The best place in Michigan, a must for any beer lover. There selection is great, and if it is not on tap you can usually get a bottle (expedition). The beer garden is a great place just to hang out and drink some fine brews. The food is great, grill right outside. Whenever Iím in the area I always stop.

What a disapointment. I love Bells beers but this place was a waste of time. The atmosphere was a very pretentious and had a forced artsy feel. There are very few tables or chairs. My entire party had to stand and the place was nearly empty. The bartender seemed too busy socializing to be able to do his job. The beer was great as expected but it as mostly stuff that is easily obtained anywhere in michigan. The only ones I had never had were the cyser (j ok at best), maole porter which was just plain bad, and an ESB which they were out of. Buy a six pack and stay home.

Stopped here many times on my way to or from fishing in Michigan. Easy to find with parking in the back. Bar in the midde against wall with food ordering directly next to bar. Beer garden in the back with picnic tables. Great beer selection with many beers being tested. Package store in the parking lot for to-go six packs. Good bar food. Good regular stopping location for Michigan.

This was the western most point of a 1800 mile beer tour three friends and myself went on, very large and cavernous bar area. The sevice was great and they actually knew about the beers they were serving! Very refreshing indeed. Between each one of us, we tried just about every single offering they had, 8-12 or so. All of them were technically well made and very tasty and many rather in-expensive. The batch 7000 however was over the top in my opinion, tasting like roasted charcoal strained jet-fuel but thatís just my personal thoughtís on that one. The food I had was great and a decent value. I would recommend checking this place out without hesitation.

This is a great place for everyone. The beer of course is awesome, and they have a large selection of it on tap and for sale in 12oz bottles. The rooms are decorated with interesting art (mosltly around the oberon sun theme.) They have a cool beer garden, and a shop of Bells items and home brew stuff. The outside is unremarkable -- be sure to visit it youíre in KZOO

Awesome...the home of Bellís! Itís a neat tall space inside that is really comfortable. Itís kind of funky and attracts crunchy college students, professors and passerbys. Good comfort food and great beer. Do it if youíre in the area...doesnít look like much from the outside. Be sure to hit the Bellís shop out back for shirts, beer, and glasses.

Good inexpensive food, Great inexpensive Bellís beer a winning combo for sure. Nice selection of their beers in bottle and on tap. Unassuming from the outside has a nice cozy wooden decor inside and you can tell the locals love this place by the full bar. Service was friendly and fast, and the brewery shop across the parking lot had a decent selection of beer and other Bellís stuff. They also had brewing supplies which I am not qualified to judge the quality and selection of.

man, i was dissapointed with this place-very bad service-i was looked down upon for being at the bar for some reason. the food was just not doing it for me. they had only 2 non-bottled beers on tap (hell hath no fury and cyser). however, they did have batch 7000 in bottles for $5. THe hops have droped out of that beer mostly and it has become very sweet. I just didnt care for this place since i had much better in the state of MI on this trip.
