Bells is a great place to drink Bells beer because that is all that they sell. The garden is a great place to bring your kids and the ambiance inside is excellent.
I recommend making the trip for Eccentric day. The one day out of the year that KBC serves Eccentric Ale. Wicked stuff but always interesting. Everyone dresses up and the buffett is just plain weird.
A trip to Kalamazoo is not complete without a stop to the Eccentric Cafe.

It goes without saying, the beer is good. A very nice selection, always a few unbottled beers on tap. Good selection of bottled beers in the cooler, if youíre looking for Expedition Stout in the middle of July. Iím not sure why anyone would have a problem with the ambiance of this place, very aesthetically pleasing. Great, eccentric decor. Donít forget to stop by the general store on the other side of the parking lot and buy a case or two to go. I havenít eaten here.

If you like Bellís Beer, you have to visit the brew pub. The ambiance is lacking, and I agree that the service is middle of the road. Employees forcing themselves to be hippies, and missing the true meaning of laid back. The selection is outstanding, in the bar and the store. Food was middle-of-the-road. Place is cash only. If you go seeking only great beer, you will not be disappointed. You may get lucky and get to try a new or limited brew.

Great tap lineup consisting of the regular bottle line, the winter seasonals, and a few specials like Cyser, Small Planet Ale, and Hell Hath No Fury. The ambiance in the pub area is very warm and inviting, with an African masks themes on the wall. Well designed place, although difficult to know where to enter from the street. Good prices, too, with samples at the 12, 16, and 20 oz size range. Store was well stocked with homebrew supplies, Bellís merchandise, and of course, Bellís beers. There was plenty of Batch 7000 around, although no Eccentric Ale or anything older.

I hate to rain on the parade of praise for this place, but I found the staff of both the Eccentric Cafe and the retail shop to be some of the rudest people Iíve encountered in the hospitality industry. Maybe itís just a local thing -- I found the same snotty attitude all over Kalamazoo, as if this ho-hum ass-thorn of a town has anything to be snotty about. The only place I got decent service without attitude was Olde Peninsula, but that alone isnít enough to bring me back to Kzoo any time soon.

First trip here in a while. Great food, okay selection of brews... I was hoping to try a couple others that werenít bottled. Funky Moby-ish techo music playing during the afternoon. A good day trip. Bring cash with you... they donít take c/cís. However, they do have an ATM, which will cost you $2.

Very enjoyable experience. Had about 10 beers on tap with the most expensive being $3.50 for a 12-oz. goblet of TCOE. Needless to say, we took advantage of that, along with Hell Hath No Fury, Raspberry Ale and Cherry Stout. Smoke free and very clean setting made it an enjoyable experience for my wife and son as well (bring your own highchair though.) The barbeque coconut chicken sandwich I had was also quite tasty. Recommended!

Not expecially easy to find... also cabs in Kalamazoo tend to be slow. The cafe is avereage size with a smal stage at one end and a loft at the other. The loft seems to be the quieter seating. The entire establishment is smoke free. You find a very wide range of people here from yuppie types, to trucker types, to stoner types and everything in between. Although obtained through a somewhat strange ordering system, the food is very good and somewhat upscale - at least not what youíd expect to be ordering from a window. The beer selection was great, with wheat projects, 6000, old ale and others on tap. A number of the brews were only $1.75 per glass! There happened to be an interesting and talented celtic band performing the night I was there. Of course, a must see in Michigan...

Coming here felt like making a pilgrimage. Very hard to find place. All wood inside, with a big walk up bar. Good selection of their stuff on tap, including batch 6000 and 3rd coast old ale, two of my favís. Prices were pretty damn cheep as well. Food is ordered at a seperate window, and was pretty tasty as well as pretty cheep. They had a really cool celtic band play at night as well. A great place.
