Great selection of beers and great food to boot. Ate outside and really enjoyed the atmosphere. One of the better stops

First visit and celebrating a birthday. Beer was a hit, thankfully we had a 40 minute wait to decide what beer to try. Waitress offered no help knowing this was our first visit. Staff didn't seem to care. After asking our waitress to find out what on the menu is garlic freedueto a sensitivity she returned with: " I think... More

We went to BV to celebrate a birthday. We love BV beers, and of course they were delicious. The inside of the brewery is very cool with the stained glass windows and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. But.... almost everything on the menu contains pork/bacon! I don't eat any pork products and found I had a hard time picking... More

Went on a Saturday night. Close to 10 pm. Got right in and got seated. Being so busy I thought the server wait would be awhile. He was prompt and friendly. We had a dark port ale. And pub pretzel and cheese. The pretzel was huge and hot. I would go here again. Love the unique setting.

Brewery Vivant is a busy spot full of fun loving people. I was there with a group and we spent the better part of the evening trying different beers (and an amazing blueberry cider for me), cheese, charcuterie, and burgers. The service was knowledgeable and attentive without being stifling and really added to our experience. I personally was rather full... More

Everyone is very friendly and helpful. It's a classy and beautiful place. The duck confit nachos are decadent and my favorite. They also have delicious bone marrow and truffle frites. Beautiful patio for warm nights. Oh, and the beer is great. Big red coq is my favorite.

This brewery is in an old church with stain glass windows and vaulted ceilings. Perfect place to enjoy the local brews and atmosphere. It will be one of your favorites!

Food was wonderful. The staff was very pleasant. I had several great salads. They have many vegaterian meals and gluten free. The beer itself is enough of a reason to come in. The area it is in has many other brewer's and small stores.

Eclectic food menu. Very disappointing! I'm a big scotch egg connoisseur. Try them everywhere I go. This was by far the worst one I've ever had, and twice as expensive as any one that I've ever had. Go for the beer, eat somewhere else.

The Brewery Vivant is in a very trendy up-and-coming neighborhood and is located in a renovated old church. It's venue is all about microbrews and very trendy, unique, food choices. Make sure to bring your wallet! We selected several appetizers including a cheese plate and salads. The food choices are very eclectic but they were delicious. We did try several... More
