I was really excited to finally make it to Bell's, and was not disappointed. The place is beautiful inside with stained glass windows and a lot of cool trinkets hanging on the wall and an upstairs lounge. There isn't a lot of seating, but quite a few people standing around. There was an overall merry and calm atmosphere, which I loved. Although it was quite chilly outside, the patio/ beer garden was still open for seating. I could tell this place would be amazing in the summer with a small stage at the end and some trellises for hops. The beer is cash only and served at the bar only. I didn't mind this at all, the bartenders where polite and efficient. I was just a tad disappointed with the tap list. All the standards were there- Best Brown, Two Hearted, Amber, Third Coast Beer, Pale Ale, and Porter. Some of the more notable beers were 8000, Scotch Ale, Oatmeal Stout, and Rye Stout. I was kind of hoping for Expedition, Third Coast Old Ale, or something barrel aged, but looking back at what I just wrote that they had, there really isn't a lot to piss and moan about. There is food available, but you have to order it at a window I think, but it seemed to be pretty decent for what I saw. Overall, I will definitely be going back, the place is awesome.
