I went on a "brew tour" with a few friends and we had marked Vivant as a must visit. Unfortunately, after arriving we were all very dissapointed. We found the brewery to be a bit pretentious and really over-crowded. Being a stout and porter fan, I was very disappointed by the selection but I fully understand that they have carved out their niche and it doesn't include anything on the darker side. It's still a bit disappointing that they wouldn't have at least one to appease everyone, but I digress. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was decent. A brewery based in an old church is always going to be a bit ironic and fun, but ultimately this brewery is not for me.

I can't attest for the food since I did not have nay but the beer list contains a very nice, varied selection and the bartenders know how to pour a beer. The brewery is located in an old church which creates a very different feel while inside as compared to many other breweries.
