Bells eccentric cafe is an amazing atmosphere with q top notch selection of beers (duh) ... Pretty much the only reason i wished i still lived in Kalamazoo. Pre expansion the cafe was far too packed any evening or weekend for my tast but with the new expansion the place is perfect! During the summer there is an amazing beer garden that's fun to hang out in. The original cafe has an amazing charm and the food (at least the old food) was very tasty. Overall a must stop for any beer lover in the area

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.
