Silphium  (59) East Lansing, Michigan | February 14, 2011
Interesting brewpub in an old funeral home. Beer hall ambiance with booths and small tables on the walls, long hall tables in the center of the pub, and a horseshoe-shaped bar where caskets used to rest. Service was spotty. Seven beers, two ciders, and two wines were on tap; the beers were all quite good and varied. The food was a real standout; we tried the tomato bisque with flying fish eggs, the roasted beet and goat cheese tartine, and a wonderful, rich cassoulet. The food was flavorful, creative, and filling. A neat place that adds to the diversity of the cityís beer scene. I will return.

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 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.

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.

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.

Update: I dig this place. I have moved out of town and it is always a great place to revisit and get down on some duck nachos and beer. New Brewery, great building. Itís an old funeral parlor with high vaulted ceilings and concrete floor. The owner is trying to do something really cool with the place. there are booths on the outside of the large main room and two very large long euro-style meet&greet tables. Canít wait to go back when the menu is fully operational. I went with my wife the Friday before Xmas and sampled all three beers and ended up ordering the Abbey.

$4.00/pour, with free samples was excellent. Attentive bartender explained that sours werenít available because of the time to age. Very limited selection at this pre-opening, but excellent beer. Very Belgium look increased the ambiance.

One of the better breweries in GR, and that is saying something. The food is really good and the beer is very good too. Belgians arenít always my favorite style but I like pretty much all of thier beers.

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.
