Title says it all. The people at the table next to ours, clearly regulars, said to order the pizza - best thing on the menu. We didn't listen. Should have listened. I will say, though, that the perogies were definitely worth ordering.

I'm torn with this place. The atmosphere is really amazing. The old church, the stained glass, and the beer brewing is really cool however the food is not worth it. It was flavorless and over priced. I would probably never go back for the food obviously but the beer is good and is sold throughout the city. Also, the service... More

This was at one time a place to go for a good meal and beer, but I was less than satisfied this time around. It seems the better option now is to head there after work for a few beers and some bar food. My meatloaf was not very tasty, although the onion soup still was great. My daughters meal... More

So, I've never been here on a night when it wasn't absolutely packed to the gills. There is always a huge crowd, no matter which day of the week you go. The beer is just okay. Nothing to write home about. The pizza, however, is very very good. I love wood-fired pizza, and this place definitely does it right. We... More

A unique brewpub in Pittsburgh...check it out for the atmosphere and local beer. We went on a Saturday night at 8pm and it was full. There was a 40 minute wait for dinner inside or outside, but the bar area is open seating and we were able to find seats at the bar. I thought the food was okay and... More

A brew pub in an old Catholic church is certainly a novelty. Worth checking it out that's for sure. I thought the menu was a little odd but the service, food and beer were very good.

The food was great and reasonably priced. It was interesting to see see the old church artifacts and the brewing system.

Visited to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. On March 21, 2003 the staff at Church Brew Works helped us pull together a last minute impromptu wedding reception 72 hrs before my husband left for Iraq. This place will always be special for us and our anniversary experience was amazing! Great food, great beer, great atmosphere!

Walking into what was once the sanctuary of the Church, is overwhelming. Sitting on the altar are beautiful shiny copper kettles that brew and/or hold the beer. Original church pews have been cut down and made into seating for booths. Original columns remain and add to the atmosphere. There are always four "regular" beers; i.e., Celestial Gold, Pious Monk Dunkel,... More
