Bell’s Brewery Tour Voted Among The Best In The U.S.
Bell's Brewery Tour has been named as one of the best in the United States.
Bell's Brewery was one of ten breweries nominated for USA Today’s 2019 10Best Reader’s Choice travel awards and landed the the No. 2 spot on the list.
The final Top 10 rankings can be found on the 10Best website now and will be shared soon by USA TODAY.
Bell's welcomes tens of thousands of guests every year. The Eccentric Café and original brewery in downtown Kalamazoo and the main brewery seven miles east in Comstock, are destinations for craft beer fans from around the world.
The tours blend an extensive knowledge of Bell’s and craft beer with incredible storytelling. "We couldn’t be prouder of this recognition, especially when it comes from our fans. There are still so many who have not made the trek from Kalamazoo to see this incredible space. As the 7th largest craft brewery in the U.S., we are very fortunate to have the best brewery tour in the Midwest, right here in our own back yard,” said Shelly Claflin, Bell’s Tour Manager.
Free tours (all ages welcome) are held Wednesday through Sunday at Bell’s main brewery in Comstock and on weekends at its original downtown Kalamazoo brewery. Each Comstock tour includes free samples for those 21 and up. Specialty tours are also offered throughout the year. Examples include a Hopslam and Two Hearted focused tour as well as special Reach for the Sun tours on Oberon Release Day. The specialty tours are limited and tend to sell-out fast.
Each Bell’s brewery tour covers the history of Bell’s and brewing throughout the years in addition to sustainability, packaging, ingredients, quality and more.
