LarryAndBeerBox.jpgAbout Bell's Brewery

Bell's Brewery, Inc. began in 1985 with a quest for better beer and a 15 gallon soup kettle. Since then, we've grown into a regional craft brewery that employs more than 200 people over a 20 state area, in addition to Puerto Rico and Washington DC. The dedication to brewing flavorful, unfiltered, quality craft beers that started in 1985 is still with us today. We currently brew over 20 beers for distribution as well as many other small batch beers that are served at our pub in Kalamazoo, the Eccentric Cafe, (see below). Our ongoing goal is to brew thoughtfully, creatively and artistically. We strive to bring an authentic and pleasant experience to all of our customers through our unique ales and beers.

Take some time to look around. We are always adding new features. Highlights include:

The Eccentric Cafe

On June 11, 1993, Bell's Brewery, Inc. became the first Michigan brewery to serve beer by the glass to the public. The Eccentric Cafe offers customers a chance to taste many of our 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. The Eccentric Cafe also features interesting food, an extensive collection of art and ephemera, and live music. The Eccentric Cafe's entertainment schedule can be found here or by calling 269-382-2332.

The Cafe underwent a significant expansion and officially reopened on March 28, 2011. The core of the project was a new, dedicated music venue in what used to be a warehouse and now hosts musicians from across the country. Eight additional tap handles were added, bringing our current draft selection to 20. The restrooms were expanded and additional seating options were also part of the renovations in addition to a transformed Beer Garden, new patio and a new entry way. Take a look.

Public tours of our original brewery in downtown Kalamazoo, connected to the Eccentric Café, are also available on Saturdays and Sundays. Visit our Tours page for more information or email our Tour Coordinator.

The Eccentric Cafe is also on Facebook.

Bell's beer-to-go (including beers available at our Growler Station), wearables, trinkets, and homebrewing supplies in addition to disc golf discs and bags are available seven days a week at the Bell's General Store, 355 E.
