There’s a lot of special beer-related stuff in our drinking town with a football problem. But no place highlights the wonderful degree to which we recognize that beer is a religious experience than The Church Brew Works. It’s not enough to just drink beer in a church. We drink beer that was made in a church. That’s commitment.
The Church has scored itself a Wikipedia page, where I learned that the use of the building for worship services was separated from the imbibing of brew by but three years. That’s less than the waiting period to date your sister’s ex. Lest anyone think this has disrespectful overtones, you should take in this fine history of the sale and restoration of the St. John the Baptist Church. Seems that the old Catholic church was falling into disrepair for years before being rescued by the brewery crew. Now it’s a most beautiful and interesting place to sit around eating appetizers and drinking aptly-named microbrews.
Obviously, it goes without saying, there’s nothing to compare to it outside the ‘Burgh. I’m clearly not getting Pious Monk Dunkel at this place.
If The Church is unable to fulfill its duties as the Most Awesome Beer Santuary in Pittsburgh, the crown and sash will pass to the first runner up.
