It's amazing that this was my first time to Bell's actual brewery. The beer produced by Larry Bell is absolutely outstanding and being that I live only an hour away I figured it was time to get off my ass and go there. Parking and entrance are hard to find, you kind of have to go off the main street to get in. This place is basically one huge ass room and a smaller upstairs and then the beer garden. I thought the beer garden was awesome and would be a really cool way to spend a nice summer afternoon. Bartender was nice and gave me many free samples. They had like 3 or 4 non bottled beers on tap and then the rest of the line. A few wines and some pop as well. This place has two worlds to it. Kind of a dark place on the inside and grimmy but chill and then very bright and pretty on the outside. Food definitely was eccentric and I really want to try that ostrich burger next time I go but I had already eaten so no food this time. Definitely a must visit if in K-Zoo

Food is really good but not a lot of options right now. They are expanding to include a new, full kitchen area which will change my food rating.
They always have tons of beer options including a lot of brewery only selections

The brewery was under construction when I went. Really killed the vibe and overall experience.

Always a nice place to go hang out and see live music, especially in the summertime.

Great selection of beers; had fresh Hopslam on tap. The bartenders were super friendly and the food selection was great. Very vegetarian friendly and much better than regular bar food.

The staple brewery of Michigan. Any beer you drink from Bell's is consistent quality and enjoyable.

Nearly as good of a music venue as it is a brewery. A nice facility is split in 2 sides, one for dinner and great beer, and the other for great beer and good tunes. Good selection of their beers available. Its one of the go-to stops if you're ever in Kalamazoo.

What a great place! It has a large selection and variety of quality beers (very large for a single source repertoire), a variety of spaces for customers, and loads of friendly beer aficionados. In addition, there's a performance venue under the same roof with a secondary, smaller bar. Unfortunately, I didn't get to the store just across the parking lot since it closed much earlier.
