Visited the brewery on my trip to PIttsburgh and had a couple beers in the upstairs dining room (the downstairs dining room looked more festive and lively). Our server did a bad job that night and the service was poor. The selection was not as good as I had hoped, but not a complete disaster. I had hoped for more variety in the selection of brewery beers available. Overall, it seemed like a nice place and I would be willing to go again, but this experience left something to be desired.

Wow, what ambiance! Big modern shiny brewtanks. Smaller area and less upscale than I expected. Nice copper plated bar. I was expecting to have some special seasonal Penn but they had mostly their common beers, which by the way, are not too common. Friendly people and a nice atmosphere. Back off the pesky murmur of East Ohio Street. I Had a big glass of Hefe Weizen, 22 oz for $4, what a deal. You can walk downstairs to the root cellar where you can observe the beer being lagered. Cool big chrome tanks with temperature gauges on them. Iíve got to check this out in the summer so I can enjoy the garden.

Oh my gosh, what a fun place. My boss and I came here on an autumnal August afternoon without a cloud in the sky and sat out in the biergarten. It was like being in Bavaria - cobblestone courtyard, old brick and stone buildings. My boss spent a few years playing minor league hockey in Germany and said as much. Without a doubt, one of the premiere lager breweries in the US - the hefe was killer, the Kaiser Pils was formidable, the Pils was really good. Didnít eat, but I had enough beer to forget my laptop computer. The staff stowed it back after Iíd gone halfway to the airport. Watch out for the locking bathroom door. Not a huge selection of beer, but a great, great beerhall. Two of the best hours that Iíve spent in a long time. Even though you can pick their beers up in the local watering holes, Iíd rate this as Essential for a Pitt trip. Across from the Heinz plant.

The State I have been told by all of the Pittsburgh owners/bartenders is a German beer one. Thatís the only set of styles you find here. Itís here, itís got an outdoor seating area. a place for parties. The beer is good,though not outstanding-- see my ratings. Fresh based on a good turnover, bottling. A couple of nice pilsners.Very friendly and patient staff. A few blocks away, the worst neighbourhood of Pittsburgh.

Very cool place. Takes on a old german beer hall look. A must visit during Oktoberfest. They have a couple of good beers and very good food. Not a huge selection to choose from but its quality. A worthy place to check out.

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 grandmaís 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. donít be shy about meeting new freinds because itís 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.

Very nice brewery in a historic building north of downtown. German fare and house brews, which are excellent. You should definitely check this place out.

Cool place. The owner gave us a tour of the brewery. I would like his job. Seasonal beers were the best. Peen Pilsner is kind of bla compared to the seasonal brews.

Great atmosphere, and the service is pretty good. The beer selection is lacking, and many taste similar to each other. To me, most lagers and pilsners taste unremarkably similar, and from what I remember, these two styles are all that are offered. The food is German, of course, which isnít my style, either. This place isnít for me.
