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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
