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. The 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.

Was really impressed with this place ... they had 5 barrel aged selections when I was there and all were solid. Their regular line is also pretty spectacular. Food is freaking AWESOME - you must drink AND eat here!!! Gotta appreciate Belgian styles as this is what they are focusing on ... definitely an up and coming brewery - do not miss this place ... ambiance, beers, food, works, etc was super cool.
