Decided to stop in after passing by on I- 94 for years...got there just before noon but already most seats were taken, a few small tables by the street. Ordered food and a 12oz snifter of Hopslam at the bar. Didn't seem like the beer selection was all that great but had to drive anyway so probably a good thing. Food came out quickly ( pulled pork sandwich) and was pretty good, average to slightly better. Not a big menu, but several item that look interesting. The atmosphere is nothing unusual with a few families mixed into the patrons and few business types.
Next door at the general store, nice selection of Swag at decent prices. Beer coolers well stocked and nice selection oh home brewing supplies..
Will visit again to see what the vibe is on a non- weekday lunchtime crowd.
Overall a pleasant experience.

The Gastro Pub at the original site of Bell's Brewery is a great little place. Raw stonework inside, beer garden out back. They also have concerts and a swag shop. They have a great selection of Bell's beers, including many that are not commercially available. Sadly, the kitchen had closed by the time I got there, so I was not able to eat anything. More room for beer!!!

The vibe in this brewpub is near perfect in my mind. The only thing that I don't like is the cramped area and typical line-up for ordering your food and beer at the bar. But that's a minor issue since everything else is outstanding. The beer list always has a bunch of the standard menu year-round beers, and a bunch of seasonals, specialty and experimental beers. And there is never a brewing flaw to be found. The food menu is not lengthy, but there are enough choices to satisfy most people, especially if pub food with an upward twist is okay with you. This pub is a must-visit for any craft beer lover.
