I stopped in for the novelty and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the beer and eats. Great take on shrimp & grits and the buffalo meatloaf with rosemary whipped potatoes is the height of comfort food. Went to "mass" twice in the same week. It is a large space and I was very comfortable eating at the bar.... More

We were visiting from out of town and stopped in for a drink. My husband and I split the beer flight so we could sample all the beers. There were 8 different brews we got to try. We weren't fans of a lot of the beer but we did like The Donald, Mexican Lime Lager. We also got the chicken... More

We found the interior quite spectacular. With the vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows and the pews for seats. It's quite spectactular to see. Though, it can be quite loud. They only have a couple of TV's, so it's not a great sports bar, if that's what you're looking for. We only tried the pulled pork sandwich. Personally, I found it... More

Nice food choices. The beer is always good. We enjoy the style and love how the beautiful features of the former church have been incorporated into the restaurant.

located in an old church with lots of rooms. They have their own beers. It was fun to try their beers. Love the food I ordered. Over all it's a good place you should try.

WE have been to Church Brew Works a few times and had a wonderful time each time. The Beers brewed there are great. The brewing equipment is in the alter so each time we go there I always pray to the Bree Gods. The food is very good and moderately priced. Our favorite aspect of the brewery is they keep... More

Church Brew Works is an interesting place to visit. The food was good but I was disappointed that they no longer served their brick oven pizza. It was the best thing on the menu.

Stopped for some bites and drinks and found the sheer size to be over whelming compared to the number of patrons that were there. Perhaps the weekends are busier And that space is needed?!

The chance to go to something different than a standard brewery is what we came for and it was a great building and a very cool set up. Our server Blane was great at explaining the different beers that were on tap. The beers were a little bit of a let down other than two of the special brews in... More

We were here for a bday celebration. It is a casual fun atmosphere. There is a good choice to pick from to sample the beers. The church is beautiful inside.
