What a fun place in an ecclesiastical atmosphere..."seriously?", the Church Brew Works is a remodeled St. John the Baptist Church and School. The brew pub has a number of delicious sounding brews...we opted for some specialty 'hot' drinks! YUM! The appetizer of pierogi with a non traditional inside of squash and kale were most enjoyable and then unto our pizza... More

Nice place to have a good vegetarian meal while celebrating son's 21st birthday. Good beers to select from and server was super. A bit cramped at the table, but we it work.

We had not dined here for some time and were very pleased. It was a busy Friday but they have ample seating and we were able to be seated right away. (We had checked the"no wait" app prior to arriving! ) The waitstaff was good and the kitchen was prompt. We were a larger party and tried several items. We... More

Okay, this place is so cool I can't tell you, gotta go!! Stained glass windows, some of the internal structure still in place, uses the old pews and some other of the old church stuff. The Altar of Beer is just crazy with the stainless steel vats and such. Huge curvy bar more stainless and copper vats, modern but blended... More

Went to the brew works after a school graduation to celebrate. As always, cool atmosphere due to great architecture and converted church, duh. Of four dishes ordered and one appetizer, none were good. The brewed on site beers were only so-so. Our server was pleasant and knowledgeable, but paying those prices for subpar food was disappointing. Wouldn't go back.

First off, this place is beautiful! I'm a big fan of old churches so I was very excited to go here! We started off with rattlesnake pirogies. Amazing! Our sandwiches took a bit to come out, so the very nice waiter gave us chips and BBQ sauce on the house. Since I had ordered chips with my meal, he gave... More

We were staying downtown, but this was more than worth the trip over here. We had a delightful meal. The beer flight was a great way to taste all of their beers. We'd definitely go back.

We stopped in for luch one day and sat at the counter/bar, our first time here. The food was good, I had a wrap. The beer selection is very limited, there were approx 4 choices, all brewed right there on site. The waitress brought over a sampling platter with different kinds of beers to taste and explained each type. My... More
