Been here a few times. About 6 beers on tap. Almost all clean and nice lagers. We had a wedding here and the service was amazing, they were very cool. The main area has lots of good German style food and bands from time to time. A very cool older Western PA place. I always enjoy visiting.

Neat space with a good selection on tap. It feels a bit touristy, but has massive potential. The service seemed pretty over it, but I’d recommend stopping by if you’re in the area.

Probably the most underrated brewery, one of Pittsburgh’s best kept secrets. A great local brewery, great prices on drafts, good selection of German style brews, and good prices for their food. A great Oktoberfest stop, and if anyone if looking for something to do in the evenings, a great stop. They now have local bands on the weekends. Parking across the street, brick roads leading into the building (dating back to the mid 1800’s). Worth the visit and revisit!

Food is okay--The beer is great. Reminds me a lot of German Brewery.

Looks like a 19th century building from the outside and a down at the heel biergarten on the inside. Very small bar with only 5 chairs and lots of long tables. They have 10 things on tap almost all Gernan style brews. Nothing I had was particularly outstanding. Luckilly parking is free and there’s even a covered lot next to the brewery.$10 for a five beer sampler is way overpriced. I’d only come back for the beer tics.

Beer selection is on the small side, but generally all are solid offerings.
Food is almost nasty. I ordered the potato pierogies and they brought me out a plate of nasty dry "beer battered cod" pierogies.
Outdoor courtyard is delightful when the weather’s right and reminded me a lot of western europe.

Cool location. Food was excellent but a bit pricey. Beers were great. Had a good time here.

I am so glad they are back up and in business full swing again! Was there last for the microbrew festival in June and shortly after they reopened the time before that. Food is still as good as always with some small changes to the menu. Now that they are brewing their beers again (and not contracted out to Lions) the quality is back up to what it was before. And their Pale Ale (their first ale brew) is actually quite good.

What’s the story? I was there on 8/1/09. Had 2 samplers and loved all we tried. The next week I heard they closed. Is there a future for Penn. Their Christmas Ale and Penn Dark were excellent.
