KDaLe: Brewery Visits and Homebrew Competition


KDaLe: Brewery Events and Homebrew Competition

It’s the return of KDaLe! Interact with local brewers and learn about the industry while tasting some delicious beverages. Enjoy the Michigan winter by brewing your own book-themed beer and tasting some past winning home brews at our Tap Takeover.

All programs are for ages 21 and up.

KDaLe Quest

Attend KDaLe programs, visit our brewery partners and win prizes! Pick up your KDaLe Quest Guide at any KDL branch and begin working towards earning a KDaLe pint glass and chances at more prizes.

Brewery Tours

Events for 2023 will be announced in December.  Brewery tours in January and February 2022 were canceled due to high COVID-19 rates.

Tap Takeover

Coming soon: Join us at Horrocks Market as we celebrate the 7th year of KDaLe with a special KDaLe tap takeover. Winning beers from past champions of the KDaLe Homebrew Contest will be on tap. Sample all of these great new local brews, and meet a few of the brewers who created them.


Visit our brewery partners and earn a stamp at each one.
