This is a neighborhood brewery built in an old church, giving it a lot of charm. The atmosphere is fun and the beer is very good. Service was really good too. Please go!

The atmosphere here at Brewery Vivant is one of a kind. It feels like you are doing something naughty like drinking beer in church, oh wait....you are. It is so beautiful and charming. The community tables are nice for big parties or making new friends....More

Came here for a few beers and also got a burger. The beer was good and the food was fantastic. Unfortunately, the service wasn't the greatest, although the servers were very knowledgeable about the beers. The food was pretty pricey but well worth it.

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.
Do you have a full bar or just beer?
