Burgers, sweet potatoes and tater tots were delish! We tried the passion of kolsch and the second round was different cuz they ran out of the first one. This second beer is a we bit hoppier than the first.

First of all the place was hopping for a Friday night so with the self service so slow, guess it was to be expected. We were a large group and shared the pizza and nibbles, my wife had the Cobb salad and she loved it! Definitely go back. The Scottish Ale was my fave.

Ale House has a wide variety of beer selections. The food is basically self service as you order at the counter then wait till your food comes out. The atmosphere is ok and nothing special.

The atmosphere at Congregation Ale House is very casual and friendly. The food, which is ordered at the counter and then delivered to your table, is excellent and reasonably priced. Fun place to gather with co-workers and friends.

I discovered the Congregation Ale House a few years back visiting my parents in Pasadena. Since then it has become a must do activity whenever I am in town. They have an excellent selection of beers, some of their own creation, others high-end offerings from other brewers. The atmosphere is interesting, pretty dark and the wood fixtures give it a...

This is a fun place to go. Very casual. Shared tables. The beer list changes with every list. Most beers are on tap. Good artisan pizzas and other food too.

Have been here a couple times for happy hour with co-workers. Nice place, decent parking and fun atmosphere. Kinda of loud so not a place for an intimate convo. Good happy hour specials and yummy bites.
