Stopped by this place during a trip to GR today. Needless to say it was worth the wait!

When walking in, you're presented with what the outside portrayed: a old chapel that reminded myself of pictures I had seen of Belgium brewpubs and areas. Though there wasn't a lot of people here during my visit (mid afternoon), just by sitting their you felt invited and cozy. Looking around you noticed wooden benches and tables..with a large bench ala hofbrauhaus style when you walked in. There were quite a few stain glass windows and a great display of the glasses behind the bar.

I ended having the Belgium IPA and the French Fusion, both of which were excellent beers and very fitting for their style. Each beer came with the proper glassware and was very enjoyable.

The service was excellent too, though it may have been in relation to the lack of people there...still though the bartender was very friendly and quite knowledgeable of their beer.

The selection of beer was pretty good, there was roughly 8 regular beers on tap with a few ciders and misc other drinks. Pretty much most Belgium styles were covered here.

Prices for beers ranged from $4-$5 accordingly, prices were food was a little more expensive starting out at $9 dollars for salads. But I felt the value of the type of beer in relation to price was perfect.

Overall I enjoyed my visit to this brewery and will def go back again. It was very unique for the area and played perfectly to what the brewery was trying to portray.
