Passing Through Pittsburgh... (part I)

I suppose this is a semi-appropriate post for Easter. During our recent road trip to West Virgina, we passed through Pittsburgh. I have been wanting to visit The Church Brew Works for years so I was great to finally make it there. The brewery is in a stunning former Catholic church. The pictures really don't do it justice...

We found ample parking outside on the street, which was a nice surprise since I really had no idea what kind of neighborhood the brewery was in.

This is the view on facing the front. Since its a huge space my camara (or more acurately, I) had difficulties with the lighting.

The former altar is now the brewery.

A closer view of the brewhouse. The large stainglass medalion from the front is reflecting on the glass that separtes the sancu...I mean the tasting room from the brewhouse.

Slightly fuzzy details of the stunning glass in the reflection of the brewhouse glass separator . More photos to follow...

There is definitely a joke to be made about having a brewery inside a former house of worship ("Our Lady of Hops," maybe) but I still have too much Monday morning on the brain to come up with a good one. :)
