Default Good Place's to hit in Kalamazoo??

I'll be in Kalamazoo this weekend for a hockey tournament. I was looking for recommendation for a god brew pub type place to hit. Thanks

Indeed the Eccentric Cafe!
http://www.bellsbeer.com/eccentric-cafe/

They have some brews they only sell in the Cafe' plus you can get a Two Hearted Ale from the tap as fresh as they get.... OMG that is great stuff!!!!

EDIT: and the food is good also

There are several fine choices in Kzoo, but Bells is THE place to go. http://www.bellsbeer.com

There is also: The Olde Peninsula Brewpub and restaurant near there, but I'd check out Bells first. Olde Peninsula Brewpub also makes a tasty Root Beer though...

I don't know if it is still there or not. I drove through Kzoo one time and ate at a place called Bilbo's Pizza. They brewed their own beer on site and the pizza was good. Doesn't compare to Bell's but it was still a nice place to sit down and have a few beers at.

Bell's #1 choice
I also recommend the http://kalamazoobeerexchange.com/
The price changes based on demand. Good beers on tap and draft.

It's one block west of Bell's.

I can't be of much help here. I've only ever been to the airport and Deja Vu Gentleman's Club to see their famous "1000s of Beautiful Girls and 3 Ugly Ones".

Went to Bilbos a few weeks ago. Beer was ok, and the pizza was pretty good.

Beer Exchange is pretty cool, but if you are trying to grab food there as well, the wait times are ridiculous. I was there a few weeks ago for a birthday, and our group of 4 had a 2+ hour wait for a table, which is crazy.

Bells
Old Peninsula
Bilbos
Gallaghers
Brewsters
Kalamazoo Beer Exchange

I'm biased towards Gallaghers, since I have my name on a plaque on the wall and a mug with my name on it =)

I wish Bells would bring oracle back on tap, and Dark Wheat. Two amazing beers IMO.
