A letter of recommendation from Brewery Vivant
What a blessing it is to have such great colleagues in such a cutthroat business. Culinary Cultivations and Shawn himself have been great help to myself and my company. When I reach out for help I know I'll have a trusted company that has my back.
Celebrated as the first LEED certified commercial micro brewery in the world, Brewery Vivant is housed in a refurbished historic funeral home. The pub harkens back to an old world monastery where monks brewed Belgian beer. Come live the Bon Vivant with us-- enjoying Belgian and French inspired beers alongside European inspired fare from our scratch-kitchen.
We are excited to share our passion for beer, food and sustainability with you. Much of the inspiration behind Vivant comes from the small breweries that dot the countryside in Southern Belgium and Northern France. Many of those breweries are true beer artisans who are also an integral part of their community. They experiment with unique yeasts and ingredients, always with an artistic eye to their creations. They source a lot of items locally which makes their beer pair exceptionally well with the food they harvest locally. These family businesses often wear many hats besides brewer, including educator, visitor guide, and even town mayor. Though we don’t aspire to be the mayor of Grand Rapids, it is important to us to be more than just a manufacturer of great beer (although that is our first passion). We see ourselves synonomous with the flavor of what makes our city great. Explore our website and start planning your trip to 925 Cherry Street. We'd love to see you down at the pub. Cheers!
