This is a great place to go sample beers. And... their wings special during happy hour is great! They have beers on tap that nobody else has. I avoided this place because of the traffic and now I regret that I did. I had a big glass of Rogue Imperial Stout for $5. I also got to taste 5 other beers for a minimum charge. Lisa was really helpful in enlightening me about the beer styles and I would not hesitate to return for a future visit. My rating for selection is based on their taps. Very pleasant and the food is said to be great. Nice atmosphere. Food is really southwest special, great happy hour prices, especially the wings..

If you are a newbie when it comes to microbrews, this is the place to go... Happy Hour is great at this Robinson location, Half price brews and a good selection that is always changing gives you a great opportunity to try new things. Happy hour brings in a nice business crowd and a few college kids with great taste. The Food is good but I usually would only nibble on chips with my beer...
Excellent place to sample different beers. Nice selection of IPA’s, including Troegs Scratch 43, and Mouflan Barley Wine, among others. In all, 24 taps they rotate about half of them, so worth stopping in at least once a week. They have a nice menu with good food. I suggest hitting their happy hour specials (daily) for half off all drafts. Service is informative and helpful.
delisious food, great beer list, terrific tequila, what more could you want. They always seem to have at least a couple of local brews on tap too. great!

My restaurant of choice in Pittsburgh. Their bleu cheese is like no other and I have, on occassion, gone in and just bought a container of bleu cheese to go to eat with celery. They have a good selection of micro brews in bottles to go (for 12.00) but it only includes a certain panel. The good stuff (the rares and seasonals) must be purchased separately. I go there at least 5 times a month for wings. Awesome.
The food is Tex-Mex. The menu is interesting and a good part of it caters to health conscious folk. Small, tube televisions scattered about the place. The theme is Aztec, Southwestern and "left-of-center cool." The tap selection is diverse and has some top tier stuff (i.e. Southern Tier Imperial Choklat, DFH 90 Minute IPA, Stone Ruination, etc.) The service was great and I was provided with 3 oz. free samples of the beers I was unfamiliar with. Really nice place!
Always a suprise there. They seem to have a nice rotating beer selection with at least a couple of nice beers on tap. Service is always good. The bartenders are pretty knowledgable about the beers on tap. Free chips and salsa at the bar and some good burritos fromt the menu. Pretty good place.
One of my locals, always nice and dark, appreciated it more before they went non smoking (as of 3/1/08), but I am a damn dirty smoker, so... yeah. Always a nice selection of IPA, food is above average. Service can be spotty on busy nights, but for the most part pretty good.

So far, the Robinson location had the best beer selection. I went the week after New Years and they still had several seasonals left like Christmas beers and barleywines. Several selections from Stone, Dogfish Head, Rogue, Anchor, Troegs, Stoudts, some Belgian imports, and other PA micros. Prices for draught and bottles is slightly high, but hard to find in other area bars. Mad Mex is one of the better Mexican restaurant chains in this area and I really like the food. Located in the shopping areas, near the mall, IKEA, etc. About halfway between the city and the airport.
Kinda stashed away in the middle of an office-block. I stopped by on a Sunday, and had a hard time telling if they were open. Cool artsy decor, super clean. Good chow. Lots of northeastern regional beers - so if you’re from some other region, it’s a good stop in a state where you can only buy beer by the case. You can buy a sixpack to-go for $12, so I salted some back for the Ohio leg of my trip. Sunday was dead, but Emily the barkeep was a pro. Off Route 60 on the way to the Pitt airport.
