If you can wrap your head around this: Church Brew Works is an old church converted into a brewery. The atmosphere is second to none, and many of the church's original fixtures still remain to this day, including pews that were re-purposed into seating, etc. I've been here multiple times, and the best advice (if you're not into eclectic food...

This is a really cool place. the beer is good, but I won't say it is the best beer I have ever had. They just tapped the Pumpkin stout the night we ate there and I got a pint straight out of the pumpkin and it was really good. The pizza is the bomb. It was one of the best... More

A stunning way to use a redundant church. Great atmosphere, great service, and big enough for us to enjoy being part of the overall experience whilst still private enough for our own conversation. And as for the brewery on the altar .... Memorable!

The adaptation of the old Catholic Church to a microbrewery and restaurant saves the gorgeous architecture of this building. You have to view it for yourself. The food is all delicious. The beer is great too. A little pricey but we'll worth the visit

A unique setting for a brew pub and fun to look around. The porter was great and so was the salad. I will return when I am back in P- burg to try more beer!

This was my first time at Church Brew Works and it was amazing! The beer was great and the sangria was awesome. The food was average but who actually goes there for their pork. The atmosphere is great and very pretty. We will be coming back for sure!

Great menu selection. I was disappointed to have missed the Octoberfest beer by one day. The Schwarzbier was okay. The Blast Furnace stout was much better. I had the paella, and it was excellent. The portions were large. The restaurant was not particularly busy, but our party was seated in a very tight booth. There was a decent amount of... More
