This brewery is one of my favorites (and I've been to many across the country). It is a beautiful indoor space with a very large variety of tasty beer sure to hit any beer drinkers palate. The food is creative and tasty. They have great live bands and a very cool outdoor space. We will be back...often

We ate here on a busy Saturday night. The food blew me out of the water, I was not expecting it to be that good. Only complaint is that it is super loud, but drink a couple beers and it goes away. The addition was much needed. The menu is not huge, but they offer creative dishes. The poutine is... More

You would think Bell's would spend some effort in getting these reviews properly organized. The main brewery offers no food, no store - it's a tour of a brewery. Education, nice views of some of the brewery, and samples. But it's NOT the Eccentric Cafe' restaurant...

I'm not a huge fan of Bell's beer, but I was told to visit their location and see what it's all about. The merch shop wasn't only Bell's merch, but also coupled with a homebrewing store which I though was really cool. The Beir Garten was extremely cool and a nice place to relax an enjoy the beer. I would... More

I came here with a group of friends for my bachelor party. No, it was nothing like that. Rather it was pretty low key and this place was everything I wanted and more. After we got our first round we were seated at a table outside. On a summer evening, it was absolutely perfect. We had some gourmet apps that... More

I'm new to the area and stopped at Bell's. The place is a gem! I'm looking forward to going to a yoga event there as well as a trivia night. Definitely a great place to check out!

When you walk into the front door you see a sign posted that all pets need to be placed and kept in carriers. Service dogs the exception. First off I have four dogs so by all means love dogs. My husband and I decided we wanted something to eat prior to our flight so we went to Bells. Our waitress... More

First of all, this listing is for Bell's Brewery tour which is on Krum Ave. in Galesburg. Many people have mistakenly left reviews they meant for Bell's Eccentric Cafe in Kalamazoo (http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g42354-d1541268-Reviews-Bell_s_Eccentric_Cafe-Kalamazoo_Kalamazoo_County_Michigan.html). This is the brewery tour, not a restaurant. That all being said, we enjoyed the brewery tour. Very impressive building and facilities. The tour guide was knowledgeable and... More

I have been to Bells several times when the place was so busy you had to wait 30 min to get a beer!? Beware if you are a female and sit at the bar do not expect to get served more than one beer!! This evening I was cut off after one beer! I was respectful yet offended and embarrassed... More

the beer flights let you sample the wonderful beers, bell's has to offer. the settings is all brick and old, just a nice place to drink beer and eat. they also have a firkin tapper, before co2 and beer gas they would put some yeast and sugar in the keg to build up pressure and pump the beer by hand...
