I like the beers they make. Tasted 5 of 'em when they did the Tap Takeover @ Meat Southern BBQ. Glad they came thru. It was great to taste their hard work!

Much different brewery than the norm. In an old church.Duck Nachos are a must. Get the Wizard Burial Ground if they have it on tap.

A nice little old monastery (?). Parked the bikes outside and went on in. The place isnt overly large. I dont think they had serve food there, and their tap list isnt the biggest either. We still enjoyed it. Took the tour.

Did the brewery tour for $10. Knowledgable tour leader, small group on the 4th of July. The 20 barrel facility isn't very big, so it was mostly talking in one place. I was impressed how small a canning line is compared to a normal bottling line. Vivant is owned by one of the founders of New Holland, so not surprising to see the place is laid out well and full of new equipment. Got 3 5 oz pours on the tour (and the glass) and a 4th of your choice after the tour
