There are few cooler sights than seeing 20 Bell's taps alongside each other. Their options range from the easy-to-find Two-Hearted, to the rarest, like Eccentric Ale. Their Cafe is located in the middle of a forgotten railroad town, where the locals avidly support their jeweled export. The atmosphere is warm, even in the winter, as it is decorated like a Midwestern ski lodge. The food is OK; mostly slightly unique sandwiches with chips. And the souvenir shop nextdoor is packed with homebrewing supplies and memorabilia. If you are a fan of their beer at all, you will cherish your time spent at the Cafe.

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.
