This was the first place I stopped at on my recent trip to Pittsburgh, PA.
You walk in to a lofty feeling brick room with tables. Around the corner opens up to a bar room. Wow, look at that wall of handles... Lots of people, lots of them eating, tons of people around the bar. Roaring with conversation. Different brewerys' signs painted on the wall, on flags, and on plaques. Served right away, very busy bartender but understandable. I started out with a Delirium Tremons, my girlfriend had a Guinness and it came to $12.50 I believe. Moved on to an Arrogant Bastard and left after that one. Off to more places...

Fat Head's has the most consistently interesting tap list in the city. I can't really think of anything that would even be close. They seem to have really increased their own offerings, with around 10 of the draft lines for at least the last 6 months. Frequently top selections like IBUsive and Barrel-Aged Battleaxe are available, but it seems impossible to go wrong with a Fat Head's brew as long as it is a style you like. There are a bunch of styles that I have become interested in just by trying them here. They do a very good job of bringing in other interesting drafts too, and unlike a few of the competitors in and around the city they seem to do it within normal distribution channels. It can get crowded, and there isn't much room in the bar area. The food selection is extensive. It wouldn't be healthy to eat there too often, but you can't find better tasting bar food in my opinion.
