July 8, 2010. 10 or 12 taps. Flights available. Food was excellent. Missing a couple of the brews I was chasing, but quality selection nontheless. Fun atmosphere.

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.

Finally made it to Bellís. First I checked out the General Store, which is a high recommendation. They have all their 6 packs and mini kegs at prices. Additionally, they have tons of Bellís gear, shirts, stickers, lamps. All quality stuff too...The Cafe was under construction so I will have to re-visit this place in the future. All that was open was the new concert hall, reminds me of a college bar I use to visit. Its too wide open, not a place to drink. But its new and really nice. So in essence, General Store great, Cafe incomplete, new concert room skip unless a really good band is there.

An original place. Not very large is square meters but with very high cellings. Bricks and wood this place feels authentic old pub. Food menu is very limited. I had a California Ruben and it was good but really the menu there is more snacks than full meals. If you require a full meal and craftbeer go to the Olde Peninsula brewpub less than five minutes walk away. Eclectic crowd of all ages. Some your people playing chess, some old folks talking about the good old days, and so onÖ Surprisingly appropriate western/country music with a banjo sound that felt just right with the place, Also some more standard soft rock. When I was there they had about 12 beers on tap. Of the 12 only two were not bottled. Many of the regulars were there (Hopslam, Tow Hearted, etc.) and the two brewpub-only beers, the very good Wild One and the interesting Poolside Raspberry Wheat.

Holy shit! This was easily in the top three best breweries/tasting rooms that Iíve ever visited. Twenty beers including Black Note and tons of other stouts and stuff not seen in bottles. I had a Chicken Curry Wrap which was spectacular. I could have spent all weekend here. A+ atmosphere, A+ selection, A+ beers. I wish I lived next door!

The best place to get draft only bells beers as well as brewery only bottles. Service is good even when busy. People bus their own seats so it can get messy. Really good sandwiches and everything is priced fairly.

Stopped here for lunch and beers on a Monday afternoon. It was a highly anticipated stop given the Bells name but I ended up disappointed. It is situated somewhat separate from the downtown area by the railroad tracks. It was pretty empty when we were there and we easily got seats at the small bar. There were at least 10 beers on tap but most of them were the regular Bells bottled offerings (ie Amber Ale, Porter, Oberon, etc). There were 4 "specialty" tap beers and I tried them all - 1 was pretty good (Wedding Ale) but the other 3 were terrible (Kalamazoo IPA, Smoked Lager, Wheat Love). The food here is not very good and overpriced. A hummus plate was $6.50 and a very basic sandwich with chips was $7. So Iíd recommend eating beforehand or after. Overall, I didnít get a good vibe from this place. There are no TVs and it didnít seem like a place you would want to sit and chill at for a long time. If you are in Kalamazoo, Iíd recommend hitting up Olde Peninsula first.

man, i was dissapointed with this place-very bad service-i was looked down upon for being at the bar for some reason. the food was just not doing it for me. they had only 2 non-bottled beers on tap (hell hath no fury and cyser). however, they did have batch 7000 in bottles for $5. THe hops have droped out of that beer mostly and it has become very sweet. I just didnt care for this place since i had much better in the state of MI on this trip.

Old looking bar, looked all right. The place is self-serve, not cool but not the end of the world either. Service was pretty bad though, the guy at the bar couldnít car less about us and answered all our questions in a vague and nonchalant manner. Good thing the beer was excellent, maybe the best we had all trip, and the prices were low. Not the best experience all trip long, but a must must must stop for the beer though.

Very professional operation. Lots of bottles for sale along with Bellís swag in the General Store. Huge selection on tap (well over a dozen) and a friendly staff in the Cafe. Well worth a visit for anyone in the area.
