4.15/5  rDev -4.4%

Ran into this place randomly while in Pittsburgh to see the Pens and opted to hang out for a while prior to one of the games. Fathead's is a slightly upscale beer bar which seems to attract sports in mass numbers. The mildly upscale atmosphere combined strangely with the sports fans though, and I didn't find the atmosphere that stellar.

The bar has a strong number of taps for a beer bar including a number of house specials, and they seem to cut a wide geographical swathe including beers that I was surprised to see outside of MI such as Arcadia's Hop Rocket. They also have some treats on tap though (i.e.: Stone Imperial Stout). Quality on the brews I tried seemed fine, obviously clean tap lines and quickly rotating product.

The place lives and dies for me based on its food though, and that's flat out exceptional. The first time I went I only had brews, the second and all subsequent times I've had stuff off the menu though and it's insane. Something like 30 sandwiches and burgers are available with toppings that are impossible to find locally. Burgers topped with eggs, pierogies, Arrogant Bastard batter dipped onion rings and the like. Appetizer baskets are huge too and are a hell of a value...though they're way too much for two people to split with a meal...think 3 hour, game length munchies and you'll be on target. As far as I'm concerned this is the place to be in Pittsburgh; great food, great beers, fair prices...what's not to love?
