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.

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.

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.

Awesome new place. The ambiance is weird and cool, kind of like going to church except fun. Love the drinking tables and the setup. Could be bigger as itís been very crowded every time Iíve been there. Food is fantastic, have to try the burger itís amazing!. Beer selection has gotten better each time Iíve been there, but some of the beers are lacking. Great place, great food, great beer.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Fun place that makes for a great "double" with The Green Well across the street. Nice Belgian beers and creative beer snacks to match (think we had Maple Nuts with Bacon). Everything is top shelf here - when they brought my wife a coffee it was in its own French Press. If you are doing Founders/Hopcat, I would add this to your Grand Rapids stops.
