During the restoration process, much effort was taken to reuse as many of the church's original fixtures as possible, including tables and the bar area using materials from the church's pews. However, the restaurant's most striking feature is undoubtedly the position of the brew house on the alter. As in any church, the altar was built as a centerpiece, so to see these massive tanks up there instead of a priest reciting a homily is just brilliant and a sight one will always remember.
For his entree D ordered the 3-Alarm Cheesesteak ($11.75). The three-alarm moniker was due to the fact that it featured jalapenos and melted pepper-jack cheese on top the Morgan Ranch Kobe Beef.
There is ample on street parking, although a lot behind the building is also available for dining patrons. Dinner (at least on the weekend) can be a mad house so either come early or be prepared for a wait. Dining at the Church Brew Works is probably one of the most unique settings for a meal, so I definitely recommend coming here to eat if you haven't already done so. Although it's located outside of the city center, it's a straight shot from the city's downtown making the 10 minutes it takes to get there easy and uncomplicated.
