Great Beer Bars in Pittsburgh
NameWebsitePart of townWhy you should go there
Fat Heads beers on tap, decent selection of bottles, the best bar food in Pittsburgh.
The Sharp Edge Beer Emporium 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 beers on tap, 350+ bottles available, good bar food.
D's Six Pax & Dogz Square15+ 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).
Harris Grill 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.
Piper's Pub beers on tap, great selection of scotch, great English/Irish pub food.
Point Brugge Café Breeze6 beers on tap, decent bottle selection, fantastic food and ambiance.
DISH Osteria & Bar beers on tap, decent bottle selection, fantastic food and ambiance.
Buffalo Blues 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 beers on tap, great bottle selection, great bar food.
The Library 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.
Primanti Brothers District, Oakland, Southside, DowntownBeer 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 DistrictDecent 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.
Penn Brewery german food and fresh beer brewed on the premises.
Firehouse Lounge DistrictDecent selection of bottles and drafts, cool atmosphere, dancing (if you dig that sort of thing).
Hofbräuhaus beer brewed on the premises, decent food, cool atmosphere.
Bloomfield Bridge Tavern cheap beer and dirt cheap polish food. Some of the best pirogies in town.
Bites and Brews/Elbow Room beer selection, good food.
