Visited October 16, 2013.
Finally made it to the third Congregation. They happened to be doing trivia at that time which is fun to listen in on but I wasnít prepared to make the time commitment to play all the way through. The setup is very similar to the other two locations where they have a couple dozen interesting taps (and no macros), the catholic school girl servers and associated decorations, the cooled coasters built into the bar (very neat but not sure how practical it is for stemmed glasses), and a fair amount of bottles to choose from. Since I hadnít had a Blue Dot in a while that seemed like the thing to order. That and some artichoke. The food here is a little on the high end in terms of pricing but itís pretty good, though they love mayonnaise-based things so be warned if you donít like that. Service was friendly as always. It can get crowded but no more so than any other bar in Pasadena. Will definitely stop in again some time when in the area.

do not really have a reason to rate this place,but only doing so to let people know that 1/2 way through my first beer a server put bingo cards on the tables and said that a game was going to start in 5 minutes.
note to manager/staff;you might want to let us know before we order!

Stopped in here after leaving Stone in disgust. Pretty nice selection of draft beers, though I canít say there was anything mind blowing or obscure on. A lot of Belgian stuff. The staff was friendly and the service was quick. Pretty decent pricing for Pasadena.

Quite impressive tap and bottle menu. Not very beer-savy order takers. The bartender seems to know his stuff but their setup does not promote interacting with the bartender. Service was quick though. Ambience is big and impersonal sports bar. Porch seating was pleasant but lots of traffic noise and loud music playing.

20 taps of good variety. Food was okay but the prices were right on both food and beer. You can order from anybody. For some reason staff is dressed as Catholic School Children which is weird IMHO. Its right next to the train tracks to a little nosy but the front patio was nice on a summer evening.
