The Beer and Nightlife Thread v3
Welcome to the official beer and nightlife thread of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
For our old, trusty beer thread that got too big, go here:
As a service to new members, and to people from other cities that might be visiting, this post will grow to contain a bunch of information about beers to try and places in Pittsburgh to try them.
Great Beer Bars in Pittsburgh
Part of town
Why you should go there
42 beers on tap, decent selection of bottles, the best bar food in Pittsburgh.
The Sharp Edge Beer Emporium
28 Belgians on tap, 25 American Micros/Imports on tap, bottle selection so big that it needs a menu, decent but overpriced food. Their late night (after 10) and happy hours are great deals, though. HH is from 4:30 - 6:30 on weekdays and is half-off Belgian drafts, boneless wings and individual pizzas.
Smokin' Joe's Saloon
60 beers on tap, 350+ bottles available, good bar food.
D's Six Pax & Dogz
15+ beers on tap, 1000+ bottles in a beer cave from which you can mix and match six packs, great bar food (though it's pretty unhealthy in a lot of cases).
15+ beers on tap, occasional use of a Randall the Enamel Animal, decent selection of bottles, good happy hour every day, awesome bar food, nice front and rear patio areas.
20+ beers on tap, great selection of scotch, great English/Irish pub food.
Point Brugge Café
6 beers on tap, decent bottle selection, fantastic food and ambiance.
DISH Osteria & Bar
10 beers on tap, decent bottle selection, fantastic food and ambiance.
Good beer selection, decent food with good specials each night. Good place to watch sporting events, with lots of TVs and specials during games.
Fuel & Fuddle
10 beers on tap, great bottle selection, great bar food.
10+ beers on tap, decent bottle selection, decent food, the menus are made out of books, so you can do a little light reading while you wait for your food and drinks to arrive.
Strip District, Oakland, Southside, Downtown
Beer selection is pretty weak, but it's the home of the legendary Primanti Bros sandwich. Take some fresh Italian bread, add some kind of meat and cheese of your choosing, and then smother the crap out of that with cole slaw and fries.
Church Brew Works
Decent selection of beers brewed on the premises, good food that is somewhat overpriced, you get to drink in a church that has been remodeled into a brewery. The food and the beer will both probably disappoint you for the price, but it's something everyone should do at least once.
Decent german food and fresh beer brewed on the premises.
Decent selection of bottles and drafts, cool atmosphere, dancing (if you dig that sort of thing).
Decent beer brewed on the premises, decent food, cool atmosphere.
Bloomfield Bridge Tavern
Dirt cheap beer and dirt cheap polish food. Some of the best pirogies in town.
Bites and Brews/Elbow Room
Decent beer selection, good food.
