Great food in a micro brewery housed in a gorgeous old church

We had two meals here while in town. My husband had the beef tenderloin the first time. It was perfectly seasoned and cooked to a perfect medium rare. The flavor exploded in your mouth. I had the crab cakes which were also really good, but not in the same league as the beef. We had the risotto... read more

We go here regularly since we live in the area. Great place to take out of town visitors. Never a bad meal here. Kids will love the homemade pizzas. The menu is very eclectic with choices for every taste. Be sure to try the non-traditional pierogies (for you non-locals, think ravioli filled with potato) which are always seasoned and prepared...

Visited the brewery to show family a bit about this historic landmark now a brewery. We had the beer flight and tasted the pierogi pizza. My family was super impressed with the sights of the beer altar! It's a really cool space to visit!

We live in Pittsburgh and were looking to try something we never had before. Locals talk about Church Brew Works and it didn't disappoint. Really cool atmosphere inside (it's an old, beautiful church complete with stained glass windows). The food is equally as good and there are some unique items on the menu as well. If you like to try... More

Was recently in Pittsburgh for business and heard some good things about this place. Went with 4 colleagues from work. Great atmosphere and use of the space. The selection of beer was very good. My favorite was the Thunderbolt. The food was also excellent. We started with a selection of appetizers for the table - special pierogie, bruschetta and lettuce... More

The Church Brew works is a unique eatery in the Bloomfield district of Pittsburgh - a former Church that's been converted to a restaurant and pub of sorts. Specializing of course in beers (which I do not drink), they seem to have a great selection as my fellow beer drinkers attest to, in addition to other spirits like wine. A... More

A converted church that brews great beer, what more could you ask for? Very unique experience and because it is a converted cathedral, the interior is wide open with high ceilings. Long tables and the booths are converted pews, very neat. Don't expect your average pub food, this place is top-notch and very reasonably priced. A lot of the food... More

We loved everything about this place. The inside was unique, the food was awesome and of course the beer was very good also. Great selection of food and beer to choose from. We will go back there again on our next visit to Pittsburgh.

The food and beer were wonderful. The wait staff was accommodating but not really friendly. To buy souvenirs, it takes an act of Congress. Everything is behind the bar and nothing is organized.
