Innovative belgian-american brews including the usual IPAs, Abbeys and Saisons running the gamut to a poblano sour!

A bit outside downtown, in an old funeral chapel. Work the trek.

Nice staff. Happy to give tastes. Also a couple sampler platters to choose from. Love that the samples are served in snifters so that you get the full nose.

Excellent if pricey food, including a rich duck rillets nachos in brie cream sauce with cracklings. This brewery is one to watch.

Along with Logan's Alley, one of the top two destinations in GR.

Vivant is a newer brewery that focuses on Belgian styles of varying types. The brewery is in an old funeral parlor and the bar is actually located in the old chapel, having a cool backdrop of stained glass behind it!

I really enjoyed the beers here, though some were better than others. The Solitude was a very dry and pleasant Abbey style beer and I ended up buying a few cans to bring home. Their flagship beer is the Big Red Coq--a hoppy Belgian ale. Always fun to say the name of this beer! We snacked on duck confit nachos as we worked through our samplers, reveling in the tastes and the surroundings.
