Detroit is about to get its own stock market-inspired beer bar!

The founders of the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange have leased space inside the Stevens Building at 1258 Washington Blvd., Crain’s reports.

The original Kalamazoo Beer Exchange is very similar to the stock market with a supply-and-demand idea. TVs throughout the building list the prices of the draft beer list. If customers begin to purchase one beer more than the others, the price on that beer rises and then falls when demand for the beer decreases. Occasionally the market “crashes” and the prices will fall for a limited time.

The owners declined to provide specifics on the timeline for opening day or the design. MLCC liquor licensing records suggest that the location will feature two bars. It also holds a license for to-go beer sales.

This will be something to watch!
