This is the place to go if you want dinner and micro-brew. The food is always excellent and the beer is decent. They often have gimicky beers that a lot of people enjoy: Raspberry Wheat, Pumpkin Ale, etc. The decor is nice. The brewery is visible behind big windows. Lots of college and older folks. I have had many selections of their food over the years and it has all always been very tasty. It is more upscale than what one would usually think of as pub grub. They do have televisions up over the bar if some important Michigan game is going on. The bathrooms are small but clean. All-in-all, I would recommend the place to anyone.

My wife and I stopped here for dinner and a beer on a Sunday evening, and the place was not busy. This is the third or fourth time that we've been here, and each visit has left us with the same impression, so the pub is consistent in its efforts and it's time to write a review.
The interior of the pub is close to what I'd call an English pub setting. Since they were not busy we received very good service. There were 5 regular menu beers available plus 4 seasonal or specialty beers. My wife had the Red Ale and I had a Dunkel that was one of the seasonal offerings. Both were very tasty and brewed to style. However, neither beer was to the point of outstanding, and that is pretty much the impression about the beers that we've had after each previous visit. I'll grade the beers at a B level.
We each ordered a meal to go along with the beer. The menu has a nice variety of offerings, so there is something there for everyone. The food is kind of like the beer -- good, but nothing to write home about. (The BBQ ribs are NOT smoked, which I think is just wrong.)
This pub consistently has good beer and food, so it is a worthy visit, and we'll keep going back.

was the first stop on what turned out to be a cross country beer adventure with my gf this past summer. these are my notes.
atmosphere is nice, has a bit of an old timey feel with lots of breweriana for decoration. was pretty busy on a friday night at the end of happy hour.
8 beers or so on tap with lots of domestic bottles and a pretty extensive food menu. i ordered a sunset red ale which was ok and an old smokey burger which was great.
service was fast and friendly.
overall a pretty good brewpub. worth a visit if you find yourself in kalamazoo.

Stopped by for lunch and a few beers. Good menu selection and the prices are very inexpensive. The beer is fresh and they normally have a variety of styles. $7.50 for a growler fill is a great price as well. The brewery is housed in a historic old building which adds to its charm. Seems like a nice local pub to have a decent beer and food that will not crush your wallet. If you are coming into Kalamazoo this place is worth stopping at. Even more due to being very close to Bell's. More of a quiet relaxing spot for a beer.

Had the opportunity to sit down and have lunch here a few days ago. First off, decent vibe to the place. Lots of interesting artwork on the walls, and it certainly felt like a nice older establishment in a constantly updating downtown environment. Lots of natural light and good views out to the street.
The beer (reasonably priced by the way) were out to the table in short notice, but we had to work to get the waitress' attention after that to order our food. The menu was decent, with typical pub fare and a couple of more unique entries. I opted for a 'mess' burger with onions, mushrooms and thousand island, and it turned out pretty well.
Olde Peninsula is a decent choice if you should find yourself in Kalamazoo. Good beer and a decent restaurant for sure.

I went here after Bells on a Monday afternoon but I wish I had gone here first. A relaxed pub with a "sports bar" feel located in downtown Kalamazoo. It was pretty quiet at 2:00 on a Monday but there were several patrons just relaxing with a beer and enjoying a World Cup game on TV. The beers I got were pretty tasty (Count Chocula, IPA, Midnight Stout, IIPA). A nice atmosphere, friendly service, and good value. I really enjoyed this place much more than I had expected and it is really underrated here. I would view it as equally worth a stop as Bells.
