What a great place!! 15 micro beers on tap that are good tasting brews, and great food. I recommended the pizza. They roll their own pizza dough there. I talked with the manager, Joe, great knowledge of beer food etc...I just wished I lived closer; I would probably be there every night!

The best brew pub I have ever been to. Variety and rotation are awesome. My ratings of their beers were consistently high. I think they blow away Ottoís in State College & the Selinsgrove brewpub which are rated higher by most.

After reading so many good things about this place we decided to check it out and are glad (and sad) we did. Glad because it lived up to everything everyone has said about the place: great beer, great food, great service. Sad because it isnít closer (Iíll take it in my neighborhood anyday). Itís about a 30 minute drive (thank God for GPS) so we have to be careful one of us can find the way back home, but it is definitely worth the trip. I will agree that with the vast beer selection it borders on overkill and after your fifth or sixth beer they can start to blend together. The IPA and the Melting Pot pale ale were very good as was the wit beer and the saison. The hefe was okay, nothing great and the kolsch was alright - not my favorite. Even if beer isnít your thing the food is another reason to go. Their menu is almost as vast as the beer selection. Page after page of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, wraps, dinners, pizza. You can get lost just looking through it. Started off with a bucket of mussels and half-bucket of whole wings. The wings were good but the mussels were excellent - especially if you like garlic. Ending up getting another bucket with our dinners. Their sandwiches are huge and come with either homemade fries or homemade chips - both a good also. The staff is very friendly, knowledegable and helpful. Very big and clean inside. As Iíve always dreamed of having my own brewpub this place is almost how I pictured it would be (maybe they can open another a little closer?). Definitely worth the trip and will be going back again.

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.

Went there with a large party for my grandfatherís 85th birthday. Service was good. The waiter really knew his stuff. Food was good, beer was really good and they had quite a nice selection. 18 of their house brews on tap, plus one real ale. Had the Steeler game on all the TVís in the bar so it wasnít hard to find out the score. Good atmosphere. Worth a trip if youíre in the area.

This place is, IMHO, the best overall brewpub in the Pittsburgh area. This is for several reasons. First, beer is fantastic. Great selection and execution. Not just a lot of beers that are average and a few standouts, but everything I had was tasty. Second, the service was excellent. I didnít sit at the bar since I had the family in tow, but the server did a great job. The only thing that kind of bummed me out was that she wasnít a huge beer fan, but she was pretty knowledgible (especially for only being there for a few weeks. This, though, was countered with a table visit from Andrew, one of the brewers at this fine establishment. He noticed me taking some notes for ratings and struck up a conversation. Heís definately a guy that cares about his esblishment. I was fortunate enough to be offered a sample of the barleywine (that wasnít on tap yet) straight from the conditioning tank (fantastic). It was good to see someone who cares that much about his patrons and will go the extra mile. Thirdly, food was very good. Not your standard menu. Man selections, from the normal fare to some dishes that are found rather infrequently. Everything was priced well. I also enjoyed the family-friendly atmosphere. Definately a place Iíd love to frequent.

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.

Easy to find. Convenient from Turnpike and 376. Parking is across street. Inside is fairly big inside. Rustic looking inside (lots of wood). Food was good. Big food selection. Service was friendly and great. Lots of "pittsburgh" decorations. And finally beer selection is great. Lots of homebrews to try. I was very impressed by the quality or their beers.

(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.

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.
