“And on the eight day, man created beer”

On the 6th of  August in 1993, the church was put under an act of suppression by the Bishop of Pittsburgh. The building lay dormant until the construction began in early 1996. It was almost three years to the day when The Church Brew Works reopened the doors of St. John. As much painstaking effort was taken in the original construction of the building, the same care was used when the renovation of the church and the rectory was undertaken. Attention to detail and the reuse of existing fixtures all help to create a spectacular atmosphere. Painstaking attention to detail and the integrative reuse of existing fixtures all help to create a spectacular atmosphere to enhance your brewpub experience. By far, the most breathtaking element is the position of the brew house on the Apse. Because the altar was built as a centerpiece of the church, the steel and copper tanks gleaming in the celestial blue backdrop is nothing less than captivating. This extraordinary view is only paralleled by the quality and taste of our beer. Our brewers use their extensive knowledge of brewing to bring you four of the finest beers you will ever drink. Our North German Style Pilsner, Bavarian Dunkel, British Special Bitter and rotating Blast Furnace Stout are all hand crafted. These "brews" are sure to please your palate as much as our unique cuisine. The food selections draw on the culinary styles discovered throughout the country by Chef Jason Marrone. He has created a menu as diverse as Pittsburgh itself. And just like the city, there is something for everyone - so come and explore!
