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.

K-Zoo must stop destination. A little difficult to find, but not bad if you know your way around. Nice old brewery converted into cafe. Great selection of beers. Good session beer when I went. "Hell Hath No Fury." Descent live music on the weekends. I go everytime Iím in Kalamazoo. A must stop even if just for an afternoon beer.

Had no problem finding the place coming in from out of town but it was light out. We had good and friendly service, although there is no table service, you get everything yourself. I informed the bartender that we had never been there and he was very helpful. Our food was excellent. I had the Angus burger while my wife had the Portebello mushroom sandwich. All of the usual suspects were there on tap. I only wish I could have had something that was not bottled. My wife liked the chalkboard in the bathroom for those of you compelled to doodle. The artwork in the place added to the feel as well as the stained glass windows. My three year old daughter liked the dead insects on display. Big open beer garden outside. Cool place that I will go to everytime I am in the area.

After having a challenging time finding the plae, i was astounded to find out the building i was in was actually the brewery. Unexpected but a delight none the less. All my favorites were consumed (ofcourse). Very relaxed atmosphere with a mix of college students and local beer geeks. The gift/beer shop is worth a visit as well. A must stop if in the area.

Canít complain about the selection, as they had every beer I was looking for, along with one draught only beer. Itís one of the best breweries in the world. The gift shop was really neat as well. I was able to pick up some nice clothing as well. I wouldnít miss this place.

While the food and service can be a bit of a drag, this still ranks as one of my favorite places to go and have a beer. They have a lot of events in the beer garden all summer long, and the beers on tap are some of the best in the country, so you can forgive a little of the rough warehouse atmosphere and the difficulties you might have in finding the darn front door (or even the parking lot if youíre not from the area).

Large open and airy bar. Nothing on tap impressed me. They had a cider and mead mixture and a one off St Patrickís Day brew. It is hard to find and not well marked. The prices are reasonable. I am not sure why anyone would bother to come out of their way to visit, but I suppose you should go if you are a huge Bellís fan.

Major dissapointment. Why is that this place has to be so eccentric so as to have an unmarked entrance, bartenders that could care less that newbies have arrived, menus with instructions on how to order, half of the words in the instructions are missing letters, etc...? Beer selection was approximately the same as you can get at any decent liquor store in Southern Michigan. We left without ever actually being able to order anything. Far and away the single worst brewpub I have ever been to.
