Pittburgh Winter Classic

 First off, Happy New year!  Alex and I spent New Years in Pittsburgh for the Winter Classic.  We did a lot of eating and a lot of drinking!  As per a friend's recommendation, Alex and I enjoyed a restaurant called Fat Heads
 Alex was very excited about their 42 beers on tap and I was excited about their lambic beer; delicious!

I got a burger with bacon, sharp cheddar, horseradish sauce and a pierogi!

 Up next was the Church Brew Works; an old church made brewery!
 It was a very dreary day so the shots are a bit lackluster but you get the idea
 The church was built in 1907 and in 1996 it was turned into this brewery

 All the original works are still there

 Very difficult to get shots in here without a flash but it looks like a church
 On either side of the aisle are tables; some have pew benches, some don't

 If you look near the bottom of the picture, you can see where the actual beer is brewing
 At the altar was more brew equipment

Here is their beer sampler!  I was not bold enough to try it but our friends were!

Oh yeah, the Winter Classic!  Caps won and it was amazing to be there for it :-)
