Came in on a Wednesday night, and stood on line for 15 minutes to order a beer from the bar. Itís got a nice atmosphere, and the food is good, but itís off a very limited menu and the service really kinda sucked. Past that itís tough to go wrong in a place that serves nothing but Bellís beer, I was hoping to find Hopslam or some Expedition on tap, but I had to settle for a couple beers I hadnít had before and plenty of Two Hearted. So for consolation beers, it wasnít too bad. Overall I was a little disapointed, I love Bellís and wanted to love the Cafe, but it just seems like they could do so much better.

Fist time I went here was in the winter, it was ok then. Just went back this summer, and hung out in the beer garden. Very nice. they also usually have around 10 beers on tap as well as bottles. Food is pretty good as well.

This is a great place to come and try some excellent beers. The bar has lots of cool decorations and very high ceilings. Some staind glass windows overlook the seating area. There is also a huge beer garden out back with lots of shade and picnic tables. The music being played was a good mix of reggae and rock. The service is kind of self serve. They have a window you walk up to order food. You get your own beer right from the bar. No wait staff. The beer selection was excellent. Pretty much anything Bells brews was available on tap along with plenty of bottled beers. Also some stuff that is only available at the Cafe.

What a great, eclectic group of K-Zoo locals that hang out here... we made more than a few new friends. The palce could have been hard to find but our cabbie knew exactly where to go. Metra and Greyhound are only a few blocks away as well.

We decided to sit out in the beer garden as we shared a cab with the family of one of the band members who was set to play there that evening. It was rather a rag-tag garden which turned out to be a nice venue, although the tap selection at the outdoor kiosk was rather limited. They have a really cool deco/lodge-style pagoda over the stage and the acoustics are pretty good when thereís not a train roaring past. The interior of the bar crowds the eyes with wood and brick and maps and masks, myriad tchotchkes and a nice fish tank, etc., etc...

And of course, thereís the beer. Let me tell you, I certainly got my fill of Third Coast off draught. Boy, did I. Cash only for bar and food, but thereís an ATM inside. Worth the stop. I meant to check out Kraftbrau right across the street, but I was having too good a time.

A little hard to find if youíve never been there; from Kalamazoo Ave, it looks like itís closed, but the entrance is behind, off of Porter St. Has a nice beer garden that would be nicer if the grass was watered more and cut. They happened to be watering the grass when we were there, so I moved a picnic table away from the water and the groundskeeper got after me a little bit for ripping the grass. The pub is nice, brick lined. They had a large selection of tap beer, but only one brew that I hadnít seen before in bottles. They also had a number of bottle beers available, including the Expedition. Thereís a merchandise store across the parking lot, including homebrewing ingredients and six packs for sale. Prices for the latter were quite reasonable. You could get mini-kegs of Oberon for $18.95. All in all, the operation seemed a little sloppy. Iíd like to see more special drafts and more money put into the beer garden. It really seems like itís an afterthought, and with a little TLC, they could make it a place to be in Kízoo. Still a must stop.

hopscotch  (263) Vero Beach, Florida | May 29, 2007| Updated September 9, 2010
I havenít visited for a few years, but I remember the place well. Bare bones, warehouse type setup. Gift and brewing suppply shop across the parking lot from the main entrance to the pub. Always a great selection of beers as Bells has very few weak links in their line. I didnít eat anything, but the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Maybe things have been spruced up a bit since my visit, but I donít recall the decor being anything other than generic. Gotta hit Bells when in Kalamazoo, though.

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.
