This place is great for the many beers to choose on tap, food is ok but mostly appetizers, but what makes this place the bad ass it is would be drinking good craft beer while listening to bad ass performers that have included Great American Taxi, Greensky Bluegrass, Keller Williams, and Yonder Mountain Stringband which of course was good when Jeff Austin was in the band. CHEERS!

The tap room has a very nice atmosphere with a big restaurant full of tables and about 10 stools at the bar. Snagged a couple of bar stools with a friend. Had a lunch special and a flight of beers. The food was good but not memorable. The beer on tap was really no better than the bottled versions I find in my beer store. I was expecting two hearted ale to be even better at the brewery. It's not. If you are a huge Bell's Fan you're going to love this place. Otherwise, it's nothing special except for the nice restaurant.

I've been to Bell's Brewery 3 times. Each time they were busy but there was room for us to be seated right away. The board at Bell's is always loaded with draft only Bell's beer options so I've never had a beer at Bell's that I could buy in a store. And I've never been disappointed in any of the beers at Bell's. The food menu is large and top notch. Service is very good, at the bar or a table. The store has every Bell's item you could want and a nice selection of their beers. The first time I bought Hopslam was at the Ball's store. Bottom line is I always look forward to visiting Bell's.

Bell's is one of the best. Eccentric Cafe is an amazing place where you can catch a big name musically, chill with a glass of a special batch in the garden, eat good food, and catch good vibes. The selection is amazing and nothing beats a fresh Two-Hearted. Nothing!

Beer selection is great and some brewery only options are always top notch. The food is average and with no table service, can be a drag to order. The merch store could be larger as well, but we all really are here for the beer and Bell's is world class.
