Stopped here after a tour of the brewery (the big one, not the cafe) for some pints and tasters. Very cool place. Plenty of room, cafeteria style ordering so you donít need to wait for servers, The cup of soup I had was pretty good but I didnít try much more than that. I was mostly just interested in trying a few things like the newly release Oarsman, Wild One (not so newly released), and Q Falls Lager. Service was great. The little homebrew shop / gift shop next door was pretty cool too. Nice place all around. Iíve only been once but this could be a fun place to hang out if I was in Kalamazoo.

Stop #2 on our Beer Trip 2013. Visited 06/20/2012
Bellís has a great location. The downtown vibe is really cool. The inside and the beer garden are all really chill and well maintained. The stained glass windows are a nice touch. The lines are pretty long, but the beer is worth it. Friends and I try 3-4 each. And they are all home runs. Didnít try the food, but it looks tasty. We try as many exclusives and rare runs as we can. The store looks like it has everything a home brewer could ever want. Will hopefully be back next year for our Beer Trip 2014. Dark Horse Brewing Co. in Marshall is the next stop.

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.
