In downtown, a walkable distance from Bells but weíre driving out quick so we parked on a downtown street. Typical restaurant brewpub experience. Big tanks, big windows, long bar, a menu more focused on common American foods. But even though I was expecting the worst I found a lot to like about their beer. The IPA and Pumpkin ale were especially good. This place caters to a different crowd than the Eccentric Cafe, but quality wise their beer is pretty solid. Food rating is a 7 because our cheese+bean dip was a bit disappointing, it looked and felt like wet dog food (tasted fine, though).

On the corner of East Michigan Street with street parking in front and lot parking in back. Clean brick and wood older building with bar in middle and tables on the right for food and beverages and brewing operations in the back. Six standards on tap. All were solid drinkable brews. Freindly bartender with good knowledge. Did not eat, but the menu of starters, salads, burgers, sandwiches, pastas and pizza entrees looked very good. Good location and I will stop again.

Only a few blocks away from the Bellís Eccentric Cafť. More of a restaurant that brew their own beer than a pub. its about 100. A few people sitting around the bar drinking beer but 99% of the customers go there to sit at the restaurant tables and have food and possibly beer. Food menu is upscsale greasy pub food. Youíre got your basic burgers and friends but also some more ďfancyĒ meals. Very reasonable prices. Brewing equipment in plain view behind large windows. When I was there they had 7 beers on tap (5 regular and 2 seasonals). I only had one beer, the regular Midnight Stout and I wasnít impressed at all. Since it is only a few blocks away from Bellís Cafe I think it is worth a visit. Also if you in the mood for a good meal and some craftbeer you should eat there before/after spending a few hours at Bellís Cafeís because Bellís Cafe food menu is more snacks that full course meals.

I went here after Bells on a Monday afternoon but I wish I had gone here first. A relaxed pub with a "sports bar" feel located in downtown Kalamazoo. It was pretty quiet at 2:00 on a Monday but there were several patrons just relaxing with a beer and enjoying a World Cup game on TV. The beers I got were pretty tasty (Count Chocula, IPA, Midnight Stout, IIPA). A nice atmosphere, friendly service, and good value. I really enjoyed this place much more than I had expected and it is really underrated here on RB. I would view it as equally worth a stop as Bells.

Iíve been drinking OPís beers since Gonzo used to brew there, and have been enjoying this place ever since. Their brewer (Dan) is a really nice guy and cranks out very good brews.The staff are friendly and the food is good too. I love me some OP!

Brewpub not far from Bells. Good food, above average beer, friendly service. Six beers on tap so I had to fill up my sampler with a cider and a cross of their stout and raspberry beer. In fact they have all these strange offerings of their beers mixed togetherÖ just give me a five pull, lol. I almost skipped this place (as Iím assuming most do with the massive amounts of ratings for Eccentric Cafť and a handful of ratings for here) but Iím glad I didnít. Right on the menu it advertises to get a free 2oz sampler of their beers for free. I know many places do this but most donít advertise. My free sampler of root beer was quite good.

Rumors of questionable beer quality were greatly exaggerated. Which is good because in a town with great beer places like Kzoo, you canít be an average brewpub. The IPA and BWB dark strong pale are both excellent beers. Donít let the tepid ratings fool you.

KInd of an old folksrestaurant vibe and decor. Diverse clientele of families, people from the nearby hotels and young partiers. Proximity to Bells makes this well worth a stop. Service seemed disorganized and unprofessional but was friendly enough. Beer list is just their brews and some BMC. Food was average with one of those oddly diverse menus that makes you wonder what a place does good.

Restaurant vibe on the inside with a bar area towards the middle. Small selection of in-house beers. Decent stuff. Nothing excellent, but solid. Food was pretty good, too, & the service was fine. Priced pretty well. Donít go out of your way strictly for this place, but itís around the corner from Bellís. So if youíre at Bellís, itís worth it to stop in for a few if youíve never been.
