Local microbrew selling for less than Bud Light? It sounds too good to be true after a sticky summer day, but it happens at the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange, where patrons belly up to the bar and scan the prices of the moment on a TV screen. After 6 p.m., prices fluctuate based on demand, just like the New York Stock Exchange; order the same thing as your friends, and the price jumps.
The exchange is just one attention-grabbing stop in this five-college town of 76,000 (about one hour east of the Lake Michigan shore). A lively arts scene, innovative local restaurants and a buzzing festival lineup keep downtown Kalamazoo busy all summer.
