2017-03-04. Renovated church space is nice. Stained glass windows, stools at a long bar and lots of seating. The tables are a bit closer together than my preference especially on a surprisingly busy Saturday afternoon. They offer a decent selection of their own beers as well as a few guest taps. Server was friendly but not super attentive - though in fairness we lingered on our drinks so she may have assumed we were good. They have a small food menu with the food prep area situated at one end of the building. We had already eaten lunch at The Pie Plate across the street - which also sells baked goods to go. Overall itís a nice space and well worth including in a beer/wine tour of the area but how much you enjoy their house beers will likely be the determining factor in how often you return.

Lovely old converted church. Weíve been here a few times over the past year, and every time itís busier than the last. They have a small selection of their own brews that doesnít seem to change. Occasional seasonal beers appear, but they seem to reappear year over year. I find most of their beers good but unremarkable, except for the great Black Lager. Food is provided by Tide and Vine in the back of the church; pretty good food, though it seems a bit pricey for the portions.

Small brewpub in an old church with hop vines hanging outside - ambiance is pretty much perfect. Service was a little slow and disorganized, but they seemed to be extra busy (with bachelor parties) when we came (dinner time on Saturday). Acceptable selection of beers - 6 different ones. Dark Lager and Breakfast Wheat were the winners. Food was fine, but nothing special. Overall recommended if youíre a beer fan in the otherwise wine-filled Niagara-on-the-Lake area.

Visited on June 25, 2015 for lunch. Located in the heart of the village of Virgil (almost the center of Niagara-on-the-Lake), in a former church, the pub section that is with an extension on the side for the brewery. Despite its small size, it feels big, wide open, long bar, there is some church elements, mix with your typical comfy pub look. They only had four of their beer on tap, plus four invited taps, the Damn Buster English Ale was nice but the Bavarian Breakfast Wheat was really good and I bought a bottle of Black Lager. The food menu is limited, offered by Tide & Vine, their speciality is oysters (yes the brewpub do have a oyster stout as a seasonal), but I had the bratwurst and for the first time in my life, I ate sauerkraut, which is braised with their Bavarian Breakfast Wheat and does not smell like a bucket of vinegar, it was good. This is no doubt a cool place and not bad for a brewery in wine country!

Adorable smaller tasting room, with a half a dozen taps on including a couple of guest taps. Bottle shop, decent daily hours. Cody is the manager and an relate to newbies and beer nerds alike.

A stunning church restoration that is worth the visit unto itself. Service was good with staff that knew their stuff. Beer was their own and was the only weak point. They are getting a new brewer which may change things. Worth a few ticks and a nice atmosphere.

What a great place. Only beer is house beers and when I was here had 5 to pick from tried all,all good one was great it was a strawberry peppercorn saison that was limited edition and should be brewed year round so good. A very unique brewery because it is in a old church and is laid out well.

A beautiful little brewery in an old Anglican Church. A sizable bar down one side with the brewery itself situated at the back of the room. The server was enthusiastic and chatty (perhaps a bit too chatty) but could have used some more education about what was in the glass. Some of the beers were well dialled in (schwarz and wheat) some less so (a few IPAs that were quite bad). It got a pretty good vibe - I just hope they sort out some of the less appealing products because you could definitely kill a few hours in here.
