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.

Service was very good (Jeff D), the food is so well prepared and presented it is almost out of place in a brewpub setting. Beer, the Zaison (saison) was one of the best I have had. Was disappointed in their double IPA. Had a sample of the barrel aged Solitude which was very good, The only down sign was the noise level.

Cool little place in a converted church. Very young crowd. Food and beer are both excellent, both with changing selections. Quite unique atmosphere and feel. The menu has been diverse and pairs well with their beer selection. The staff is knowledgable, passionate and fast. Great place for groups of any size with their long tables. Located in a solid, growing community.

Brewpub a couple miles outside of downtown Grand Rapids. Built in an old church - complete with stain glass and all. Tried several of the beers some were good, others not as much. This is a Belgian beer bar and the food was along the same lines. The menu didnít appeal too much to me, but found comfort in a burger - which was outstanding. Service was extremely attentive and our waiter had a good understanding of the offerings.

This is probably my favorite brewery in GR at this point. The ambiance is great, the food outstanding and the wait staff has a deep knowledge of their beers and brewing in general. The beers, in general, arenít as good as Founders, but its smaller and less crowded usually.

This is a really cool space. Itís an old chapel of some sort. The bar mirrors the arch of the altar. Somebody put a lot of money into it. The beer is quite good. All Belgian style but with a little more exploration than, say, Ommegang. The food is pretty good, but not quite what they talk it up to be. Duck confit nachos were yummy. We ordered sausage as well. It came on a bed of the most disgusting kraut Iíve had in a long time. Definitely was par cooked hours prior and dried to crap. Sausage was pretty dry too. Itís worth a visit. The beer is too good not to.

Awesome spot, great service, really good beer and an appreciably expansive selection of beers. A small but singular complaint - the samplers are frustratingly overpriced. (Albeit, they were probably the sexiest samplers iíve seen.) Otherwise the prices were decent, including the retail options. A great time and I will make a point to go back.

Went here back in June but forgot to rate. Friends had samplers, I had a few Belgians. Everything really good - my kind of place. Food was really good too. Food and beer prices very reasonable. Very good service for our large group.

It is flat out beautiful and reminds me of belgian beer hall/church. They have a good beer and bartender even gave me taste of the cask brew. Highly recommended.
