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!
This is my go to place for a dinner in Pittsburg. Food there is expelently priced for how good it is. First time there was a pair of appropriately dressed beer chugging gents playing the squeeze-box and stand-up bass. Seating can be a bit of a problem if you have a handicapped person there; my grandmad is exactly in the best condition for bench seating. Other than that one small problem, this is a great restaurant, with great german style beer. I think at any one point in the year my dad will have at least two cases of their beer in the basement.
I love Penn Weizen. I repeat, I LOVE Penn Weizen. I have bought 4 kegs of it. I have thrown two Oktoberfests with it. It is amazing. I starting this love of all Penn products back in 1997 in college. I just wish it would stay in the historical site it is in. I also hope the quality does not diminish in it’s new location.

great beers in a really cool building. a big German beer hall in Pittstown. The food is German Beer Hall fare, but done quite well ( not as good as my grandma’s or moms ) the Beers are done according to the german purity law. all were done well. I was there for Oktoberfest when it was really packed which added to the fun. lots of singing, dancing and prosit!!!! A very fun place. don’t be shy about meeting new freinds because it’s beer hall seating on long picnic style tables. it makes for good arm in arm toasts!!!!!
now trying to navigate the horrible city planning called " roads" is a whole other story. it took us an hour to get across bridges and down twenty wrong turns to find the place. well worth it though.
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.
Nice place. Right near downtown with a good selection of beer. I was there in spring for training, and they had a picnic outside with brats, sausage, dogs, sauerkraut and BEER! Beer is good, ask for the "Rusty Trombone". Seasonal and this was the last keg. Friendly people and an overall good time.
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.
