Busy on a Friday evening we were still seated quickly after grabbing a beer at the bar. A nice selection of belgian style beers. Nothing transcendant for me but all of the beers were good. Reasonable prices for the quality. Food was good, but were dissappointed that they were out of half of the entrees, all of which sounded great (it was 9:30pm). Would definitely come back for the food, beer and ambiance.

Maybe the coolest looking bar I have ever been to. It is an old funeral home turned into a brewpub that has a church like feel with stained glass windows everywhere. Servers were knowledgeable and attentive. They only offer about 10 beers, all of them made in-house. I was worried that it would be nothing but Quads and Tripels, but they were more diverse than that. All the beers have a Belgian twist, but many different styles are represented. We didnít like the food all that much, we felt is was too fancy for itís own good. Prices were right, especially since you get a 16 oz. pour in a goblet rather than a pint glass. Great idea, great beers. You will have a good time if you go here.

A great restored old church, that for once is almost as cool as it sounds. Service was amazing with a great knowledge of beer. Selection was pretty large, almost 12. Prices are a bit high, but quality is there. Although not all the beer was to my taste, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This is an amazing place. The beer selections are amazing -- besides the normally available stuff, thereís a good variety of specials, as well as a Firkin. And the food is top notch: locally sourced ingredients, and more of a higher end restaurant than a brewpub. Love the outdoor seating, too. Icing on the cake is that the beer is among the best Iíve had.

Very cool ambiance, it looks like an old church. Good service, though they get crowded easily. Small beer selection but thereís always something nice on tap. Rotating wood-aged beer always, as well. Havenít ordered the food, but I hear itís good. Decently priced, maybe a little on the high side, but overall itís worth a visit.

Had dinner on the covered porch on a Saturday night - got right in. Did a sampler of four beers and tried the fried duck livers and duck nachos. Good beers, above average food, and very nice service. Not overly pricy. It was busy and loud but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Grabbed a four-pack of mixed singles and a glass to go. Would definitely recommend and would go again.

This place is similar to their beers. A little off the wall and interesting would just about explain it. Their menu is a bit eccentric, but thatís the point, right? Try something new. Very nice place.

On friday end of the afternoon in November. What a surprise !!! Amazing ambience, looks like an old monks dining room. The food is amazing, we add a reservation in a restaurant in front of Vivant, but next time, itís here that were are going to have diner !!! Good selection of their own beers and itís a great selection, they were all great, we tasted all of the 10 beers on the menu. Canít wait to come back.

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.
