Cheers to the Church Brew Works

This is a church that has been transformed into an amazing brew house and restaurant. It is a little way from downtown but worth the short distance to travel. Beer was very good along with our food. The ambiance is great. Staff had a good understanding of there product. There is a patio, it was the... read more

This people know how to brew beer and bake pizza. No cheap imitations, real Steel City business. Onsite brewery (with all the components functioning across the glass wall), brick oven for pizza (in the corner, also interesting to watch). Fast and friendly service. Always a good combination of 'traditional' beers (Pious Monk is my favorite dark, and Bell Tower for... More

We visited the Church Brew Works for the first time in 10+ years about a month ago. Everything was quite tasty and pleasant. They had even brought back our favorite pizza! :). After such a good experience, we decided to go back again. Bad move, we should have left well enough alone. Our favorite pizza was no longer on the... More

Once you get past the fact that this restaurant was a popular Catholic church whose congregation has moved away (my mother in law can't), you will find a wonderful restaurant on the edge of Lawrenceville, Pittsburgh's latest, trendiest hot spot. An eclectic menu tempts the taste buds with buffalo, perogies, pizza and the best home brewed beers that you will... More

This place was recommended to us by a Pittsburgh native who is also a foodie, so we already knew it would be good. The mussels app was great, as were the bison meatloaf and the shrimp 'n' grits (spicy!). I also loved loved loved the Berliner Weisse. This beer was crisp and tart, perfect for the 90 degree weather outside.... More

This place is gorgeous! Be prepared to wait, but, the wait is definitely worth it! Beer choices are excellent and very tasty. I think we had the IPA and Monk Donkel (Amber) and they were excellent! Pierogies seem to be a must, so, we tried an untraditional pierogie appetizer and split the Cinqo Fromaggio pizza. Both were exquisite! Can't wait... More

The atmosphere is great. Obviously it is a brewpub in an old church. They make their own beers which are very good. I recommend the Thunderhop IPA which is not too hoppy. The food her is also very good. The pierogies,the pork tostada and the cheesesteak are all very good. Check their website for their current menu. There is free... More
