Bell's Brewery Eccentric Cafe

355 E Kalamazoo Ave
269-382-2332

About Us:

On June 11, 1993, Bell's Brewery became the first Michigan brewery to serve beer by the glass to the public. The Eccentric Café offers customers a chance to taste many of Bell's well known beers, as well as small batch brews that are not distributed outside of the pub. Visitors enjoy its warm atmosphere and spacious beer garden and patio. The Cafe also features interesting food, an extensive collection of art and ephemera, as well as live entertainment throughout the week (music, movies, theater, homebrew demonstrations and more).

In the beginning of 2010, renovations to the downtown Kalamazoo facility began with plans to make significant improvements to the existing Café and transform former warehouse space into a separate, dedicated, and state-of-the-art music venue. 

The Cafe officially reopened on March 28, 2011, allowing us to host musicians and other entertainment acts from across the country. Renovations also included expanded restrooms, additional seating options, a transformed Beer Garden, a new patio and a new main entry way.

Doing 4/5 just because I wish they switched up the food menu more. Their food is good so having some variety and the ability to try new stuff would be fun. Beer is great, obviously, service is decent but not amazing. Their outdoor space is wonderful and I like that inside there is open/self-seating near the bar and hostess seating elsewhere. Parking can be tough so carpool!

Great, locally sourced food, a lot of taps of their beers, really cool interior. And their brewery tour(at their Comstock Brewing location nearby) with Austin is great! One of the most informative brewery tours I've been on and their facility is awesome! And so much history with the brewery and creator, definitely check it out if in Kalamazoo!

Good atmosphere. The food was good. I had the pulled pork sandwich. Nice flavor, but portion too much for sandwich. Pork falling out while trying to eat, juice dripping everywhere. If the portion was smaller would have been perfect. Coleslaw a bit wierd, what's with the big chunks and onion, needs work. Fries were awesome. Good beers too.

Good selection of beers! Although I'm not a beer drinker. The cheese plate was good. Their sandwiches are popular too.

A rather interesting place. You order you food from a window, usually a long line but the atmosphere and the food are well worth it. The beer garden is really cool
