When at this brewery you will find that the staple beers are pretty decent. For us the variants and season releases can be hit or miss. The food items we have had from there have always been pretty good. Not our favorite brewery in Grand...More

We had a flight of beer while on our Ale Trail Package here. Very tasty beers. Some of the beers were of a sour nature. Interesting. Very nice interior.

Brewery Vivant is one of the most fun breweries in a city full of breweries. Burgers and duck nachos! Other items are good, too, I'm told, but since I don't get there very often, I stick w/ favorites.

My friend and I visited on a Monday night, the place was packed! We had a few beer samples and each found one we liked to order a pint with our dinner. The service was great.

There are so many exceptional breweries in Grand Rapids, but in my opinion, Vivant takes the crown. BV is the whole package. Here's why: 1. Consistently fantastic Belgian style brews and excellent variety. My personal favorites are Farm Hand, Triomphe and Undertaker. 2. Mouth watering...More

Hello. They definately have a couple of smaller rooms to the right of the main front entrance. As the previous writer mentioned, this is a high demand establishment so call them.

Yes they do have both, heck out their web site which has the beer list and menu. You will not find main dish items that are gluten free but some appetizers and cider.
