haven is the epicenter of highbush blueberry production, and a large part of our economy and cultural heritage is connected with the prominence of agriculture in the region. Combined with the blueberry's charms of being beautiful, delicious and oh-so healthy, the National Blueberry Festival quickly became a very popular and successful event! The early festivals were largely focused on baking competitions, recipe exchanges and the ever-popular National Blueberry Festival parade. The National Blueberry Festival has evolved and grown over the years, but its core mission remains the same- to celebrate South Haven, our agriculture, and that almighty king of berries, the BLUEBERRY! Each year we revel in the opportunity to welcome visitors and friends to South Haven to take part in this celebration, whether it is their first time or their 57th!" https://www.blueberryfestival.com/

The Mission of the USS Silversides Submarine Museum is to honor the men and women of the military, preserve military history and provide experiences that educate the public about past and present military history and technology. Silversides received twelve battle stars for World War II service and was awarded one Presidential Unit Citation for cumulative action over four patrols. She is credited with sinking 23 ships, the third-most of any allied World War II submarine, behind only the USS Tang and USS Tautog. The tonnage of the ships sunk by Silversides amounted to 90,080 tons, second only to Tang's total. Judged by such standards, Silversides has the most prolific combat record of any still-extant American submarine." https://silversidesmuseum.org/

The tonnage of the ships sunk by Silversides amounted to 90,080 tons, second only to Tang's total. Judged by such standards, Silversides has the most prolific combat record of any still-extant American submarine." https://silversidesmuseum.org/
