Bell's is my Kalamazoo local favourite, by far, and the value of going down to the Eccentric Cafe has been going up consistently over the years.

The basics: this is a releatively small, wood heavy, quirky atmosphered tap room with a handful of Bell's beers on tap. No televisions, just some music for entertainment. Historically, they haven't had a lot of specials available, but the last time I visited they had a number of them including Cyser, Mrs. Bell's Pale, and a collection of 3 experimental pales, each brewed with the same base but different hops. If they can keep that sort of special range on tap I might have to stop by more often in the future!

In the summer, the atmosphere is improved by their rather large beer garden outside, in the winter, the inside is decent, but it tends to be fairly cold with several tables and the bar available for seating.

Prices on the beers are generally reasonable, 2-3$ for a small glass, a bit more for a pint. Bell's, unfortunately, do not sell growlers.

The staff is generally exceptional though,and are quite familiar with the beers that are available.

Overall: if you like Bell's beer, this is a necessary pilgrimage, particularly given the tap room only offerings that have been popping up lately.
