Great Beer Bars in Pittsburgh
NameWebsitePart of townWhy you should go there
Fat Headshttp://fatheads.com/Southside42 beers on tap, decent selection of bottles, the best bar food in Pittsburgh.
The Sharp Edge Beer Emporiumhttp://sharpedgebeer.com/Friendship28 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 Saloonhttp://www.smokinjoessaloon.com/Southside60 beers on tap, 350+ bottles available, good bar food.
D's Six Pax & Dogzhttp://www.ds6pax.com/Regent 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 Grillhttp://www.harrisgrill.com/Shadyside15+ 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 Pubhttp://piperspub.com/Southside20+ beers on tap, great selection of scotch, great English/Irish pub food.
Point Brugge Caféhttp://www.pointbrugge.com/Point Breeze6 beers on tap, decent bottle selection, fantastic food and ambiance.
DISH Osteria & Barhttp://www.dishosteria.com/Southside10 beers on tap, decent bottle selection, fantastic food and ambiance.
Buffalo Blueshttp://www.b2restaurants.com/buffaloblues/ShadysideGood beer selection, decent food with good specials each night. Good place to watch sporting events, with lots of TVs and specials during games.
Fuel & Fuddlehttp://www.fuelandfuddle.com/Oakland10 beers on tap, great bottle selection, great bar food.
The Libraryhttp://www.thelibrary-pgh.com/Southside10+ 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 Brothershttp://www.primantibrothers.com/Strip 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 Workshttp://www.churchbrew.com/Strip 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 Breweryhttp://www.pennbrew.com/NorthsideDecent german food and fresh beer brewed on the premises.
Firehouse Loungehttp://www.firehouse-lounge.com/Strip DistrictDecent selection of bottles and drafts, cool atmosphere, dancing (if you dig that sort of thing).
Hofbräuhaushttp://www.hofbrauhauspittsburgh.com/SouthsideDecent beer brewed on the premises, decent food, cool atmosphere.
Bloomfield Bridge Tavernhttp://www.myspace.com/polishpartyhouseBloomfieldDirt cheap beer and dirt cheap polish food. Some of the best pirogies in town.
Bites and Brews/Elbow Roomhttp://www.b2restaurants.com/bitesandbrews/ShadysideDecent beer selection, good food.

To deserve this thread you have to change your screenname to something more...alcoholic.

I give Husker the Johnnie Walker seal of approval to start v4. He has been carrying this thread for some time now. I feel terrible that the alcohol thread I started has gotten out of my hands a bit as i haven't had as much time to dedicate to alcohol consumption in recent years. My job has taken over my drinking time!

I plan to snag some Nugget Nectar soon though.

If I just had half the liver HT obviously has... I'm enjoying a Southern Tier Mokah Stout. That's pretty much a one and done for me tonight.

I made it to Hopworks yesterday and seemingly had one of everything. In addition to the great beer and food, if you are interested in sustainable business practices, this place is tops.

not only is alcohol way more convenient to buy in SC than PA, it is also way cheaper. I'm excited.

Shopping in a non PA beer store is enlightening, that's for sure. Makes you hate PA beer laws even more.

Sipping a NN for the Pens game but my beer consumption has been way down. I've always liked a well made Manhattan as much as anything but I've really been choosing cocktails (usually bourbon or gin) over beer lately.

Bell's Hopslam is excellent. 10%abv, feeling it and I haven't finished the first. Really nice floral hops with a touch of honey which really helps balance the bitterness of the hops.

The store I go to has the original and hefe. They might get the others in at different times of the year, though. Might ask about their Dunkel next time I'm up there. Already need to ask about the Ephemere Black Currant.

Red Tail Ale. nothing fancy, but it's well balanced. slight hints of carmel and toffee. finishes a bit too sweet.

I love this beer too. I'm glad I grabbed some when I did because I haven't seen it since.

Opening the bottle of Adriaen Dark Gold Ale...strange experience. Difficult to get the cork out, no co2 pop when the cork did come out and there is no live carbonation present. Not sure if I got a bad bottle or what, but it's flat. Actually tastes like a pretty decent Belgian dark, very fruity sweet. But this isn't right without carbonation. If it's spoiled, I'll be sick in the morning...

Reading reviews online, this should definitely have plenty of carbonation, just like most Belgian Darks...

Picked up two six packs of good ol' Samuel Adams Boston Lager this evening.

Also bought and tried a can of this...



T'was a very refreshing IPA. Very hoppy and delicious. I'd definitely buy it again. Plus it has shown me that Canada can make good beer.
