Great food / atmosphere

The menu is an extensive mix of appetizers and entree's with a nice selection of local brews. Appetizers are delicious and out party of 10 had no complaints with their order. This as my first visit but will not be my last.

We made a happy hour excursion to the Church Brew Works on a Thursday evening. We had heard great things about both the food and beer. To start things off we ordered a tasting flight of the beer offerings. The flight consisted of approximately eight different beers. They were all very well made and I was truly impressed with five...

When you enter, you are greeted by a hostess. You can either a) sit on the left side, where ever you want and someone will assist you or b) sit on the right side where they will seat you and you will be served by a designated server. We opted for the left side. Both sides are busy, but I... More

First I would like to say I'm not a beer drinker and I don't go into many churches... I went here with my fiancé and his friend. They enjoyed the beers they tried... Not too many selections. The atmosphere is very interesting. I thought it was a really unique idea because the church decor is still very much present in... More

Good morning Ashlee, Thank you for your review. Please know that we take all reviews (good or bad) very seriously and strive to correct any issues. We did have 11 beers available and while for a bar, is not a lot, for a brewery is pretty good actually. We do offer wine and cocktails as well for those that are... More

Great brew house in an old beautiful church. Several brew and food choices. The interior is still set up as it was when parishioners were here for a higher purpose. Stained glass coupled with stainless steel brew tanks. A must see for the craft beer enthusiast.

Ask your friends and or colleagues if they want to go to Church for dinner. This is a conversation Starter that will be the lead in to a very different dining experience. Everyone, regardless of denomination will have a fun and memorable time. The food is satisfying and the beer... Superb. Head over now if in Pittsburgh or make it... More

This was my second time here. We had a family lunch on a Saturday afternoon and the place was packed (no wait though.) The Bib Lettuce Wrap appetizers were awesome (actually had them as my meal.) Also had the traditional pierogies which were very good. The Seven Onion soup (their custom version of French Onion) had a good mix of... More

This bar is about 11 miles outside of the city. It is an interesting concept to be brewing beer on the alter! The beer was all good and the food was great pub type food. Pizza was crispy with a light crust. Pierogi s were tasty! This place is huge! The stain glass windows were beautiful. I am glad I... More

The restaurant has a description detailing how they went about renovating the restaurant and how they i.e. repurposed the pews. Very interesting. I wish I could remember the name of the bartender ~ the service she provided during my Friday lunch was outstanding!
