We expected great beer and weren't disappointed! All staff were very knowledgeable about the selection. Menu was so interesting with choices like bison and boar. Pretzels were amazing and so were the fries!

Loved the atmosphere, very European. Food was fantastic, beer was fantastic, service was fantastic. Tipped out the kitchen so they could enjoy one and they cheered for us.

This is one of, if not my favorite brewery in Grand Rapids (and we have a lot!). Their beers are always good, I love that they carry a few sours all the time. Plus the duck nachos are to die for.

Everything about this brewery is unique including many of the beers that they produce! Great food and wonderful beer. Friendly, busy brewery that is a local favorite in a city with many, many breweries. First choice of everyone we asked for a recommendation. Highly recommended!

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.
