Stopped in here last weekend while I was in town for the Michigan Mile. Figured it was a ten hour trip, might as well drive another twenty minutes and check out one of my longtime most wanted to visit places.
Atmosphere is a little chaotic but in a sorta good way. People are all over the place drinking, eating and just hanging out. We must have hit the jackpot as we got a parking spot right out front, got served at the bar with no wait, and got a nice table just a few feet away all in the span of five minutes. Lots of cool stuff hanging on the walls from all over the world, its just a really cool place to have a beer. Service was good. It was a little hard to get their attention but once I got it I had no problems. Quality was pretty high all things considered. The beers are top notch and the food was solid.
Selection was pretty large. I tried about 7-8 of them and they were all at least solid. The Larryís Latest DIPA I tried was incredible. We got an order of chips and some buffalo dip, both were excellent. My only knock on the food is that the menu seemed a little small but it was more than enough for a snack or two. Everything was priced pretty well. Beers were a touch high but I was expecting them to be that way since most of them werenít your everyday Bellís beers.
Overall I am glad I made the side trip over here. It is exactly what I expected and more. I look forward to returning in the future and spending a bit more time, hopefully out on the deck.

Great place to drink. Great selection of commercially available Bellsí and rarities, like sour ales, Belgians, etc they are trying out. Last time I was there they had a total of 33 beers on tap. Itís self serve for food and drinks. Food is very good, Bells store is a plus where you can get beer or clothing. For my money this is easily the best beer drinking establishment in the state. World class microbrewer, different beers on tap each time you go, nice facility, good food, good variety of visitors many from out of the area.

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

Cool ambiance from the start. Just a fun place to hang out in general. A bit overpriced for direct from the brewery but you can get some interesting stuff. The pulled pork was the BEST I EVER HAD. Try it out if you get the chance.

Love going to Eccentric Cafe for lunch/early dinner. Nice and bright atmosphere with many Bellís exclusives. Very casual - great place to go to drink beer (and eat quite good food) for a relaxing afternoon.

In terms of decor, probably the sweetest brewpub Iíve been in. Always have something on tap you canít really get elsewhere. Food is pretty damn good, and served very casually. Attached music venue is located in a way as not to disrupt the pub, but easily accessible and oft contains some crispy tunes. Overall, my best location review yet; this would be hard to top... and more importantly, I greatly look forward to my future visits.

Bellís Eccentric Cafe is a solid brewpub. Ambiance is interesting b/c Iíve been there and the place is full of hipsters on one night, and the next night itís full of yuppies or baby boomers.
Iíve had Black Note Stout on tap at least 5 times over the past 2 months. Food selection is decent, but not spectacular.
All-in-all, itís a fantastic place to come with friends to enjoy great MI brewed beer.

Ambiance is excellent, very eclectic and off the wall. Lots of vintage bells stuff hanging around, big open seating area and tables upstairs with checkers on the table. Service is fast and friendly, although its serve yourself at the bar. Selection is pretty great, about 15 different Bells beers on. Some staples, some one off, and some rarities too. Beers are insanely cheap for the quality of Bells products, pretty much everything $5 or less, even for ther big boys. Overall a must stop if even remotely close to Kalamazoo.

Bells eccentric cafe is a wonderful place to grab a few beers, but the selection will cause you to take your time to decide what to have. They feature plenty of year round beers and have several tapped that you can only get at bells. The food is good, but I was not blown away. This is also a sweet place to catch a concert. The only downside is that there are no beer specials ever. The price is locked
