Church brew works has a cool atmosphere with friendly service. Both the pale ale and IPA are good brews. The cheese steak sandwich is great and the pierogi puzza is surprisingly tasty! We added gravy for the fried and both were great. The pierogi appetizer was small and bland. Will return!

We live in Virginia but whenever in the Pittsburgh area this is a must stop. Venue is spectacular, food is always good and we haven't even touched he surface of their offerings and no matter your leaning toward beer type, one can always find something to satisfy your beer palate. The beer is also incredibly inexpensive. I purchased a growler... More

Teams run away. Trying to arrange billing to accommodate a hockey team was a nightmare. The manager was inflexible and the manager would only allow one bill per table. As most hockey teams know ordering by jersey number is the way to go. This is the first restaurant that has been closed to the practice. Waitress was a gem though.

Imagine your surprise when you enter a former church and see copper brewing vats on the altar.... The church brew works is a "must experience" when visiting Pittsburgh. The micro brew beers are varied, interesting and very reasonable. The appetizers were yummy and the service was attentive and friendly. Don't miss it. Peace be with you😇.

They did a great job of converting this church into a brew pub. The alter brewery is divine, the pews lining the center aisle amusing. The food is better than average pub food, the beers are also good but not great. It is still something to see when in town.

I probably should have written this long ago, but the Church Brew Works has become one of my favorite places for lunch and an occasional light snack. It's easy to get to, parking is free, and the venue is pretty darn unique. Most often, in the evening I'd go with the pulled pork sandwich and sweet potato French fries. At... More

The Brew Works is a favorite spot for getting together with friends for great food and specialty beers. Service is always excellent and accommodating to our group of 12-15. They offer a variety of food and plenty of it at good prices.

Comparing this brewery to the Hoffbrauhaus on the South Side of Pittsburgh, I rate this very low. It is gloomy and very noisy. Being that it is in a church building that has been converted to a restaurant/brewery, the hollowness of the building exacerbates the sounds coming from the brewing process.
