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.

This is probably the first and last time I will have been eating and drinking in a church. Our server was cute but it didnít really way up for the boring beers and the pizzaís where interesting at best, but way over priced.

The location is the most impressive about this place, located in a church from just after 1900. The decoration is done in a nice way, the brewery and tanks well integrated with the church interior. Didnít fancy the pizza and the beers were just ok but nothing to write home about. Always wanted to see the place, now I have.

Street parking a little away from the main spots in the city. The outside already makes the ambiance a 5/5. A church turned into a brewery, such a cool thing. The inside makes it even better. Just one of the coolest beer related places I have seen so far. I sat at the bar on a Sunday evening and had good and fast service. The didnít have a rotating stout on tap at the time of my visit, but had plenty of other beers to pick from. I shared a pizza and it was above average. Just sitting in this place and having a few beers was such a cool experience and I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Pittsburgh.

Stopped in here when in town for work this week. Awesome setup in an old church like nothing I have ever seen. Freaking cool as hell. Huge place with lots of setting and a large bar space. Almost too big. They had about 10 taps with regulars and rotating seasonal stuff. Bottles and growlers abailable. Tried a couple brews on draft and got some Apps and a pizza. Good was very good, but the beer left something to be desired. Definitely worth a stop in but donít expect mind blowing brews.

One of the coolest places Iíve ever drank a beer. Awesome huge old church. The brewery itself is on the altar. Server was extremely friendly and helpful. Proactively offered tasters when I was torn between 2 choices and answered my questions. Slight deduction for the food being a bit slow coming out. Selection is very disappointing. The beer itself is fine but there just isnít much variety given that youíre drinking it at the source. Food is creative and tasty. Had rattlesnake and cactus pierogies with chipotle corn chowder as an app (ok) and pizza with wild boar, corn, mozzarella and BBQ sauce made with Pious Monk Dunkel (awesome). Prices seem ok. All in all definitely worth seeing once.

Parking was on the street, but we found a spot right away. This place is a beautiful old catholic church where. Long bar on the left with tables also available. Church drafts only, and they didnít seem to have bottles. I had the sampler which was nine 5-oz. samples for around $13. Of the nine samples, two were good, six were average, and one was not good. I did not have the food.

Unique setting! Never thought I would drink in a church, but now I have.Very good beer selection, and the food was excellent. Pierogis are a must! The brewery was in the alter of the church and I thought I heard angels singing when I walked in and saw all that steel and copper. I believe it was nectar of the gods in there. Amen!

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!
