Everyone knows the concept so Iíll skip that. Fun place. On occasion you can find a great microbrew for under $4 when the market crashes. If you have time to wait. Alot of Michigan beers. Nice rotating selection and some quality cask choices. Food is excellent, if a bit pricy.

Probably one of my favorite bar experiences ever. I was just going to have one beer but the exchange kept crashing and I got to try 4 really good , and in one case a world class Bellís IPA, for less than 15 bucks. Iím surprised more people havenít run with this concept.

This is an unfair rating b/c we didnít get to experience the actual stock market-like "exchange". We were there in the afternoon. It is a huge, slick looking building with good service and a pretty good selection. Did not get to try the food but it looked great. Price was just ok. I am willing to give this place another try as long as I remember to go after 6 pm. The place was dead on a Monday afternoon.

Stopped in for KZ Beer Week while I was traveling. I heard a lot about this spot and I was super impressed, what a great concept, we got some great prices when the market crashed! Will be back.

KBE is a very cool idea. Went on a Thursday afternoon, so no "stock exchange" pricing. The selection was really excellent. Tough time deciding what to drink. Bar keep was not busy, so she was attentive and very nice, put up with our questions. Had the pizza, very good to excellent. Friends enjoyed their food as well. Pricing was good. Will be back in the future.

We were kind of confuse ! Because of the name, we thought it was a beer store. So we thought might as well have a beer. If we knew it was a bar we would have come here instead of Shakespeareís pub last night ! Well, next time.

Great place with a gimmicky but fun draw. The happy hour is worth a stop if you are in the area - watching the prices of your craft beer rise or fall on the stock board is quite fun. Great food as well. Much better than the average beer bar. This is a great place.

Love the stock market theme that raises or lowers the prices of beer based on demand. It feels like playing a game and you get to try out things you may not have considered before. They also have plenty of great vegan selections for food which is rare in the area!
