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.

One of my favorite breweries! Although they mostly (only) have their beers on draft, they are worth trying. Flavors are contemporary take on the Belgian style. Also food is delicious and Belgian/french influenced. I recommend the duck nachos!

Great location in an old church. Long wooden tables with plenty of seating. Atmosphere is very cool. Very rustic. 9 beers on tap the evening we were there. Had a sampler flight and all the beers were good. The Zaison was my favorite. All the beers have a belgian flare. Service was excellent. Menu was eclectic. If planning to eat I would check it out online first. Interesting food, but pretty pricy outside of the hamburgers which by the way looked very tasty. They sell some of their beer to go and merchandise in the front of the building

Iíve been wanting to stop in here for a long time, and finally made it in during a day trip to GR. The atmosphere is flawless; it used to be a funeral home, and itís got wings, including the main wing in the former chapel. Staff is friendly and the beers are solid, as is the selection. I didnít eat, but the prices were good. Definitely worth the trip, especially if you enjoy Belgian brews.
