The brewery is a great place, the bar is fun to sit at, just some of my friends that were raised catholic think that it is weird sitting at the bar which is the front of the old chapel. The community tables are fun, even though I always seem to meet weird but great people. The service is good even when they are busy, the food is really good but it is a little pricey in comparison to places near by but it is worth it. Their beers are priced very well and are more then worth it. the newest must stop in Grand Rapids. (519 characters)

Did the brewery tour for $10. Knowledgable tour leader, small group on the 4th of July. The 20 barrel facility isn't very big, so it was mostly talking in one place. I was impressed how small a canning line is compared to a normal bottling line. Vivant is owned by one of the founders of New Holland, so not surprising to see the place is laid out well and full of new equipment. Got 3 5 oz pours on the tour (and the glass) and a 4th of your choice after the tour (464 characters)

The burger and bone marrow are awesome. The beer is also awesome. Definitely come here, or maybe don't, so I can have it all to myself. (137 characters)

Great place! Always wonderful beer and food. Last night I had the steal and truffle fries. Had a BA Zaison and a Treebucket. Desert. Followed up with a spicy chocolate ice cream. Close to a perfect meal for me. (210 characters)
