Good beer spot in Kalamazoo that have a fun stock market-priced theme to their drafts. Food and service are good, although itís a bit pricey for some of the beers, and they rarely (if ever) get down to Shakespeareís prices.

I try not to use this phrase but OH MY GOD how fun is this place?!?! What other place in the world will you find a microbrew cheaper than a Bud? One of my co-workers recommended this place to me, and for my first night out in Kalamazoo, I went here with a couple of guys from work, including the guy who refuses to drink any microbrews but by the end of the night he was drinking a Brooklyn beer because Bud had gotten too expensive in his mind.....I secretly think he felt left out so he tried something new.

Love the the concept. Inside a cool old building and takes up two floors with multiple bars. A nice selection of beer and great deals can be found due to the "market crash". The bartenders were quite attentive even though it was packed both nights I visited.

Pretty hip, downstairs bar. Super crowded on the weekends. The stock market theme is pretty fun and a neat conversation topic as the prices fluctuate. Can get some pretty sweet deals when the market crashes. Had a pretty solid lineup of beers and Iíve always found something nice to drink. Fun hangout with a solid novelty.

Friends had told me about this place and I was deeply intrigued with the "exchange" concept. Although a pretty cool place, it wasnít quite as cool as I expected especially considering that their "exchange" isnt active all the time. I fact, Iíve been here 3 times in 2 days and the exchange was not active 2 of the times. I understand that when itís dead that theyd be giving away beer at rock bottom prices if they had the exchange going but I am here at 4:30pm on st. Pattyís day and the place is jammed. The whole draw to this place is the exchange. Need to have it going whenever possible. Also on an 80 degree day need to have your outdoor patio open. Great concept; shaky execution. And one more major detraction- not open Sundays.

This place is a drinking game in a bar! Me and my nephew go quite often and love to wait for the stock market to crash. For those of you who havenít been here yet, you must go!
