Actually my third time over the last 5 years or so visiting this place my old Mackinac Island buddy Steve was the lead saute chef there at one time Iam not sure he is there anymore though anyways to the review.How can you not love the inside of this place big stained glass windows high ceilings just an old world feeling to it,me and my wife sat in the bar area because we wanted to get something quick to eat with a few beers before the Tigers-Pirates game our server was prompt and friendly the bar menu was much more expansive than most bar menus wood fired pizzas to the perogies of the day we went with the tomato basil wood fired pizza and it was very good we could see the pizza being made in the corner.The beer range went from a oatmeal stout to a Belgian pale I had 4 offerings with the Blast Furnace oatmeal stout being the best.I always like coming here when in Pittsburgh along with Penn brewing the old world charm of this place makes it a cant miss when in town in my mind.

This place is enormous. A small brew system occupies the pulpit, with fermentation/serving tanks behind the long bar to the left of this picture. I'm not so sure about the tawdry yellow flags and signs though--it seems to detract from the majesty of this place. They also had un ugly yellow bopping hot air driven promo thing outside that I associate with cut-rate used car lots. It was crowded but not insane and our service was accurate and fast.

We had a pretty good pizza with wild boar and BBQ sauce made with one of their beers along with a side order of terribly cooked fries. My wife and I shared a sampler of all their beers. This was a mixed bag--some were good, others not as thrilling. None were outright terrible, but overall they reminded me of the brewpub beer quality from the early 1990's. My favorite was actually the light lager since it was the cleanest of the bunch. I have a hard time believing that these beers won GABF medals, but I know that things can change batch to batch and possibly brewer to brewer. I tried to look up some details on the brewer, but the garish bright blue website didn't have any information. I would certainly recommend checking this place out, but I found several better places for beer even in the same suburb.

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
