I thought it was awesome, we stopped on a Saturday evening around 5pm maybe a touch earlier and got seated right away in the back, my wife sat on a pew and i had a chair, got the 8 draft sampler and was served promptly food is tasty but limited in selection and high in price.. the scenery and novelty of being in a church never wore off for me but did for my wife. they have bottles and growlers to go at reasonable prices, I quite enjoyed my time.

They did not have any beer left on tap for my first two choices!! What a start, but hey it got much better. Many brewpubs tag food along with the beer, and you can tell- when you start eating. NOT THIS PLACE. The food here is very good. I took my wife and in laws(who do not drink at all) and everybody loved it. The home made potato chips were great! I had a very good pulled pork sandwich. When you walk in- you will be either amazed or offended, as the brew works is set up on what used to be the alter of the church! One thing that I liked that this is a neighborhood restaurant with plenty of street parking-you feel like you are in Pittsburgh.

What a spectacular place. Although if you are to visit I walked over the hill (hill district) and would avoid this as the neighborhood is quite risky, but the location of the brewery, next to the old pittsburg brewery is great, the old St. Johns church is amazing. This is a must for craft brewery seekers. Brewing is done at the alter, the alter is replaced by a nice modern setup for brewing having been in place for 15 years. The food is ok with many local favorites and good bar food. However the beer selection is fantastic. I found the Pious Monk Dunkel excellent. Well done and a great afternoon spent!

This is the best brewpub in Pittsburgh (not that there are many). Of course it is set in an old church, complete with stained glass windows, pew-like tables, and the super high ceilings. It is a large place with a long, winding bar, tables next to the bar, and a large "restaurant" seating area. The beer is usually quite good and they often have some eclectic styles (for example just on yesterday - a lichtenhainer, a coffee pale ale, a brown ale with bergamot, and others). They usually have one cask. Their regulars are not very exciting (golden ale, pale ale, dunkel, and rotating stout) but their Thunderhop IPA (not sure if it is considered a regular) is really good. The food is pretty decent - slightly more upscale pub food. You can get sandwiches and pizza and there are some entrees as well. My only beef with this place is that the service can sometimes be slow, especially at the bar. They do have a happy hour (I think itís 5-7 where most beers are $3-3.50). There are 2 small TVs at either end of the bar, so itís not really a destination for sports watching. A good place to bring the family and definitely a good place to enjoy some interesting beer.

Iím going to give this place about a 794 for ambiance. Indeed it is located inside an old church, a big majestic one at that. Church pews, holy water fonts, beautiful stained glass windows, enough to make this lapsed Catholic feel very contemplative. They have a ton of space and they use it... a very long bar, tons of tables. The place seemed very quiet, but at one point there were nearly 40 people in the mid-afternoon on a weekday, so the large space really dampens the noise. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Customer service was professional but a little lacking. The exception to that was lithy coming out after his brew day to chat, and even tapping a new beer so I could try it. Thanks man! There is a sampler available... pricy but very large (40 ounces). The beers were all solid with a couple of standouts. Growler fills available and some bottles to go. Plenty of parking out back. My expectations for this place were very high, and I was not disappointed. If you want to literally worship beer, this is the place to go.

Great venue, good food. I stop by nearly every time Iím in Pittsburgh. Good selection of beers. I donít love all their beers but they mix their staples and rotating brews and one-offs.

I had a great experience here. The brewmaster, Matt, gave my friends and I a private tour of the facilities. He was super hospitable and the main reason I will go back. In addition, my lunch was amazing. Definitely get a pizza if you ever go. We got the buffalo wild boar and I cant wait to have it again.

The ambiance of this place is great, worth the visit. The food is good, certainly above average, however the beer is definitely lacking. I remember years ago the beer was much better, the brewery won some awards. However, there have been many people in the beer industry that have told me that the taste of their beer has really gone downhill. It seems the beer is average at best.
