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.

Turkuaz wsg Mister F ($8)
In this regard, as with any band, influences are everything. One cannot escape them as one seeks to carve out a unique sound for themselves. Still, there are so many benefits to having Sly & The Family Stone, Rick James, Parliament and Bohannon in your record collection. With this as the basis for a recipe, Turkuaz adds healthy doses of jittery, world-pop-power groove—reminiscent of Remain In Light era Talking Heads—and a passion for Motown and R&B, resulting in a refreshing twist on the funk idiom.

Ben Daniels Band wsg Phil Barry & Sarah Fuerst ($6)
When Ben Daniels decided he was going to be a musician, it was more than a career choice. A natural poet, this young songwriter went to school on Bob Dylan, Robert Johnson, and Jack White, among others. His lyrics speak directly to a younger generation that hears, sees, and thinks about the very things he’s writing. From their opening song to the finale of their set, the Ben Daniels Band cuts through with their originality, musicianship, and a sound that spans Americana, Blues, Jazz, and Rock.

The Hillary Reynolds Band ($6)
The Hillary Reynolds Band, fronted by award-winning songwriter Hillary Reynolds, is a pinnacle of innovation in today's pop music. The powerhouse foursome makes its' trademark sound by fusing tight vocal harmonies, the flash & polish of cutting-edge production technique, and traditional acoustic instruments for a diversity of sound unachievable in other realms. HRB are 100% Berklee College of Music alum, with diverse talents in songwriting, live performance, orchestration, and production, just to get started.

New Sound Underground (free)
Despite hailing from various places over the country – the Pacific Northwest, the South, the Upper Midwest – New Sound Underground’s members have all become mainstays in the Minneapolis music scene in such wide-ranging genres as hip-hop, reggae, jazz, salsa, funk, R&B, and gospel. This convergence of diverse experience has developed into a natural group dynamic & is a diligently defining characteristic of their unparalleled, signature sound.
