A truly great place for beer and food. The beer is very good and they have a wide selection of them. The food is what really stands out here. They do not have a cook, but a chef. Hands down the best food of any brewery I have been to. The truffled walnuts are a must and I would drive hours just for this. The staff is far above average and are great at every aspect of this place. The inside is very inviting with large communal tables as well as booths and bar seating. I would frequent this place every week if it was closer.

Ultra-cool idea, vibe, space. Quality of beer is nice, not elite, but they make decent craft beers, many seem very true to their styles.

The service was average. Its hard to rate a place on this when you only get the service of one employee. Their beer selection was good. Their food selection was not. The only thing worse than the food menu/selection was the food itself. Over-priced liver pate on a cracker.

Didn't have any food here but stopped for some beers during recent trip to GR area. Layout confusing and hard to get to the bar area to order beers, but place was packed and seemed to have good atmosphere. I really enjoyed was the Wizards Burial Ground which was excellent.

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.
