EAT & DRINK

White rooster logo

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.

For the Kids

YES! We do offer a kid's menu with scratch-made mac-n-cheese, chicken fingers, and hamburgers... and the newest favorite the Big Kids Board (think charcuterie plate). Families welcome here!

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.

Offerings subject to change

Our beers are brewed in small batches by actual humans. Being small allows us to be agile, responsive, and keep things fresh. While we strive to keep the following list updated, please know we'll likely have some surprises on tap for you when you visit. From barrel aged beers, to hyper experimental beers, to recipe development stages, be sure to talk to your server for things not listed on menus. We're not hiding them, it's just tough to keep prints up-to-date with all the cool exciting things happening at the Chapel. Cheers!

Farm Hand Logo

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 category, but also a go-to for the most discerning palate. Michigan's #1 Farmhouse Beer.

Hop Field | Farmhouse IPA | 7% ABV

A rustic, unfiltered cloudiness and farmhouse yeast allows the bright, fruit-forward hops to shine. Well balanced and refreshing, this farmhouse IPA boasts complexity and comfort all in one. Features a blend of native Michigan-grown hops!

Big Red Coq Logo

Big Red Coq | Hoppy Farmhouse Red Ale| 6%ABV

Deep red with rich caramel malts paired with copious amounts of bold and tropical Citra hops. Malty sweetness balances the hoppy bitterness.

Wizardposter19FO (1)

Wizard Burial Ground | Bourbon Barrel Aged Quad Ale | 10% ABV

The alcohol content of the quad pulls the bourbon, vanilla, and charred oak character out of the barrel and melds it all together with the caramel richness already present

A collaboration with the Cultivate Tap House in Ypsilanti.  A traditional beer made with Styrian Cardinal and Vic Secret hops.

Experimental & Other offerings

Don't forget to check the board when you arrive-- experimental beers are on rotation. Ask your server for the latest pilot-batch brew. In addition to our farmhouse 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.

Barrel Logo

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!

 
zwickelcrest

Broad Leaf Zwickel | Unfiltered Lager | 4.1% ABV

We don't filter out any of the straight from the tank goodness of this fantastic lager.
