Arcadia Brewing expands to Kalamazoo's downtown riverfront

Arcadia Brewing Company has announced the construction of a new facility on Kalamazoo's downtown riverfront – a $5.4 million investment in developing a mixed-use facility that is to include a Packaging microbrewery, Company office space, riverfront pub/eatery, and a riverfront beer garden 

"Arcadia's expansion into Kalamazoo is an important and exciting milestone, not only for our company, but for the greater Kalamazoo and Battle Creek communities,” says Arcadia President and Founder, Tim Suprise. “ Arcadia is reinvesting in our Battle Creek operation and locating a new production and pub facility in downtown Kalamazoo will that will bring dozens of quality jobs and vitality to a strategically-important section of the city (River's Edge), while reclaiming a part of the Kalamazoo River."

In other words, Arcadia isn't relocating; Arcadia is expanding.
