Arcadia Ales celebrates 18th anniversary
The brewery will be celebrating its 18th annual Highland Christmas and Anniversary Party, complete with a performance by the Kalamazoo Bagpipe Band at 5 p.m.
At around the same time as the pipe band performance, Arcadia will tap its Anniversary Ale Loch’d-Up barrel-aged Scotch Ale. Cover charge is $3 from noon to 5 p.m. and $5 after 5 p.m. Entry donations will benefit the Food Bank of South Central Michigan.
Owner Tim Surprise told MLive, “It is a day, yes a whole day, of food, music, beer exclusives, celebration and giving back to the community we have called home since 1996.” Surprise will give his annual Address to The Haggis at 6 p.m., followed by music from the Irish trio Soltre.
