Great place, my first micro brewery. Usually a great selection and some excellent pub only selections. Could use some waitresses though

Didnít like it here. They do have almost every beer the make on tap plus a few rare ones but the atmosphere seemed off. They also donít fill growlers. The bar tender was a cool guy and recommended some beer stores for us to check out that yielded some great finds. Iíll go beer shopping in Kalamazoo again but Iíll skip Bells.

Nice taproom at the breweryís downtown Kalamazoo location. The ambiance is a little manufactured, but still very fitting for a brewery. I especially liked the multiple rooms almost like a German biergarten. This feature provides a lot of space making even crowded days feel initmate. The beer offerings live up to the breweryís hype with Bellís normal selections as well as plenty of seasonals on tap. Prices are decent too with a nice option of either 12oz or 16oz glasses for most beers. This is definitely a nice stop on any brewery tour.

Love this place. If you are a Bellís fan, you canít do any better. The service is all from the bar - drinks and food. No big deal - go up and order your flights of beer, smoked brisket sandwich, and head back to one of the cozy tables. Love that they are trying out new beer here that you canít find in the stores. Just a great place and atmosphere.

Lots of selection. bad rating from me because of no servers, ordering food or drinks sucks. 1-2 people worker the counter most of the time. Time consuming to wait in line for ordering. Other than that, its clean, nice layout and relaxing atmosphere.

Great place and very much worth the visit. They do flights and always have great things on tap. Food is really good, and their new place is just great. Picked up a few rare bottles in their shop also. Well worth the visit.

First time visit on trip to Dark Horse - been drinking the beer for ages, and probably been through Kalamazoo 50 times, but never stopped in. Ambiance is good - lots of tables, a bit dark in the evening (should have checked out the exterior a bit more) - went up into the loft area to enjoy brews and some food. Service was okay - maybe Iím lazy, but some semblance of table service would have been a nice touch...the íorder and pick up your owní idea seems okay for a starter brewery, and maybe Iím holding Bellís to an unfair standard, but this took things down a notch in my book. Selection of beers was great, and had plenty of things to sample which I had never had before...most of which were quite enjoyable (esp the Exp-Hop 2013-2). Food was pretty tasty as well. Value was fine for the food, but I thought the beer prices for a sampler were a bit steep. Good experience overall, but a bit overrated IMO (not the beer, but the rest)

Planned in an extra stop on our Lake Michigan round tour to spend a Saturday night here at the beginning of the new academic year. Arriving at 10pm, the live band in the half-filled back room was still playing (always an eerie sight, plastic cups inside a brewery as soon as dionysian music is involved), the kitchen alas closed. Great front bar area with great continually evolving tap selection (even in the course of the night, alas no Two Hearted), and an open and freewheeling self-service feel to it, always a relief when confronted with the increasing brewpub student server culture for a few too many days on end. Friendly doormen and bartenders, airy atmospheric spaces, the industrial side of the complex is put to good use. Individually priced beers on sample flights, pints above average but largely worth it.
