"Arcadia Brewing Company -- The Cereal City's Gem"

By Patrick Beeman, Coldwater, MI

The Cereal City has a true gem in the Arcadia Brewing Company. This brewpub is located right downtown, just a block or two from Kellogg Arena. My friends and I have stopped in on many occasions, and have never been dissappointed by the beer, food, or people. The Arcadia is a first class restaurant serving specialty pizzas from a wood fired oven. That combined with the open beer fermentation tanks makes for one greatly aromatic establishment.

The decor of hardwoods and brass fits right in. The beers are brewed in the English tradition. They have three standards, and three seasonal beers. Try the sampler platter and get one 10 ounce glass of each! The beers may be ordered by the bottle, draught, or cask conditioned (recommended). Ask one of the many beautiful waitresses for a tour of the brewery.

I can't think of a better way to spend a weekend afternoon than with a group of friends, eating, drinking, and making merry, in a quality place like the Arcadia!

Bottoms Up!
