The atmosphere was awesome, however the service and beer was lacking. The waitress couldn't have been less interested in making it a memorable visit and they weren't busy. The beer tasted watered down and all but two tasted the same. I was impressed with the low prices, but you definitely only get what you pay for. I'm happy to say... More

We're burger lovers! On our way to Niagara Falls from Alexandria Virginia (Washington DC), our friends told us to make a stop over at this place. Driving there was kinda uneasy coz you will be passing the untouristy place of America. When we got ther,e from the outside, the church didn't look "churchy". When we got in took some pictures...

Although I feel bad for the old church, I love the beer and wood fired pizzas. My favorite beer is the Pius Monk Dunkel (Dark, flavorfull beer). There's much more than pizza, but that's all I've had here. I've wanted to try their other offerings, but always end up with the Pizza.

We visited this brewpub before a Pirates ballgame. This was our second visit to Pittsburgh, and we were disappointed that we didn't get a chance to try this restaurant during our first visit. We had to wait a short time for a table, but they have the text-when-your-table-is-ready service, so that was not a problem. We sat at the bar... More

We usually visit brew pubs on vacation and this has to be the coolest setting. They did a great job with the building, and the beer and food were good too.... so if you like brew pubs, this is a must. We had the sampler tray, and the samples were a bit larger than most places we've been. The menu... More

This is a cool place once you get past the feeling of it being sacrilegious. We ordered a beer tasting that included 8 different varieties. It was a great way to get a sense of each beer and decide what we wanted a glass of. They have two menus-- the dinner menu and the pub menu (and a children's menu,... More

This restaurant/brewery is housed in an old church, complete with stained glass windows. The seats are the old pews. Big copper kettles are in the front where the altar used to stand. The food and beer were very good, but I didn't like the "hoppy" smell when I first walked in. After awhile though, you get used to the smell,... More

This was a very cool spot to visit. A brewery in an old church? What else can you say? It was very neat! The food was good and so was the variety of beer. Our server was "blah" - wish I had someone else who had better personality considering this was my first time there. Otherwise, a must see place!

Awesome little spot in Pittsburgh to check out. Good beers to chose from and a decent menu selection. Service varies depending on crowds and this place can get very busy on weekends and some weeknights. Parking can be an issue on weekends so beware. Worth a visit and check out the pierogi pizza!

The last few times that I have visited I ordered the pizza that they make there in a brick oven. It's very good. The place is known for brewing its own beer but I usually do not order a beer but that's by choice not because the beer is bad. Over multiple visits over the years, I have liked everything... More
