This is a really cool place. The inside looks like an old European church. Beer is great, didnít have the food but it looked really good. Fun atmosphere, will go there anytime.

it was a church or a funeral home, not sure , just know that its properly being used now as a brewery, with real good bone marrow which I guess you could of got at the funeral home, surely not as tasty.

One of the better breweries in GR, and that is saying something. The food is really good and the beer is very good too. Belgians arenít always my favorite style but I like pretty much all of thier beers.

Great place. Just went twice after they did an overhaul of the menu. Duck nachos, bone marrow, poutine... lots of great, interesting choices for pub food. All done very well! Service is great: knowledgeable, prompt, friendly. Take a tour if you can, especially with TJ. Jason, owner/brewer, was kind enough to talk with us a bit--we were starry eyed. Beer, of course, is excellent--if you like Belgian styles, this is the closest thing youíre going to find in Michigan to the real thing. Flights available. Prices are bit... pricey, but food is gastopub plus, so not "unreasonably" pricey (particularly for portions--big!).

Great location. Interesting place. Numbers of their own beers, but nothing else. A few that I tried were a bit off - ciderey, and they were not supposed to be. But I had a "Around the World" with a flight of 15, and it was great just to try that many.

Brewery Vivant is a unique place. Itís a former funeral home I believe so the set up is different. The people working there are friendly and knowledgeable. They only serve their beers and they do a variety of belgian styles which are delicious. Their food is completely amazing, but you have to be willing to shell out some cash for it. I would say the food is worth it, but this is not an everyday pub food type of place. If you are ever in the area this is worth checking out.

A truly singular venue, packed, buzzing and loud on THU "$5 stein night", with service unfortunately ending on weekdays at 11pm. (Thanks to Sarah and Zane for the turbo ride and Seamus for joining us!)
Good & prompt service and fenomenally fresh & inventive Belgian-inspired food, far above US pub grub: juicy red hamburger meat, truffled frites and confits; also that last portion of duck nachos that passed us by looked delicious. Beers are Belgian-inspired to a large degree, above US brewpub average, but could probably benefit from some more time in the tubes to gain more character, especially the abbey style tripels.

Unusual setting in a very nicely converted funeral home chapel. 9 beers on tap at the time of my visit although they usually have 10. U-shaped bar is central and faces a nice display of glassware with a large stained glass window in the background.
