My friend and I visited Saturday morning of GABF for a special "Breakfast with the Bruery" prior to the noon GABF session.
Located in a neighborhood that appears to be undergoing revitalization. An easy cab ride or nice walk from downtown.
Because they typically don't serve breakfast and this was a special event, my experience may differ from yours. The overall experience was very pleasant.
We went with a Bruery paddle which consisted of ~4 oz pours of Autumn Maple, Saison Rue, Hotenroth, and Mischief. I think they were $12 each.
The food was high quality and generous portions for the price.
We finished by splitting a glass of the Bruery Bourbon Barrell Cuir (14%) for $14. I was hoping they would have more rare Bruery stuff available and maybe even the chance to meet Partick Rue. No dice on either.
When I asked my server what order to consume the flight, she had no idea but the service steadily improved during the course of the meal. Some basic beer training could improve the service.
The decor had lots of rich wood furniture and an impressive bar but was otherwise bland with your standard Belgian beer signs.

Ok so I finally checked this place out and left very unimpressed. To start off they had Pliny the Elder listed at $8 which I thought was a little expensive until they brought it in a 25cl glass, super expensive seeing as how Falling Rock has pints for $7. If they are selling short pours it should be noted on the menu. We were also seated in a side room that has terrible ambience. The service was good but the good was mediocre. I ordered mussels ($13) and not only were there not very many but they were way to salty. There is a French restaurant her (le central) that not only has much better mussels but they are only $10 and you get a huge bucket. Between the overpriced beer and mediocre food I won't be back and is advise others to avoid unless you really need Belgian beer. They did have Cantillon gueuze on the menu for $22 per 375ml.

A place of elegance within one of the harsher areas of town. Beer line up was impressive and tap list superb. I did think though in some instances they were overpriced but that might go with the territory as places downtown seem to run a little more quite often. Server was very knowledgeable about beer. This is definitely worth a stop if you're into Belgians and want a wide range of good craft from one source. I myself though will probably go to other alternatives in town with some many other less expensive choices.
