What a nice experience. Excellent beers coupled with great food. Lots of fun choices for food. We did the cheese board and it was great.

I come here at least once a month. The dining area is meant to bring to mind a Belgian roadhouse, but it is really the chapel of an old funeral home! The food is really outstanding with menu items you won't see anywhere else (marrow!). This is also my favorite brewery in a town with some really great ones. They... More

Our waitress was super friendly and helped us navigate the menu. We ate outside and really enjoyed our food, drinks including homemade soda and beer. The meals were delish and interesting.

Really great food, outstanding beers and a cool vibe in this old church. Duck nachos, amazing frites, and a great burger. Can't go wrong with a stop here.

The Belgian style beer is always pretty tasty, but you do need to like that style as it is mainly what they brew. The food is always good here! Try the Duck Nachos!

A big family group trying to squeeze a few more minutes of fun out of a wedding weekend. Strange to be drinking in a "church"! Last call at 11:30? I guess that is a Michigan thing but it really put the party to bed.Again they had a great variety of music playing!

Very interesting interior. Bartender was super friendly and personable. Area around brewery has some nice shops and other options. Only downside--the 4 packs in the lobby are really pricey. Signs with price are hard to find. 2 different 4 packs were $28+. My fault for not asking.

My friends, my daughter and I had lunch here before we started the Michigamder bike tour last weekend. Wonderful atmosphere - apparently it's a former funeral home so lots of great stained windows! Delicious beer and great food! Our server was knowledgable and professional. I highly recommend a stop at Brewery Vivant!

Thank MOL L
