i love bells. and i'm so glad i got to finally go to the eccentric cafe! i love the concept of hands-off, no waiter service. just head up to the bar and order your beer and food. ... Read more
since we live in chicago and can find a lot of bells on tap at our local bars, we tried the specialty ones. i liked them all - and even the sangria, which was different but tasty. tons of events and things going on - we were there the day of bells prom which sounded awesome. stopped by the general store on the way home to bring home some big ol bottles. i love the tap cam on the site, so you can see whats actually on tap before you go. it's pretty busy and parking can kind of suck. id love to drink on the patio out here!

This is a must stop for any beer lover in Kalamazoo. Bell's is well known for its Oberon and Two Hearted Ale, but at their cafe you can sample a wide variety of small batch brews. This is the site of the original brewery and you can even get a tour of where it all started (and where they still make the cafe-only small batches). The cafe also offers great food, a wonderful outdoor beer garden and many special events, often with live music. Be sure to check out the general store for Bell's gear and home-brewing supplies. This is truly one of my favorite spots in Kzoo.

Great beers. Not a lot of vegan friendly items. Long lines. Crowded space. Great eccentric decor.

Very cool place, definitely stop in for some unique beers when you're in the area (lots of drafts that aren't distributed outside the cafe)
