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 they offer self guided tours from 10am - 4pm. You walk in on the ground level. Walk upstairs and you literally walk through the brewhouse. What you see in the brewhouse will determine if they are brewing or not. If they are not brewing, you may look into the grinder, mash tun, etc.. You can then walk and see the original smaller brewhouse, finally continue on to the bottling and packaging viewing deck (windows). When I visited there was a person stationed in the brewhouse, he was knowledgable about the brewing process and product line... and made sure I know I could ask questions.
On Saturday guided tours are available.
This is a great way to see one of the United States largest craft brewers -- the facility is beautiful. Bell's is currently the 7th largest craft brewer in the United States.
