About Chris Springsteen

Chris Springsteen has called Kalamazoo home most of his adult life and his passions dovetail perfectly with the city’s vibrant culture of arts, live music, and craft beer. His personal balancing act includes feverishly working at fostering in his daughters a love of all things comic book, Star Wars, and Red Wings, keeping up his drumming chops, playing pub trivia, failing to make epic homebrew, prying out the novel he’s certain is stuck in his head, helping his wife to find IPAs she enjoys, and trying to keep up with many new breweries that keep sprouting up in Southwest Michigan.
