EAT & DRINK PUB MENU | WHAT'S ON TAP We gather inspiration from the small countryside breweries of Northern France and Southern Belgium. Our daily specials feature ingredients that are fresh and in season. We operate a "scratch kitchen". From soup to nuts, our menu is made in-house and we take pride in the increased quality that this creates. In keeping with the Belgian tradition, beer and food reach another level when thoughtfully paired together. The styles of beer we make have many subtle flavors and nuances that are augmented with many of our food menu offerings. Talk to your server or bartender about what types of things you like and they will find a winning pairing for you. What do we do? Handcraft the highest quality food and beer we can-- in a sustainable way for our community and earth. We also run 4-5 brand new, predominantly locally-sourced specials every week starting on Thursday and running until we are out. This is not only a way for us to stay hyper-local, even sourcing from our own garden, but also a way to allow our world-class chefs new, creative outlets every week. Stay linked in on facebook or instagram to see what specials we are prepping up for this weekend.

We believe that a great business exists because of the support of the local community. Therefore, a business should be an active extension of the community and should strive to find meaningful ways to give back. Here at Brewery Vivant we strive to educate our guests about our food and how food is produced in our community. Teaming up with Kids' Food Basket has helped us reach out to our community in ways that connect what we do at Brewery Vivant with a larger need outside our walls. For every kids' meal purchased at Brewery Vivant, Kids' Food Basket can provide 5 meals to a local elementary school. Our staff are able to volunteer by assembling and delivering the Sack Suppers and our business is able to sponsor more than 14,000 Sack Suppers for a local elementary school this year. One in five children is affected by hunger in West Michigan. Kids' Food Basket is a force for attacking childhood hunger, ensuring that lunch is not the last meal of the day for nearly 7,000 kids at thirty eight schools in Grand Rapids, Muskegon and Holland. Sack Suppers are well-rounded evening meals that provide nutrition critical to the development of the brain and body. ON TAP NOW Offerings subject to change Farm Hand | Farmhouse Ale | 5.5% ABV Light body, mildly sweet, slight cloudiness and rustic farmhouse tartness. Nuances in this beer make it great for an entry into the Belgian/French scene, but also a go-to for the most discerning palate. Michigan's #1 Farmhouse Beer. Triomphe | Belgian Style IPA | 6.5% ABV A classic Belgian yeast strain offers sweet, complex aromatics layered into a sturdy backbone of American-grown hops. Strong bitterness and notes of citrus round out this balanced pale ale. Big Red Coq | Red IPA | 6%ABV Deep red with rich Caramel malts paired with copious amounts of bold and tropical Citra hops. Undertaker | Belgian Style Dark Ale | 6.7% ABV Notes of roasted malt and Belgian yeast. A menagerie on the palate: dark chocolate, coffee-like notes from roasted malts, and a mild character of dark cherries. The lingering finish hints of molasses and roastiness. Tropical Saison | Pineapple & Mango Saison | 5.5%ABV A light bodied sip of Summer, with the added benefit of the late addition pineapple and mango. This beer boasts sessionability with a light hop complexity. All Summer Long. Million Pound Grisette | Grisette | 4.75% ABV Brewed in honor of our friends at Pilot Malt House to commemorate the 1 millionth pound of grain sold by the Byron Center maltster. The grain bill is 100% PMH: pilsen, wheat, & spelt. The saison boasts a citrus, lemon pithy tartness on the nose and a slight spiciness and breadiness to the sip. The “grisette” style harkens back to old-world Belgium and is brewed in the farmhouse tradition. Keymaster of Gose | Gose | 5% ABV A light bodied, slightly tart ale with a pinch of salt makes this dog-days of summer beer irresistible. Grand Army | An IPA for Supporters! | 5% ABV Brewed for the hooligans in the Grand Army, the supporters club for Grand Rapids' very own GRFC, this IPA features huell melon hops for a grapefruit-pithy finish. Civilistic | Belgian style Stout | 5% ABV A light bodied stout, perfect for those that enjoy a triste with the dark side despite Michigan summer heatwaves. Roasty cocoa notes, black cherries, and toffee on the nose. Chocolate, dark roast coffee, and a slight cinnamon smokiness come through on the sip. Yarrow's Den | Saison | 5.5% ABV Brewed in collaboration with award winning home-brewer, Jake Szetela from Brewsquitos, as well as the Land Conservancy of West Michigan, this saison features locally foraged yarrow and bee balm. Expect balanced herbal, subtle mint, and fragrant lemon notes. Zaison | Imperial Saison | 9.3%ABV Probably one of the bigger "summer" beers you'll encounter, Zaison's deep orange hue and high ABV make it a perfect pairing with the summer sunshine. Our special Belgian yeast strain gives this beer a little funkiness and is accented with black peppercorns and orange peel. Angelina | Barrel-Aged Sour Ale | 10.2%ABV Our original sour beer, this malty deep mahogany ale has been aging in oak barrels for nearly a year. Angelina was the first barrel we filled back in 2011 and we have since inoculated other barrels with the same funk characteristics over the years. Expect some dark ripened stone fruit flavor, tart cherries, some bretta funk and a rounded lacto sour on this. *GABF award winner 2016 Escoffier | Mixed Culture Farmhouse Ale | 10%ABV First brewed in collaboration with New Belgium Brewing in 2012, Escoffier is an internationally recognized delight (Draft Magazine named it to it's annual top 25 beers in the world list). It is brewed with a fair amount of spelt in the malt bill, so there's an earthy spiciness present. Fermented in horizontal re-purposed dairy tanks, both bretta funk (think wet hay, horse blanket) and a sour pang come through on this masterpiece beer. House Sour | Foeder-Aged Sour Ale | 4.5%ABV This great session sour is approachable, but still complex and interesting enough for sour addicts. Rotating Wood-Aged Beers Aging beer in a wooden vessel is an art form-- to draw out the flavors of liquids past (bourbon, red wine, etc) and manage the funky flavors wild yeast may present. We always try to dedicate a few draft lines to our wood-aged offerings. They tend to change frequently so drink it while you can! Don't forget to check the board when you arrive-- specialty firkins ("real ale") on rotation. In addition to our Belgian & French inspired beers, we do offer a selection of Michigan ciders, Michigan wines and bubbly, as well as a draft Wisconsin Root Beer and local Hop Soda. Also: tap water.
