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.

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.
