wants to give you wood. That's right, the venerable Belgian zen masters of Grand Rapids, operating from their monastic cloisters in East Town, are holding their 2nd annual Wood-Aged Beer Festival on Saturday, October 6th. The event will feature several rare, limited-release bourbon barrel aged and sour beers as well as food specials and duck brats (yeah I said it) all day.
If you have never been to Vivant, this would be a great way to get your feet wet. They really have a very cool, unique, and holistic model to their business and it comes through in everything they do. Their beers are all styled after traditional, agrarian, small-batch recipes from northern France and Southern Belgium. Their brewpub, set in the chapel of an old funeral home in Grand Rapids, almost transports you to where the beer is styled from. It is microbrewery experience not like many others.
So, we hope to see you over in Grand Rapids in a couple weeks from 1-9PM for Brewery Vivan't s 2nd Annual Wood-Aged Beer Festival! Maybe even check out Art Prize while you're there. Oh, and did we mention the duck brats...?
