Great physical venue, good beer, food tasty

Sat at bar. Good in-house IPA (thunderhop). Salad and pierogies were both fine. The physical building inside is what makes the place, a repurposed Roman church. Craft beers made in-house. Would visit again.

I took a large group of 9 to this restaurant for a business meal. It is certainly a place that you want to experience at least once. The food was average with some items exceeding expectations while others fell short. The bruschetta was superb. However the hummus was bland and lacked flavor. What is exceptional is the venue itself.

What a unique place to eat!!! The food was delicious and the brew selections were diverse and well thought out. The restaurant itself was beautiful as the owners have kept the majority of the church's stained glass, wooden pews and lofts in tact and usable. It was definitely worth the 2 hour trip to experience the food and atmosphere of... More

Very good food and beer. Atmosphere is unique for a brewery, since it is a converted church. Service good too.

We just had dinner and drinks on Sunday evening June 28th. I had been meaning to try this place the last two times we came to Pittsburgh but did not find the time. Boy was that a mistake!! The Church Brew Works is now on the list to visit every time we come to the Burgh!! Short and simple. Try... More

This is a GREAT idea. If you like beer, go here and get the flight, it's great. The food is average bar food, but not bad by any means.

Never disappointed! I love the food and drinks, especially the appetizers, pizza, and sweet potato fries! I usually do the beer tasting in order to get a taste of each. Great beer!

This may have been the fifth or sixth time I have visited the Church Brew Works. As another reviewer termed it, it was "an interesting brewery experience." We had a good time this noon as stopped by for lunch. Enjoyed a couple of beers, though their beer rates rather low on the ABV scale than most other breweries we have... More

Really cool atmosphere and the food was very good. Beer selection was outstanding. Not too pricey if you sit in bar area.

We were there a couple of years ago. My husband worked in a brewery and loves his beer and so does his best friend. The atmosphere is so relaxing and the staff very friendly. You can get a sampler of beers and order from the menu. It's in a old roman catholic church, in the front is the vats for... More
