D's is a must visit for beer lovers in Pittsburgh. They stock 900+ beers, and there beer cave alone is worth the trip. But while your there, you'd be doing yourself a grave injustice not to try a Chicago dog with a chili cheese fries - trust me, a small basket will be plenty! They have reasonable prices on their beers, up to 18 drafts that rotate regularly, and allow you to mix and match 6 packs to go from the beer cave, at a discounted price of the single bottles. Thy recently doubled in size, and the new room has a bunch of great art by a local artist, including a huge mural of the ultimate pub in heaven [with a tons of famous people throughout history for you to try to identify]. In the summer, they open the garage doors for a nice open air cafe feel. A big improvement over the originally very crowded space. They have also just expanded their menu to include pizza's and sandwiches - the spinach pizza we had was quite good, although it would have been better with feta cheese instead of ricotta.

The selection is extensive, but look carefully at the bottle dates. Stuff like Troegs Perpetual and Head Hunter has always been fresh, but the more exotic stuff, like Firestone Walker Double Jack, can be more than a year old. For the most part I think the prices are reasonable. The person below that said there is a 10% six pack discount is incorrect, the discount is $1 off all to go bottles. Standard stuff like Sierra Nevada and Stone is $3/bottle, so a good mix and match 6-pack can be $12. There are some egregious prices, like $39.95 for Older Viscosity and $14 for Wulver, but thankfully it doesn't appear that people are buying those. There are probably 20 draft lines and they are usually solid, but not overly exciting. The food is hotdogs, pizza and a few sandwiches and other miscellaneous items. It's not high quality stuff, but it's sufficient as long as you don't go in expecting a gourmet meal. Overall, I wish there were better options in the area but I spend plenty of time here.
Also, upstairs at The Loft there is a great happy hour with half-priced drafts from 6-8, which is the latest happy hour I've seen. The draft list is different and less extensive up there, but can sometimes have some really good stuff.
