They really built this place for the craft beer drinker in mind. First thereís a seat at the bar which might be 3 feet from the menís bathroom. Logistically this is awesome. The decor is nothing fancy but the beer is pretty solid. They had almost twenty different things on tap that range from meh! to pretty damn tasty. The food was fantastic. Fresh ingredients simply prepared and they have their menu available late. Plus theyíre open until 2am even on a Sunday which is pretty awesome. The service was first rate as well. Plus they always seem to be adding new and different kinds of beer. Iíll definitely be back when Iím in the area.

(Visited 02/2011): Rivertowne Pourhouse (pun!) is located in northeastern Monroeville on Center Rd, not too far off 376 and relatively close to the airport. They have ample parking around the building and across the street. The interior is laid out in different rooms with brewing equipment situated in the middle. The bar area offers a good number of seats, and there are high tables and restaurant tables elsewhere. The motif is not surprisingly Steelers- heavy, with wood and outdoorsy-type decor behind it all. There are boards listing available beers as well. Rivertowne has a fairly extensive draught list and offers paddles to sample them. On my visit there were 16 unique beers, ranging from lighter fare like Uter Brau and Light Tackle to stronger beers like Slhoppy Monster IIPA. Other options include Dark Helmet Schwarzbier, B.A. Babockus and Uncle Tomís Tumbling Pebble. On the whole the beers are average to above average. Service on a weekday lunch was good. The place was pretty empty and the server was attentive and relatively knowledgeable about the beers. Food at Rivertowne is solid. The menu leans toward seafood and they have a lot of subs/sandwiches too. Both my and my colleagueís lunches were enjoyable. Overall this place is a decent spot to hit outside the Pittsburgh area.

A neat sports bar just outside of Pittsburgh. A bit unusual in that the parking lot is located across the street from the pub, and thereís no crosswalk. Inside, lots of TVs and Steelers memorabilia. There are quite a lot of taps with a wide variety of styles. I was able to sample the IPA, altbier, pilsener, barleywine, pumpkin spice, and porter. The beers were mostly average to slightly-above average. Their menu is typical pub fare plus they have pizzas - although I was there during brunch hours so I got an omelette which was very tasty. Overall, although their beer is nothing too special, it was still a fun stop.

Stopped on Saturday afternoon during US Open. Happy hour prices since it during opening week. Great service at the bar and all the bartenders knew about the beers and were extremely helpful. Samplers available, and they even brought them two or three at a time so they were fresh. Fifteen beers on tap, plus a hand pump. Everything from golden ale to IPA to fruit beers to a BA Impy stout. With former John Harvards and Johnstown brewers doing up to 3 batches a day, this place looks promising. /-/-//-/-//-/-///-////-/- Disappointing visit on 5/14/08: place was going to be closed an hour after arrival for private function. We were still told we could eat. Seated and ignored for 10 minutes. Asked host to send someone over - ignored for another 10 minutes. We left after 20 minutes, having never been approached by wait staff. Still trying to contact them - but their email bounces back. Get your act together people.

Kind of strange. Parking lot is across a somewhat busy street --- requiring everyone to cross to get here. The interior is warm and somewhat rustic. They have a nice sized bar. The food is good and the prices and not bad for the portions. The beer is not good. They will have to improve. Two of the beers I tried literally tasted like cigarettes. The service was spotty. Some workers appeared downright lazy while others were great. Probably not worth the risk of crossing the street from the parking lot to get here.

Visited: 11-15-11 I always believe that most locals over hype their local haunts...well, this was another one of them. I went to Rivertown Pourhouse on a recommendation from a thread seen on BA. The amtosphere for the place was average, it was filled with mostly regular bar people, had roughly 25 spots around the bar, and many high top tables surrounding it. It was no different from any other local haunt and didnt scream anything of a BREW PUB. The quality of the beers were decent, slightly above average from the beers I tried, rated, and/or sampled. Some were decent, some were medicore...nothing really jumped out except for the pumpkin nitro ale (that I had at Fat Heads). The service was decent as the bartender and waitress were friendly and were attentive. The selection os different types of beers was great. They had 18 in house beers on tap and no guest taps. The food was mediocre as I ordered the Coconut Shrimp platter and was disappointed...the sides were all covered in cheese which is usually an indication of cheap or poorly cooked products and somewhat over priced. Overall, an average local haunt but there are better brew pubs and better beer bars in Pittsburgh and worth going to if you want to try someplace newer.

Accolades to the business owners of the Rivertowne. This place has some of the best brewpub brews I have ever tasted. Everything from the hay flavored light to the darkest most bitter imperial stouts, barrel aged too! If you are into one of a kind micro~micro brews, you better experience these concoctions. I saw a couple of steeltown locals putting on the buzz with the higher abv brews without knowing it. One of them went from talkative to belligerent in about three glasses. Pretty funny. The atmosphere is that of a comfy brand new sterile pub. Lots of seating at the bar and at the pedestal tables with barstools. You have your choice of affordable samplers. The impy stouts at this place rival the offensiveness of any beer in the top 25. Killer brews for a brewpub. Knocks yer socks off. The only thing that bugged me a little was the waitress possibly mixing up the brews when she brought over the samples. Another thing, sometimes I think they rename the same ales and re-serve them as a new brew. Right off the turnpike. Didnít have any food this time around but the guys next to me got some very attractive looking grub and they didnít say another word till it was all gone.

Somewhat dim and uninviting when you walk in, but at the same time quiet and relaxing. Service was good, but not great. They have probably 10-15 of there own beers on tap so decent selection and a few pleasant surpirses such as their pineapple ale. Food was good, and decently priced, decent portions as well. Overall, worth going to, but not if it means going way out of your way.

Stopped here on my way from Baltimore to Cleveland it is 1 minute off the turnpike which makes it a great place to take a break from driving. 15 beers on tap nothing too crazy but the 3 I had were all pretty solid. I also had a corned beef sandwich that was really good. Service was great and seating wasnít an issue on the Sunday I was there. All the brewing equipment is in the middle of the place which is cool to see. I was really glad I stopped here and next time Iím driving through I will stop by again.

A jaunt from downtown Pittsburgh, definitely out in the íburbs. Ample parking, but watch out crossing the street. A great number of house brews on tap - at least 14 - so there are two sampler flights. The beers are hit and miss, but generally decent. I had the Pacino Italian sandwich, and it was the bomb - nicely toasted. Feels like the average sportsbar-on-a-shoestring. Wait staff was friendly and prompt enough. Worth the drive from Pittsburgh? Yes. Worth a cab ride? No.
