Located on the insanely busy Carson St. in Pittsburgh, good luck finding a parking spot here on a weekend night. There are only a couple pay lots and street parking is soaked up by the residents. If you are lucky enough to snag a spot though, head to Fat Headís.

Inside the dining area is on the right and in the rear, while the bar is on the immediate left. Taps line the wall, and on the opposite side are large boards that list the beer club members who have completed the circuit. There is a lot of wood and the walls are a strange seafoam color. There are a few TVs to watch too.

The beer selection is impressive to say the least. Nearly 50 beers on tap (one on cask) and probably twice that in bottles. On draught they have Troegís, Stone, Heavyweight, Victory, Rogue (including the Rogue Fat Headís ESB) etc. In bottles they have an extensive selection of micros and imports.

The service is good despite the crazy crowds this place seems to draw.

The food here is really good. The Wanzco Chicken sandwich is particularly tasty, and they have good homemade chips.

Overall this place is a must stop if you are in Pittsburgh but you are going to work for it unless you go on a weekday afternoon.

Ended our night in Pittsburgh here and it was a pretty good stop. Crazy massive portions of pretty tasty burgers and sandwiches - I walked in hungry and couldnít get through my burger in spite of that. A large selection of guest taps and an oddly limited selection of their own stuff (only the Head Hunter and a Blueberry fruit beer). The place is very popular and we ended up having to wait for 90 minutes to get seated (although with Smokiní Joeís two blocks away, that wasnít all that much of a sacrifice). The prices were pretty good and I had a great time hanging out with the Pittsburgh crew. I particular enjoyed watching one of the locals get shot down by the hostess.

Visited with friends a few years back. One among many of food-beer theme bars in the US. Located in the busy festive Pittsburgh area. Decent draft and craft beer selection with delicious menu of again, pub food but just great burgers and sandwiches ... after all this is Pittsburgh and yes, the place was insanely crowed when we got there. .

This bar has the best beer selection in Pittsburgh. They have numerous taps, including ~5 of the Fat Head house beers, and they get the most interesting/unique kegs available in the Pittsburgh area. They also offer a few Arsenal ciders regularly. The one downside to the place is that it is almost always crowded. I remember once they had a special firkin of Sierra Nevada Celebration and I arrived 30 minutes after it was tapped - it had already kicked. So bear this in mind when you visit, especially if itís during game time. It has a sports bar kind of theme, but is also very family friendly. There is outdoor patio seating available (which is covered in the winter). The food menu is a bit more extensive than your typical bar - their specialty is sandwiches. Watch out, their portions are HUGE. Overall, the best place for beer in Pittsburgh but if youíre looking for a more cozy, intimate setting this may not be the place for you.

Stopped in for dinner and a few beers a couple of nights ago. Pretty cool building that always seems really busy. Was a able to grab a stool at the bar where I had 3 Fat Head beers that were all solid. They had 12 or so of their own offerings and at least as many guest taps. Nothing rare, but a solid tap list none-the-less. Mine only gripe with this place was the food. Everything that I saw come to the bar looked great, but I went with a buffalo shrimp appetizer which was horrible, and a buffalo chicken sandwich which was disappointing as well. i am going to stop in again before I leave town to try another sandwich as like I said the offer food I saw looked great.

Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. Parking is payed across the street. Wasnít too busy, despite the Steelers game being on TV. Walked in and was seated immediately. 42 beers on draft. Donít think they had a bottle menu. If they did, I never saw it. My burger was delicious, Southside Slopes, highly recommend it. The homemade potato chips were very good as well. Service was quick, attentive, and friendly. The beer was very good, I stuck to the Fat Heads stuff. If you get the chance to stop in here, I would highly recommend it. You wonít be let down. The bottle shop upstairs had a nice selection of around 75 to 100 bottles. If you buy them individually, youíll get ripped off. However, if you build a 6 pack, you get a $12 discount, which evens things out a good bit. This part is still pretty pricy.

Parking on street only, so it is not easy. Good mix of 20 somethings and 30 somethings for the most part. My sandwich was the size of my head and was very good pulled pork. the onion rings were great. There is a bar on the front left. The rest is tables for food. The place was busy, but we got a seat right away. Service was good and food was brought pretty quickly. They have a shop up stairs with a limited number of fat heads six-packs and other beers which they have a paper list of, and some fat heads paraphernalia. They had a selection of fat heads and other beers on draft. They donít have a sampler though. Really good time, hope to go back.

Had a late lunch here today. All TVs tuned to Boston College vs. Pacific. Nice tap list, though there werenít many I hadnít tried already. Settled on a Great Divide Titan IPA to go with my chicken fingers and fries. Decent menu and the portion sizes are for the serious eater. Service was excellent and I enjoyed my hour there. I know they get darned crowded on weekends, so if you really want to enjoy a quiet pint or two, itís best to go during the off hours. Even on a Thursday afternoon, it was pretty busy, though a lot of that was probably because of March Madness.

Great place. 40 or so on tap & mostly good choices. Victory, Stouts. DFH, Maredsous. Lots of Belgians in bottles. Huge menu with all sorts of choices of pub fare. Nice beer passport for regulars. Love the carry out bottle shop upstairs. Why canít we do that in NY?

How I missed going to this place eludes me. On the South Side with cheap parking just across the street. A ton of taps, all solid craft beers. Loads of Fat Headís stuff, maybe 10. A small expensive bottle shop upstairs. The food looked great, I didnít partake. Lively, good service and relaxed. A great place. The bartender offered a few samples as well.
