Though my dad and I are both currently doing the WeightWatchers Points Plus program, we each used some of the extra points we're given each week to splurge on our meals. We started with the "untraditional" pierogies—last night's selection featured chicken, tomato, and four cheeses, topped with a fresh basil pesto—and we each had a beer (I had the Pious Monk Dunkel, a dark lager regularly offered). While my dad was craving seafood and decided on the Shrimp Carbonara, I was enticed by the Crispy Vegetarian Polenta, a light dish that includes two generous helpings of herbed polenta, wild mushrooms (I'm not a fan, so I left those out), zucchini, blistered tomatoes, and a truffle-goat cheese sauce. With the edition of some grilled chicken and a side of bread with garlic butter, this dish was perfect! For dessert, we dove into the bread pudding with cinnamon ice cream. I've been to The Church Brew Works several times, and every meal I've gotten and every beer I've tried have been delicious and this combination of restaurant and church never ceases to amaze me. So, searching for God and great food, or maybe you're just in it for the beer?—then check out The Church Brew Works.
Sacreligious? Maybe. Unique atmostphere and delicious food and drinks? Definitely.
