Located in beautiful downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan, the Eccentric Café, located next to the Bell's General Store, is home to a unique offering of craft beer, live music, entertainment, delicious food and more.

Any given time, we have about 20+ different beers on tap. Many are exclusive to the Cafe and are brewed right next door at our original brewery - just look for the flying eccentric guy next to the beer names on the Draft Board when you visit.

Take some time to look around. We hope to see you soon.

Beer to go: The Bell's General Store, located right next door to the Cafe, now features a Growler Station with up to four options. Empty growlers are $18 and currently, we are only able to fill Bell's growlers (we will fill most other vessels soon though). There is also the Eccentric Cafe only 750ML bottle series, not to mention beer by the bottle, six-pack and case.

Firkins: Stop by and see what's on the beer engine.

Flypaper wsg Rootstand ($6 adv/$8 day of)
With soulful vocals, fiercely elegant guitars, and a high energy rhythm section, Fly Paper never fail to amaze and inspire crowds throughout the country with their original songs. Micaela's voice is often compared to that of Fiona Apple and Norah Jones. Her guitar playing carries on the traditions of Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmore, and Jimmy Page. Bassist Joe Chamberlin fills the space between with a modern rock style grounded in classic rock sensibilities. Sam Rice brings to the drums, the rock groove of Jimmy Chamberlin and the flair of Buddy Rich, while Saxman/Keyboardist Marty McLean puts the sax back in rock one note at a time. The four piece band fuses elements of rock, folk, and blues into an unforgettable musical experience. For over ten years, Rootstand has set course from the uplands and urban jungles of Michigan to seek their fortune on the seas and sounds of the roots of America and beyond. From fair shores to foul weather, Rootstand has remained stout-hearted; an honor that is reflected in the strength of its crew.

Buckwheat Zydeco wsg Joshua Davis Trio ($18adv/$20 day of)
If you’ve gotten into zydeco music, or felt its influence, or watched the world celebrate this great aspect of Louisiana culture over the past 30+ years it’s likely been because of Buckwheat Zydeco. “Stanley ‘Buckwheat’ Dural leads one of the best bands in America. A down-home and high-powered celebration, meaty and muscular with a fine-tuned sense of dynamics…propulsive rhythms, incendiary performances.” --The New York Times
