The buffalo cauliflower and the pierogies appetizers were delicious! Everyone enjoyed their main meals as well. The atmosphere is super cool and beautiful. I did not drink but the 3 other people with me did and they seemed to enjoy all the beers they got. It's just a really awesome place to see if you have the time. Even the... More

This is a large beer hall that is a little cold and impersonal. It was a little disappointing that 3 of the featured beers were out which left us scrambling. It would likely be good for a large group. We did not have any food, but the beer was good and nicely priced.

Recommended by locals, tried this place out. Easy location to get to. Food was excellent (had the mushroom cheesesteak sandwich). Beer was good as well. Order the flight and try out 8 different beers. The coffee stout was my favorite.

I had never been to this restaurant, but a friend wanted to go for his birthday. What a disappointment. The tab and tip were almost $150. I had a steak that was half fat and gristle. I finally gave up trying to wrestle with it for fear that it was going to end up in the lap of the person... More

First off, who doesn't want to drink in a church? Great beer options! Food was okay, but. Beer and atmosphere is worth the trip. Do not pass this up! I'm giving it 5 stars because of the experience.

Me and my wife went here for dinner for some comfort food after the very chilly Steeler's playoff game. Several locals mentioned this place when we asked around. I thought it was a neat concept (I'm a Christian and I love historic buildings). The 'traditional' pierogies were were lightly fried to crisp / color the dough and a nice presentation.... More

We had to attend a funeral visitation for one of my wife coworker relatives, so on our way back to home, we realized we were right there in the vicinity of the Church Brew. We had dinner, having a flight of beer, to get use to the flavors. Our food was second to none, service was very good and price... More

A refurbished church with great Pizza and beer. We got the think crust with pepperoni and Italian sausage. Gone! As well as several oatmeal stout beers. Great place for lunch or dinner.

This place is crazy! It looks just like it did when it was a church! They kept all the decor and the beer is being brewed on the alter!!!! The beer is really good as well and they do wonderful flights so you can taste them all! Great place to have a drink or get some snacks. Lots and lots... More

I visited this place a few years back and returned. This place is awesome. As soon as you walk in, you're in awe of the entire facility. It is beautifully designed to pay homage its previous tenant (God), yet refined to serve some of Pittsburgh's best food and drafted beer. I was a huge fan of their dunkel, among other... More
