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.

On paper, this place looked really awesome - brewery built in an old church, belgian beers, interesting food menu. But the beer at this place was very disappointing. If I am in Grand Rapids in the future, I would want to give this place another shot, because I love belgian beers and the atmosphere there is really cool.

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.

I really, really wanted to love this place. Unbelievable atmosphere in an old church- Belgian-style beers- great service.... what more could you ask for? How about decent beers? I found their beers quite poor and ruined what would have otherwise been a sublime experience.

Nice brewpub in an old church. Had 10 beers in tap one cask ale. Eclectic food menu with rabbit pot pie as well as steak and a burger. Staff knew the beer. The beers are belgianish with an American flavor, with an Amarillo hop ale, a Belgian ipa, last night ranged from okish to good. My favorite was the contemplation ale. The Amarillo ale was a great session beer. If in grand rapids this has to be on the too do list.

Nice little brewery with a converted chapel serving as the taproom. Itís a Flemish style setting, consisting of long tables with bench seating. Very cool ambinance. The place has been quite busy each time Iíve been in. The focus is on Belgian styles here, which arenít always my thing, but Iíve really enjoyed the ones Iíve had here. Iíve had no issues with the service. There are a lot of hipsters in the crowd here, which can be annoying, but does add to the character of the place. Food seems unduly expensive, so I havenít tried it, though Iím told itís excellent. Thereís a TV in the corner, but itís powered by an exercise bike, so if you want to watch the big game, be prepared to work for it. All in all, a great little place.
