Busy on a Friday evening we were still seated quickly after grabbing a beer at the bar. A nice selection of belgian style beers. Nothing transcendant for me but all of the beers were good. Reasonable prices for the quality. Food was good, but were dissappointed that they were out of half of the entrees, all of which sounded great (it was 9:30pm). Would definitely come back for the food, beer and ambiance.

It is flat out beautiful and reminds me of belgian beer hall/church. They have a good beer and bartender even gave me taste of the cask brew. Highly recommended.

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.

Old church building, good selection of Belgian style, we didn’t have any food, service was okay. Not my preference in beer style, but a good place overall.

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.

Maybe the coolest looking bar I have ever been to. It is an old funeral home turned into a brewpub that has a church like feel with stained glass windows everywhere. Servers were knowledgeable and attentive. They only offer about 10 beers, all of them made in-house. I was worried that it would be nothing but Quads and Tripels, but they were more diverse than that. All the beers have a Belgian twist, but many different styles are represented. We didn’t like the food all that much, we felt is was too fancy for it’s own good. Prices were right, especially since you get a 16 oz. pour in a goblet rather than a pint glass. Great idea, great beers. You will have a good time if you go here.

This is a really cool space. It’s 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 I’ve had in a long time. Definitely was par cooked hours prior and dried to crap. Sausage was pretty dry too. It’s 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 Founder’s and Hop Cat.

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, it’s here that were are going to have diner !!! Good selection of their own beers and it’s a great selection, they were all great, we tasted all of the 10 beers on the menu. Can’t 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 it’s been very crowded every time I’ve been there. Food is fantastic, have to try the burger it’s amazing!. Beer selection has gotten better each time I’ve been there, but some of the beers are lacking. Great place, great food, great beer.
