4.2/5  rDev +2.7%

Church Brew Works is a unique place to enjoy a brew, albeit a bit out of the way in Pittsburgh. the ceoncept of converting a church to a brewpub has novelty on its side, even though the pews as seating is a bit uncomfortable. most of the original decor is left, with the brewing equipment where the altar would be. the bar is off to one side, with tables and chairs throughout the space. the size of the space removes any chance of an intimate setting, however this is not a bad thing.

quality is good. proper glassware and clean conditions for the beer and food, as well as some good brews as well. the food was on par with a normal brewpub; above bar food in quality but below fine dining.

service was nice. though the wait staff might not know beer, they were more than willing to inquire and do not mind obscure questions.

selection was decent. eight or so offerings with a couple special editions availble in 750ml bottles. nothing too extreme style wise, but solid brews throughout the spectrum; the coconut stout was excellent!

the food was good. do not expect anything out of the ordinary as far as brewpub fare goes, but a couple unique menu items seem to creep into the otherwise base list.

overall this is a stop that is worth the trip for those visiting Pittsburgh. it is a ten minute bus ride (provided the buses are running), and is close to the universities. cheers!

Great perogies and pizza, great aps and entrees too, albeit on the pricey side but a great dining experience in a old Catholic church, tons of great craft beers all on tap and very fresh that rotate often, you will spend Morton's/ Ruth Chris money (at least I do) but very satisfying.
Try it
