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.

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.

A fantastic experience! A German beerhall in Pittsburghís Northside. The food is outstanding and the atmosphere is great (especially during Oktoberfest). The beer selection is only Penn Brewing Beers.

Didnít have the food, but I believe that they make the best Weizen around (at least the ones that Iíve had). Really cool German feel with great long wooden tables and a cool outdoor area that is surrounded by the old buildings and rock walls. This is what a German micro brewery should be like.

Great German food. I like the layout of the place with all the old Pittsburgh beer signs and knick-knacks. I love Penn beers. They put out a great beer festival in June (PA Microbrewers) and they do an Oktoberfest. Great German feel to it with the long tables.

Good german food at a reasonable price. Aside from the Penn Pils, I generally like their beer.

Penn makes decent beers, and they go really well with the German food. Long tables give an authentic German kneipe feel. Certain nights provide entertainment, from Jamaican to oom-pah. Great food, above-average service, and fresh brews. Once a year, they host a microbrewer festival, too.
