very unique building and awesome place to have a beer or three. the food menu is pretty goofy and definitely not for everyone. the beers are all above average or better - the belgian ipa is particulary good. sours are highly recommended as well.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Been here a couple times now. Really beautiful place as you walk through the front doors into an old funeral church. Long tables go from the entry way all the way to the bar which are then surrounded by booths. Everytime I am here this place seems to be packed. The bar staff was friendly and we grabbed a couple of beers. The ambiance is nice and energetic. Service as I said was good. The selection was better this go arond as they now have about 10 beers on tap. We did end up ordering some frites that were basically just really good french fries. Overall, a cool place that I would go to again only after having my fill of Founderís and Hop Cat.

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.

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.

Really, really cool brewery. In an old church, and they have done an awesome job using the space. It was crowded on a Thursday night, but after a short wait we were able to seat ourselves. The beer list was pretty short, but that doesnít mean I couldnít find anything to get! I started with the Sour Batch #2 (which wasnít exactly sour, but still good) and also got the Zaison. We also ordered food, the burger...which was really good, served on a pretzel bun. It is pricey, but worth it. The only complaint I have it that it was a little too dark inside, which made it hard to get a good look at my beers. I will be back for sure, and I would recommend it to all beer lovers. *OH, and one of the servers told me they are working on a Cask system!
