Bell's Brewery Extra Credit
With our original location (Bell’s Eccentric Café) surrounded on three sides by train tracks along with Kalamazoo Ave. on the fourth side, we recognized a need to plan for more space in which to grow early on. In 2003, we opened our Comstock Brewery - a short 12 minute drive away from downtown Kalamazoo.
This is our main brewery and it has grown quite a bit since then. It is also where we offer a variety of tour options throughout the week. Free tours include two samples. See where your favorite Bell’s beers are born. Our tour guides will cover how we approach quality and sustainability as well as a comprehensive history of our 30+ years of brewing right here in Michigan.

Bell's Eccentric Cafe
A lot has changed since Larry Bell started brewing with his 15-gallon soup pot in 1985. But what has not is our commitment to quality, our community and our dedication to brewing flavorful, unfiltered craft beer. One-hundred-percent family-owned and independent, our main brewery offers more than 20 beers for distribution and we are always pushing the envelope with newer, smaller experimental batches. Many are exclusive to the Café, and brewed right next door at our original brewery. We invite you to stop by, relax in the Beer Garden, take a free tour, check out a show and sample local, freshly prepared dishes in our full-service restaurant.

Liquid Note
Music and beer are the best social lubricants known to man! We’ve definitely got music, so we just needed beer. The name Liquid Note Brewing ties itself to music. It started when Mark McPherson and Chris LaPonsie chatted on the phone one Sunday afternoon and Mark suggested that capturing the styles of artists’ music would be an interesting spin on beer. “What does Johnny Cash’s music taste like in a pint glass?” was the question that Mark posed to Chris. Instantly, more ideas started to form and it was evident that the beers would be very easy to design using this philosophy. It is up to you to figure out the artist that goes along with each beer! We hope you enjoy our Musically Infused™ brews!
