Awhile back ReneG posted a message inquiring about Eccentric Day at Bell's Brewery in Kalamazoo MI, and I replied. Here's a little more information and a few corrections from my initial reply: As I said before, my son says this is the best party of the year in Kalamazoo. It starts as soon as people arrive around 11 AM and goes on thru the evening. I think they close at 12:30AM. Admission is free, but to get in you MUST WEAR A COSTUME (the crazier the better). They put out food, and it's all free - although they eventually run out. They made the Eccentric Brew the day after the last years party, and it aged all year. It's the same recipe every year, but batches vary (like wine, I guess). And other parts of the brewery are open for touring and obtaining other brews. The only music that day/night is whatever groups may show up. Open mike type it seems. They always have several drafts available and many bottled choices.
