An old church redone as a brewery! The alter now has huge beer tanks instead of anything religious! Tried pierogi... wasnt overly impressed (its basically a dumpling with mash potatoes inside with gravy) but always down for trying local cuisine. I had a chocolate stout which was amazing! The IPA was also top notch, there were no complaints all round... More

This is an old church converted into a beautiful restaurant/bar. The food and drinks were good. but overall, the place is just average. I thought it was a bit overpriced.

We had heard about their pizza, and we went there expecting to eat some pizza. The pizza oven started a fire months prior and still hadn't been repaired. The server was really nice, the food was mediocre, the drink selection was good. The venue itself is kind of odd being in a church, but it was an interesting experience.

We just moved to Pittsburgh and stumbled across Church Brew works for dinner. Yes, this is a historical property that used to be a church! It's beautiful, with arched ceilings, stained glass windows, and even church pews as seats. The beer is excellent (according to my husband, who tried the sampler which allowed him to experience several small glasses at... More

This is a great building to see -- it was a former large church and is now a brew house. Staff was friendly, but service was a little slow even though they weren't very busy. The food was so-so, an odd menu. The food was not hot but lukewarm and portions are small. I was still hungry after I left.... More

I haven't been to CBW in years. Went in December. I wasn't overly impressed like I would have to of been, but it was good. Our server was great, so personable and on top of it. I had the bison meatloaf and it was wonderful. Desserts and salads were okay. Will go back. Recommend.

We've been a few times and never had a bad experience. The food is good with interesting choices. The pierogies are always the right choice! Can be a bit on the noisy side but manageable. Service excellent.
