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.

I will start by saying that I am not a huge Belgium guy. The beer was good, not great. The atmosphere is what sold me though. It is in an old funeral home actually, but reminded more of a small chapel. That coupled with the old wood tables made me feel like I was in Europe. The food was absolutely amazing. Split a burger and monte cristo and I would go back just for the food. Should be nice in the summer when they open their outdoor seating as well. If I liked Belgiumís better this place would have been a homerun.

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.

Went on a Friday night. Hopping place! Great server. The energy was palpable. Had beer snacks and appetizers for food: complimented the beer great. Loved the Abbey Ale. Canít wait to go back.

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.

$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.

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.
