The brewery is in East Town (well, now East Hills), a continually funky little area of GR that has always been fun, even 30 years after I was a kid and started going to art classes and the Bijou Theater and Yesterdog.

The tap room is in an old chapel, with high ceilings, and lots of tables and benches, and stained glass windows. The atmosphere is about as Belgian as you can get in the Midwest. The beers were great, and the food was awesome. I was in there right at opening time (3 pm), so it wasn't terribly busy, but within 30 minutes there were more than 40 people in the taproom eating and drinking. The service was ready for this rapid influx, and easily handled it; the service was fast and friendly. They were very knowledgable were genuinely excited about their brand- beer and food. One note, I live in the Washington, DC, area, and I gave this $$$ because it was pricey...even by my standards of an extremely pricey city. Well worth every penny, though.
