Brewery Vivant is the only brewery in Michigan that creates Wallonian (southern Belgium/northern France) influenced ales. Wallonian influenced, but 100% American made. The beautiful taproom is housed in an old chapel, the brewery is housed in a livery stable that was built in 1915. Brewery Vivant is unique in every aspect!
Harmony Brewing Co. is a funky & eccentric brewery that is located in the heart of Eastown. This locally owned brewery has award winning pizzas! Bring or buy a growler, you can only buy their awesome beers on location. They have various lagers, IPA's, porters/stouts and sometimes sours.
If you haven't heard of Elk Brewing yet, you will soon. They opened at this location in 2014 and quickly grew and opened a larger location in Comstock Park where they started bottling beers such as Dankalicious (IPA) and Blonde Express (Blonde Coffee ale) which they now distribute around the state.
