In terms of beer selection if youíve been to one sharp edge youíve been to them all. Lots of Elgians but not much variety between the locations. The food is solid and the prices less so. This pub is located in an old house which adds a lot of ambience.

First visit the Friday before Xmas. Unfortunately hit a bad night ... just about everything I wanted to try was kicked. Waitress had to come back twice to say they had "just run out" of what my wife and I ordered. Ran into mtoast while there, and he explained that a lot of the Xmas beers were ordered to run out so thereíd be no overstock after Christmas. OK - Iím not a business person, so I donít get that. But Ommegang and Bellís Hopslam on tap íjust running outí as I ordered them??? Disappointing. I did get my Hopslam, though itís much more expensive in the bottle than on draft.
mtoast came through, though, on a nice price for a bottle of Allagash Grand Cru. The service was harried this evening, and I had to ask for a glass for my beer. When it came, I had to ask for another one since it was crusty. Maybe she was new.
Food was tasty - had the baked brie and the salmon pizza. Both prepared very nicely. The prices overall were a tad high, but not surprising for Allegheny Co. Iíll definitely try to go back on a less busy night, and during happy hour when beers are priced lower.
In all, it was great meeting mtoast and I enjoyed the food, but the beer scene was subpar due to the timing.

This is an old house converted to a restaurant bar. The place is clean, and has a nice local feel. I stopped in on a Wednesday night. All Belgian drafts and domestic bottles were a $1 off. I hung out in the "pub area." A few locals were nice enough to notice I was alone and invited me to drink with them. In fact, one was nice enough to buy me a beer. The tap selection is very nice, mostly Belgian, but with a few rotating regionals all of which were served in a proper glass. Bottles are nicely displayed in coolers that are clearly visible from the bar. Fellow RB member Mtoast is the manager, and he seems to locate rare beers on occasion. He was getting ready to release some Stone Vertical Epic 03 for sale! Too bad I missed that. But he was nice enough to take a break and talk about beer. I did not eat. I liked this location better than the Sharp Edge beer Emporium. It is not as loud and is more intimate. This is my type of place to drink beer when I am on the road. The only thing keeping me from giving this place a 20 is that the bar area allows smoking. However, it was not bad enough to distract from my enjoyment of the beer. I highly recommend this place.

When I visited: Late summer 2012. What I had: Duck-Rabbit Amber Ale (draught), Flying Dog El Dorado Single Hop IIPA (bottle), Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout (bottle), Jerk BBQ and Mild Wings, Double Dipper, Fish Eye Pinot Grigio for the wife. What I liked: unique atmosphere, like going to your grandparentsí house, private and comfortable booths, chalkboard tap list can be seen from almost anywhere in the bar, nice crowd, robust beer menu with many Belgians that I had never seen before, tasty pub grub, waitress was very capable in describing the beers on offer, was great to try Duck-Rabbit after hearing so much about them in Beer Advocate. What I disliked: American taps, while good, werenít as exciting as expected and the prices are a tad high. Still a first-rate beer bar though. Would I go back? Without question. Overall Rating: 90

Went during happy hour on a Friday. Walked in the door and was seated almost immediately. As I walk by the bar, I see that it is loaded up with at least 40 taps, most of which were Belgians, the others were high end domestics and imports. Along with their impressive draft selection, they had an even better bottle selection. For a person from WV, this place is heaven. I started off with a Piraat and was happy to see that it came in a Piraat tulip glass. My guest ordered a Lindemanís Frambois, and it also came in itís appropriate glass. This place goes above and beyond anything I have ever experienced. The service was a bit slow and the beer was way overpriced, but if you go at happy hour like I did, it isnít all that expensive. I made it out of there with two meals, two pints, and a sampler for under $60. Less than I expected but had I not went at happy hour, the damage would have been a lot greater.

Cool looking creekhouse not too far from the pittsburgh IKEA. Seating upstairs and down. Non smoking througout. Rather large menu with a Belgian slant, although not truly authentic belgian cuisine. The interesting menu items seemed fairly priced, but the portions fall short in my opinion. Many great Belgian beers on draft. Priced too high, but they have 1/2 all draft happy hour during the weekdays meaning lower than average draft prices during these times. Overall, a worthwhile stop in the pittsburgh area. Certainly the best belgian draft selection in pittsburgh.

Thanks to mtoast, this is one great place to rate beers. It is said this is the best place in the states to get Belgian beer on tap. You can get four 6oz drafts of even the most expensive Belgians for $14. Today I had Corsendonk, Chimay, Rodenbach and Cherish Kreik Lambic. You can also get four quality microbrews or imports for $10. In the micro/imports they had Allagash, Ayinger Braun, Anchor Steam, Unibrooke, etc. The list of beers on tap is beyond space to list here. Just go to the website and youíll see what I mean. Tho I didnít have any eats tonight, Iíve had them in the past and they are good, especially the wings with their many different flavors. The selection of bottles is unbelievably numerous. It was nifty that every draft I had, the bartender let me look at the label of the corresponding bottle so that I would know what I was in for! Speaking of the bartender, I found that he was the most beer informed bartender I have ever had the pleasure of speaking to. He knew all about the styles and was very patient with my beer rookiness. Overall this is one great place to go if your in the burgh.

Great Belgian selection but very pricey. Berst o go for happy hour when all belgians are half off. food is pretty solid too but again pricey. The Hop devil soup is just freaking amazing though.
