KVCC Brews Up ‘Taps on Tuesday’ Food and Beer Pairings
The craft beer scene has grown from basements to college campuses. Enjoy a night out and sample the wares of KVCC's sustainable brewing and culinary arts students.
Havirmill Café is one of Kalamazoo's hidden gems. Students enrolled in Kalamazoo Valley College's Culinary Arts & Sustainable Food Systems programs put their training to work in the 418 restaurant and Havirmill Café, at 418 E. Walnut, in downtown Kalamazoo. The student-run eatery serves up delicious fare of all flavors and ethnicities, hand-crafting tastes from down home and around the globe. Undergrads are given a chance to practice their culinary skills in a real-world environment. While the learning and study program has continued at KVCC, Havirmill Café has yet to reopen post-COVID.
Taps on Tuesdays puts the students back in the kitchens and opens up the space one day a week from September 14 to December 7. Sustainable Brewing is a subset of the Culinary Arts and Sustainable Food Systems program and we bet you are eager to support their efforts as well. Taps on Tuesdays serves up beers produced by the Sustainable Brewing students along with appetizers from KVCC's Culinary Arts students. Michigan wines will also be served.
