A: “Low key” would be the best way to describe this place. The brewing co. itself is super well known especially in Michigan, but driving past you could almost miss the place. When you get in there is an outdoor patio and two inside areas (one for music and the other is a relaxing pub area with two stories). Dim lights, eccentric masks and tapestries on the walls, no tvs... this place is beer heaven.

Q: always top notch beer

S: My bartenders was super nice, letting my try all sorts of free samples of beer before I decided.

S: They served 17 beers on tap 7 of which I believe were only sold there on tap.

F: Had a wonderful fulling beef sandwhich. my roommate had a veggie burger, she said it was pretty decent.

V: most beers were between 3.25 and 4.50 for 16oz, you would usually pay that much if you were drinking that same beer somewhere else. To drink beer of this quality you expect to pay a little more, so the prices are reasonable.

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.
