Expand All
Michigan's oldest brewery and one of the oldest craft brewers east of Colorado, Bell's Brewery, Inc. offers distinctive beers including Two Hearted and Oberon, which enjoys a cult-like following and who's release date corresponds with the start of the Major League Baseball season.

The Eccentric Cafe offers customers a chance to taste many of their well known beers, as well as small batch brews that are not distributed outside of the pub. Visitors enjoy its warm atmosphere, spacious beer garden and patio as well as a state of the art entertainment venue.

The Eccentric also features interesting food, an extensive collection of art and ephemera, plus live music and other events throughout the week (trivia, movie nights, square dancing, yoga, etc.).

The Eccentric Cafe's entertainment schedule can be found here.

The Bell's General Store sells Bell's and Kalamazoo merchandise, beer to go, growlers and homebrewing supplies.

Tours of Bell's original brewery are offered on Saturday and Sundays.

They generally run about 30 - 45 minutes and are offered at 12:30pm, 1:30pm, 2:30pm and 3:30pm Saturdays and 1:30pm, 2:30pm, and 3:30pm on Sundays.

Beers marked with the Eccentric Flying Guy on the draft board are typically brewed in Kalamazoo and only available at the Cafe.

Free guided tours are also offered at Bell's Comstock Brewery, a short 10-minute drive away. They are offered  Saturdays at noon and 4 p.m.

The brewhouse was designed for self guided tours as well. All are invited to walk through at their own pace. Observation decks offer a prime viewing of the Bottling Hall, the older 50-barrel brewhouse, fermentation cellars and more.

Everyone is welcome to visit the brewing gallery from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays (except on holidays).
