In downtown, a walkable distance from Bells but we’re 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).

I live in Kalamazoo and I love this place. It is a great place to eat and drink. Their brews are delicious and always satisfying. I particularly love their version of a Black and Tan. It is very delicious. It is also a great place to stop in for a brew after a night on the town.

Our favorite stop when coming back to Kalamazoo for football/basketball games. Food is very good and service is always excellent. Not as many beers as some micropubs, but the food and service make up for it. Not the selection of Bells pub, but much more wife friendly. Generally at least six house brews on tap. When this place first opened I would have rated the beer as just ok, but it has definitely improved over the years. Their Midnight Stout and OP IPA are very good and their seasonal Pumpkin ale is extremely popular locally

This place was the highlight of my kalamazoo trip. Only a few beers on tap but the few I had were all quite good. Batch 200 was one of the better barleywines I have had.
The food was far better than standard brewpub fare.
