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!

The base of this epic beer is our bourbon barrel aged stout "Love Shadow".  Then we added hundreds of pounds of coconut that we toasted in our very own kitchen.  It's a wow beer in every way with big flavors of chocolate, vanilla, oak, and of course coconut.   Art by Hannah Kennedy

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!
