Excellent beer. Excellent food. Excellent atmosphere. Excellent service. The Duck Confit Nachos are extraordinary. My favorite brewery in all of Beer City.

Really enjoyed my visit to the GR brewery

Cool multi room place with a couple pleasant out door dining options

Loved the Belgian inspired beer and super tasty food. Very friendly and professional service.

As a bonus there is a gift shop, stocking all sorts of brewery related items, including a load of cans and bottles of Vivant's high quality brew

Well worth a visit if you are a local or like me, visiting the area...

I don't know what the fuss is about this place or how they got so many awards but I wasn't impressed with a single beer. I love sours and IPA's and had 4 of each yet each drink was a chore to finish.

Vivant has a diverse selection of quality beers including an experimental beer or two on tap. Their food is also phenomenal although expensive ($17 bacon cheeseburger?!?). The service, however, has been sub-par the last couple times I've been here. They also recently added a strict 4 beer limit per customer.
