This is just a cool place. Period.

I'm reviewing this on my second visit to Church Brew Works. The first time was several years ago (ahh long before my beeradvocate days).

The first time I went in, years ago, it was a very strange experience. Having grown up Catholic, when you walk into a Church there are certain things you are supposed to do. Belly up to the bar is not one of them. But here I was in what LOOKED like a Catholic Church but instead I was in a brewpub.

This being my second experience and having some idea of what to expect, it was a little easier to sit in the former church (in a "pew" at my table), order food and have a few beers.

That said, this place is awesome! The atmosphere is unique, to say the least. It's cool and dim inside the former church. A bar is to your left and many many tables are spread out throughout the rest of the space. During the summer months there is an outdoor patio, which they call the "hop garden".

The quality is excellent. The food is delicious, with a variety of options (being a vegetarian, that's very important to me!). The service was good. Our waitress was very busy with several parties so she didn't come back to check on us as often as we might have liked but she was knowledgable about the food and brews she was serving.

All in all, if you are EVER in Pittsburgh this unique place is NOT to be missed!
