We went here for dinner and were hoping to watch a football game. Well there is not a single TV in the entire place which made for some time to sit and bond. The beer is the best in Michigan and the food was pretty good as well. I had the Jambalaya and it was good but could have been... More

We stopped at Bell's after 1PM and were shocked at how busy it was. We ordered our food and sat outside. All four lunches were just what we needed. The turkey and avocado sandwich is tasty. My husband had the jambalaya which he wouldn't share. Others had the pulled pork and rueben. We did not have the beer flight which... More

A friend of mine celebrated his wedding reception at Bell's. The Back Room was fantastic for a mid-size gathering. Private bar with space for eating, dancing, socializing. The staff was great and kept drinks poured and food stocked. Good was catered by the cafe and was delicious (BBQ, Mac n Cheese, salad,beans, etc.) and the beers were exceptional! Definitely recommend... More

Bell's has a great selection of their own craft beers, some of which are not bottled and for sale outside of the pub. The food was amazing! The pub reminded me of England in that you have to go to the bar to order your drinks and food - they don't come and serve you.

Bells allows Smoking in the out door area. It is legal. Smokers should enjoy and those who don't smoke be prepared for dirty ashtrays and the smell of smoke while eating (even outdoors). Bells took the low road.

If you are a beer aficionado you must visit Bell's Brewery! On a recent trip to Kalamazoo I had a ton of people tell me that I must stop here....believe it - it doesn't not disappoint. They have a plethora of amazing brews (most they make inhouse). The food was great too - I had some house smoked pork tacos....hmmm... More

I really enjoyed going to Bell's. Not only good beer, but cool decorations. Only downside - SO BUSY! I have been here twice now.

First, a lot of people seem to be mixing up this facility with the Eccentric Cafe downtown Kalamazoo - which makes me wonder if they have been to either. This is the corporate office and new 200bbl production and packaging facility. You can also see the original production brewery here, still in use - 50bbl, I think. Mon - Fri... More

We had a great lunch and some fantastic beers at Bell's. They had a huge selection on tap and trying the flights of beer was a lot of fun. The beer garden is beautiful and looks like a great spot to hang out and hear some music. We're already planning a trip back soon!

First let me say that this brewery is not the same as Bell's Eccentric Cafe, which is the downtown Kalamazoo location. This is the actual brewery. It does not have a taproom or offer food. My husband and I were offered a VIP tour through our membership in the Michigan Brewers Guild. Because this was a special event, our tour... More
