Time Out says

And just before he rested on the seventh day, God created beer, and it was really, really good. At Congregation Ale House (any of their three chapters: Long Beach, Pasadena and the Azusa brewpub), beer drinking is a religious experience. From Sunday brewpub bingo to a religious-themed playlist (not the latest Christian contemporary artist, don't worry), the theme is cool, not kitshy. But really, it's all about the beer. Each "chapter" at Congregation has at least a handful of homemade brews, from the Dark of the Covenant American strong ale to the fruity Praise On! Saison. Congregation is also good to beer-making friends—each chapter maintains an extensive guest tap list with frequent friendly tap takeovers. Next time your wallet is feeling a little light, repent at "mass" all day Monday, and 3-7pm and after midnight until close during the week for $1 off draft beers, a $4 special draft beer, and cheap food—there's a full menu here, with everything from pizza and burgers to beer floats and brunch. Yes, we said brunch.
