Completely populated by Bell’s unbottled beers plus Oberon... at least while I was there. Prices are awesome! $3.25 for most beers, and the most expensive is the Rye Barleywine at $4.25 a pour. Oh, darn. The ambiance is more like a cafeteria, and very exclusive. One bartender when the place was kind of full, but it was ok. Took a while to get food or beer. Pretty cool.

Charming place with great food and a strong selection of Bells beer. The general store is next door and who could complain when you can pick up a case of Black Note...

As first-time visitors, the streets and lots around the complex were confusing, but we eventually found our way in. The beer is good to excellent, of course, with a good variety. The food was decent, and I was glad to substitute a tempeh patty on my burger, but the tempeh itself was a bit disappointing (it seemed like it was just a cooked piece of tempeh with no seasoning or marinade). That said, the rest of the food was pretty good. Stopped by the store afterward, where I picked up some Hopslam mechandise and a sixer of 2015 Third Coast Old Ale. I'm glad to have finally gotten here.

I was her very briefly but it was a good experience. It has a worn, feeling. Tap list has twenty or so beers. Service was kind of lacking. I was ignored for several minutes while standing at the bar, but they were nice after that. I can't imagine when I will be in Kalamazoo again and I am glad I had the chance to stop here.

3 o'clock on a Saturday and it's already packed, it must be good. We didn't want to wait an hour for a table so we just had some beers. Great beers! A cool place. Very clean and helpful staff.

This is an amazing place! The corridor to the barroom to the loft, and then the two different outside areas, at one of which (I'm pretty sure) they do live shows. The tap list was pretty awesome. I always hope for more limited, epic concoctions, but then, who doesn't? They had a cool little gift shop too, complete with growler fills to-go.

It's a nice scene, especially with the recent expansion. I've been here many many times, and it's always been good. Very large selection, something like 20 beers on per day. Food is ok, nothing to blow your hair back but certainly better than leaving to get it. The bartenders....not so sure about them. I've had a number of them give either bad or wrong information about beer, and quantity allowed. I've had multiple bad experiences with service, including total denial that a beer was infected or wrong. Not sure many of them know much about the beer they're serving. Luckily I rarely require their input.

Big cafe that is "eccentricly" decorated. Service was a bit slow when we sat down, but improved. Plenty of beer on tap from mainstays to specialty beers available only there. Everything I had was great, including my duck cubano sandwich. Yum to the food and the beer!

Nice place with over 25 of their own brews on tap (very reasonably priced). Decent bar food with a couple of vegetarian options. Wait staff are very friendly although my server was not very knowledgeable about their beers.

Hud eplace with big bar room, dining room, and various outside areas including one with a stage. Nice selection of their beers, decent food, great service. Prices were a bit on the higher side, especially for the food, but nothing crazy. Can be a bit loud with young student types though. Next door they have a store with merchandise, beer and lots of homebrewing equipment. Good place, the store makes it just a bit better than others in my book.
