Large place, tons of interesting beers on, with a 6 beer sampler for 12 bucks (yum, Hopslam!). Food was OK. Live music was a big plus. Efficient staff. Worth a look.

A most excellent drinking spot, and a destination if you’re in the area, of course. New beer for me was the Sweet Potato Stout, along with a nice aged keg of Batch 7000 (on tap Dec 22). You know you’re coming here so why even read my review? Instead just look at my photographs from my visit to get a sense of what this place is like: http://flickr.com/photos/michaeljames/2152430911/

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 don’t need to wait for servers, The cup of soup I had was pretty good but I didn’t 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. I’ve only been once but this could be a fun place to hang out if I was in Kalamazoo.

A myriad of spaces, indoor pub, live venue hall and outdoor space. All quite nice and friendly. Service was great and friendly, always letting you taste before you buy. They have sample trays as well. I didn’t eat, just had some bar snacks. Really comfortable and nice place with tons of unique and interesting beers.

Definitely the taproom/brewery experience that all others should be compared against. Lots of great taps and taproom exclusives available in all kinds of sizes. Great atmosphere both in the vibe of the place and the physical atmosphere. I can’t wait to go back.

(Visited 02/2012): Bell’s Eccentric Café is located on the East side of downtown Kalamazoo, coincidentally on East Kalamazoo Ave. There is a private lot to the side of the building, and more parking at the store. The interior has two individual sides. The left side is the brewpub and features a bar along the right and a walk-up window for placing food orders. A chalkboard behind the bar lists the available beers. The other side is where they showcase music. Lots of wood and breweriana adorn the brewpub side and that is where we spent our evening. There are around 20 Bells beers on draught at the Café, including several one-offs and rarities. On my visit these included 2 of the Experimental Series, Mead, Dagger Stout, Wild One, Raspberry Wild One and Golden Rye. The store had some goodies as well, like Black Note and Harvest Ale. There is no table service at the brewpub, but the bartenders were friendly if harried. Food at Bells consists primarily of sandwiches and finger food. My sandwich was not bad. Overall this spot should be on every beer lover’s must-visit list.

Stopped by on a Monday afternoon. I like the ambience. Big, tall, industrial feeling with an odd assortment of decorations... keeping with the theme I guess. Any place with a picture of President Kennedy on the wall is OK by me. 10 beers or so on tap. I had the mead, the only one I hadn’t had, which was decent. I didn’t try the food. Service was ample, and they did give me a smaller sample than advertised, which was nice as it was 10%. Prices seemed decent. Construction is going on in the back, as the tap room expands. Merchandise and homebrew shop in the front. The people were nice there too, if not too helpful, and prices were OK. Overall a nice stop.

This place is gorgeous. It’s in a large building which resembles a church on the inside with cathedral ceilings and stained glass. There is a cozy upstairs and an outside garden area as well. The selection is terrific. The expected Bells beers are available along with at least 6 rare offerings. I ate some soft pretzels with one of the best mustards and some kind of parmesan dip. Very delicious snack. The music was hip and suited the atmosphere perfectly. A general store is also here with beer to go and tons of cool swag and homebrew supplies. I loved my visit here, I consider it a must stop.

The brewpub was amazing. I really liked it. Amazing beer and good food. Nice atmosphere and it wasn’t crowded. Decent prices. Thumbs up. The gift shop (general store) was a bit disappointing.

An ordinary town, although some eccentric names of stores. A retail store with many of the regular classics. The bar itself is fine as long as you get here before 4 pm, when people must line up to get beer. A great patio, but you carry beer, in big plastic cups over. A good selection of beers on tap, although I was not crazy about the carbonation, which was Enoz salty. Some of the classics, I think, are better in the bottle. Pretty friendly though. Bartendress went through some training. I would like more details about the beers in the literature available to us. I was expecting more.
