When I saw that noted pinball collector Mike Schudel was having a New Year’s Eve party, I made plans to attend and also play the many pins he operates at One Well Brewing in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

One Well Brewing in Kalamazoo, Michigan

I went to the brewery the night before Mike’s party. The place was mobbed. Luckily, it was only a short wait for a beer and there was always a pin or two open.

Lots of interest in playing pins here

It was nice to see so many people of all ages playing the pinball machines there. The long wall of pins had an excellent variety of titles.

Some great ’90s pins mixed in

The Beatles in Kalamazoo

They have eleven pins to play. The line-up of titles seem to change frequently. Three of them have been swapped out already since I was there last month.

A nice selection of recent pin titles

All the pins were extremely clean and worked perfectly.

Some classic video games to play too

The brewery also serves food, with pizza being their specialty. The beer and food tasted great. I drank their popular Cosmic Rip IPA. The staff was very friendly.

A large variety of craft beers to choose from

Many souvenirs for sale to help remember the visit

Cold souvenirs to take home also

I wish I lived in Kalamazoo – I would be there every weekend.
