It's off the beaten path but worth a visit. Although there is a bus stop right outside, it's a moot point since buses don't run frequently here. The space is beautiful and unique. The beer sampler is an awesome deal with 8 5oz pours for $13. If you sign up for the mailing list, you get a free pint glass.

Okay, a brew-pub in an old church. Well preserved building, interesting, and mildly weird. Not much ambience, though, as it's crowded and loud. The food is very average, okay, but that's about all, glorified bar food. Many of the reviewers are saying how much fun it is. Fun ? What fun ? Restaurants should be about really good food and...

A must go if in Pittsburgh. A decommissioned Catholic Church, made into a micrbrewery and restaurant. So different and so much fun. Make a reservation, wait times can be long. Food is good, great variety. They have a beer sampler that my son loves. Allows you to find that perfect beer.

To use the Facebook term like , this place was just a like for us. A little let down but maybe it was just my dinner choice. Very neat place and glad I made the trip from Ohio to go once but I'll return to my other favorites next time.

Great Brewery & Restaurant! Food was delicious and unique. Sangria, beer & cocktails were great. Very crowded on a Saturday night but we found 3 seats at the bar and ate there instead of the hour & 15 min wait. Bought gift cards to pay for dinner with and got free sovenier pint glasses to take home they have a... More

Family of four for dinner on a Saturday night. We were seated immediately because we didn't have reservations and there is a portion of the facility set aside for just that. Beers were great and vast in type. Food was only so-so. Cheese steaks were dry and the meat was overcooked for my liking. Pizza was greasy but my son... More

The location is a converted church. It gives this location an expansive feel to it. The food was good. The menu has many choices. The beer offerings are plentiful. All of this adds up to a good place to hang out with friends.

We recently had lunch at the Church Brew Works. The restaurant is in an old church and it is fascinating to see the original pews, stained glass, etc. Our waiter was excellent. He was very knowledgable about the menu and recommended a pierogi appetizer, which had kale with mashed potatoes-delicious! Members of our party had bison burger, roasted beet salad,... More

This is a one of a kind. I love stopping in when I'm in Pittsburgh on business. It's a great place to hang out and have a few beers. They have a good menu and I've always been happy with the food. They also have good beers but I find them a little hit and miss. Some selections are excellent... More

Visited on my first trip to Piitsburgh with two regulars, a great venue, and extremely clever and sensitive re use of a church with a really good atmosphere. Was almost full on the Wednesday we went but service was still good, food was a good menu and buffalo meatloaf was excellent. The real joy is the beer brewed on site,... More
