One of my locals, always nice and dark, appreciated it more before they went non smoking (as of 3/1/08), but I am a damn dirty smoker, so... yeah. Always a nice selection of IPA, food is above average. Service can be spotty on busy nights, but for the most part pretty good.
I can say this place has the best draft list of any mexican restaurant I have ever been to. Actually, not a bad draft list as far as beer savvy places goes. If you want good mexican but cant be without a great beer this is the place.
As a card carrying member of the Rouge Nation, I was surprised to find the Latona 20th Anniversary this far east. We had very good service and were impressed with the selection. The food was well presented. The delivery was quick and flying in from Beervana, this gave a good first impression. The second beer was for dessert. Atwater Java Porter. Bring on the ice cream. Beer float time.
I enjoy drinking and eating at mad mex alot. I was out at robinson waiting to pick my aunt up from the airport. Hit their happy hour special , 1/2 off pints form 5-7. About 15 rotating taps makes for a great 2 hour period. Had such tasty brews as Green Flash IPA, Rogue Fatherís little helper, Dogfish Head Peche and wings for under $20!

This is a great place to go sample beers. And... their wings special during happy hour is great! They have beers on tap that nobody else has. I avoided this place because of the traffic and now I regret that I did. I had a big glass of Rogue Imperial Stout for $5. I also got to taste 5 other beers for a minimum charge. Lisa was really helpful in enlightening me about the beer styles and I would not hesitate to return for a future visit. My rating for selection is based on their taps. Very pleasant and the food is said to be great. Nice atmosphere. Food is really southwest special, great happy hour prices, especially the wings..

My restaurant of choice in Pittsburgh. Their bleu cheese is like no other and I have, on occassion, gone in and just bought a container of bleu cheese to go to eat with celery. They have a good selection of micro brews in bottles to go (for 12.00) but it only includes a certain panel. The good stuff (the rares and seasonals) must be purchased separately. I go there at least 5 times a month for wings. Awesome.
Kinda stashed away in the middle of an office-block. I stopped by on a Sunday, and had a hard time telling if they were open. Cool artsy decor, super clean. Good chow. Lots of northeastern regional beers - so if youíre from some other region, itís a good stop in a state where you can only buy beer by the case. You can buy a sixpack to-go for $12, so I salted some back for the Ohio leg of my trip. Sunday was dead, but Emily the barkeep was a pro. Off Route 60 on the way to the Pitt airport.
Always a suprise there. They seem to have a nice rotating beer selection with at least a couple of nice beers on tap. Service is always good. The bartenders are pretty knowledgable about the beers on tap. Free chips and salsa at the bar and some good burritos fromt the menu. Pretty good place.

So far, the Robinson location had the best beer selection. I went the week after New Years and they still had several seasonals left like Christmas beers and barleywines. Several selections from Stone, Dogfish Head, Rogue, Anchor, Troegs, Stoudts, some Belgian imports, and other PA micros. Prices for draught and bottles is slightly high, but hard to find in other area bars. Mad Mex is one of the better Mexican restaurant chains in this area and I really like the food. Located in the shopping areas, near the mall, IKEA, etc. About halfway between the city and the airport.
