Kalamazoo's First Brewpub!

Welcome to Olde Peninsula Brewpub and Restaurant, Kalamazoo's first Brewpub, opened on St. Patrick's Day in 1996. Previously known as the "Big Corner," this three story structure was built by Nicholas Bauman in 1874 as the Peninsula Restaurant.

This elegant restaurant gave way to the Franklin and Folz clothing store from 1884 to 1924. Through the years, the building housed a succession of business, including the Kalamazoo Stove Company, a book bindery, and a hotel. It became the headquarters for W.R. Biggs/Gilmore Agency in 1973. Severely damaged by the 1980 tornado, the building was completely rehabilitated in 1980-81. The current owners, Marie and Steve Blinn, wish to bring back a piece of history for all of Kalamazoo to enjoy. We are proud to offer the freshest beer available, brewed on-site in our 7-barrel Brewhouse. On behalf of all of our staff, we hope you relax and enjoy your experience at Olde Peninsula.

The waiter was rude and our food took well over hour. When it came out my burger was half raw and half over cooked . Everyone who came in after us was gone by the time our food came out. 5 times he said he would check on our food and not once did he come back with an update. We were excited when we found this place because there is not a lot in the area around western Michigan University. We will never go back!
