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.

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.

Cool place which my girl (a non-drinker) likes the best. Situated up on a hill in a very neat old building with a cool cobblestone entrance way (Cobblestones improved my rating from a 65 to 68). It is never crowded, generally there are too few people there! Cool, long wooden tables accompanied with wooden benches which are often times difficult to get in and out of. Good, though over priced food, and yer standard Penn Brewery beers (Weizen is a good summer treat). Worth a trip every now and then.

Cool old brick building with nice courtyard area nestled in an old industrial area of the city along the Allegheny river. Decent German food (though not the best) and of course Penn beers. IMO the Nikolaus bock is the best by far with Oktoberfest right behind. The rest are ok, but nothing special. If you are there around Oktoberfest time beware. This place gets insane and way overcrowded. Beer is sold then in half gallons and there are so many people it will take you over 30 min to get to the bathroom and back again. One of those things worth experiencing in college, but isn’t overly fun due to the vast amount of people. Other than that, the place is worth normally stopping by if you are in the area, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to see it.

This place looks really cool with the old brick buildings on top of a hill overlooking other old brick buildings. It has German style bench seating and reminded me very much so of a miniature beer hall. The menu was composed of common German fare and it was excellent, though a bit pricey. Their beer isn’t great but it’s decent, my favorite is the Penn Weizen. The place was extremely busy, but the service was still great. This is definitely a place that I will be coming back to.

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.
