I wanted to go to this classic place before it was gone. Very nice place. I love the entrance. It looks like an old German town. A cobblestone road leads you between a few old style buildings. The restaurant is pretty small but has a ton of character. German style bench seating and great German food. I just picked something on the menu randomly (I couldnít make out what a lot of it was) and was presently surprised. A huge piece of pork on a bed of sauerkraut and mashed potatoes. Wasnít the sausage I was thinking it would be but delicious. The place was empty so the service was fine. Iíve had their beers before but I can say their St Nikolaus bock is a smokey treat from the tap.

Nice pub vibe with flags hanging from the ceiling and a view overlooking the brewery. I didnít try the food but their beer was solid.

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.

A German-style brewery on the North Side. Itís not in a great area, although the immediate area surrounding the brewery is ok. It is located in a large brick building - there is a very quaint, European style outdoor patio and indoor seating. The first time I went there was a summer night and we sat outside on the patio. There was a musical group, complete with an accordian, and a group of elderly people who had gotten drunk by that point. It was a weird scene. I was also there during Oktoberfest, which was fun. Apparently they have a special tent with food and beer, but it wasnít open during the particular time of day I was there. They often have local bands that are pretty good. There is an indoor and outdoor beer station. The beers tend to be hit or miss. Out of their regulars, the pilsener and the pale ale are ok (there definitely can be variation) and the seasonals are usually pretty good. Sometimes they serve you water from a cooler which is very minerally. The food is also German style, but not very good in my opinion. Overall, this brewery has a lot of areas to improve in, especially in regards to their beer (and food), but itís still worth a stop. Definitely sit outside in the courtyard; itís beautiful.

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.

Neat space with a good selection on tap. It feels a bit touristy, but has massive potential. The service seemed pretty over it, but Iíd recommend stopping by if youíre in the area.

Probably the most underrated brewery, one of Pittsburghís 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 1800ís). Worth the visit and revisit!

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 thereís even a covered lot next to the brewery.$10 for a five beer sampler is way overpriced. Iíd only come back for the beer tics.
