Great venue! Lots of local brews to try. Get the sampler and try several. The bison corn dogs were the highlight. Very good!! Also ordered the filet mignon but was disappointed with quality and preparation of beef (not much flavor). Beet salad was pretty tasty. A must see bar in Pittsburgh!!

The food was really good and our waitress was very friendly. I had the mango sangria and my friend had one of the speciality brews (Brett Ambrosia), which were both tasty. The atmosphere was different from anywhere I've ever been (being in an actual church) but it was neat. I would recommend to anyone visiting Pittsburgh, especially beer drinkers!

I've been to quite a few brew pubs, but this one is my favorite. It is very unique to have a brewery in an old church. The food was excellent.

This is quite an unusual setting for a brewery / restaurant and is definitely a must-see if you visit Pittsburg. The beers were very good and the food was also quite decent. Definitely a place to go for something a little out of the ordinary!

I've gone with my family and hosted a large party at Church Brew Works. The food and service are consistently good - and the beauty of the former church is well worth a visit.

Fun place to go as a tourist! A former Catholic Church that is now a brewery. The inside still looks like a church with stained glass windows, center aisle, and the alter with the distillery. The beers served are their own brews, so if you are hoping for a regular lite beer, you won't find it there. My husband knew... More

An evening with family at a unique place. Brewery is in an old church. Beer selection is good with lots of different brews. The food is just average. My mussels were very small, but the perogies were good. My husband liked the onion soup but thought the beet salad with chicken was too well done. It is noted for its... More

In that order is how I would rate this out of the ordinary establishment. The awe of eating and drinking in a church gave the feel of starting our first year at Hoggwarts eating in the great hall. The food was flavorful, filling and fresh. The beer, well... I've had better. Thunder hop was probably a table favorite. We also... More

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
