Kalamazoo is getting another brewery...

Downtown brewery gets green light from city of Kalamazoo
By Malachi Barrett, via MLive

KALAMAZOO, MI -- The path is clearing for a new brewery on the east side of Kalamazoo's downtown. A special use permit allowing Ronin Artisan Ales to set up a microbrewery and food service business in 505 E. Kalamazoo Ave. was approved by the Planning Commission Thursday. Justin Guisinger of Three Rivers, and Shane Van Liere, of Portage, just need approval from the Alcohol & Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau and the Michigan Liquor Control Commission to open their business in a developing area of the city.

The friends, both 32, plan to open the microbrewery by October in a vacant section of a building also occupied by Black Owl Cafe, The Final Clue and Symphony Financial Services. The location is within walking distance of Bell's Brewery Inc., Arcadia Brewing Co., HopCat, Old Dog Tavern, Shakespeare's Pub and the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange.

Van Liere and Guisinger said they hope to integrate Ronin Artisan Ales into Kalamazoo's downtown beer culture.
