Stopped by this place after reading a review in the Post-Gazette when I was in town back in December. It used to be that the Sharpe Edge was really the only game in town on this side of Pittsburgh, but Bocktown seems like a great alternative.
As you walk in, the left hand side of the room before you get to the bar is taken up by a number of refrigerators. A beautiful selection! A lot of regional beers that surprised me. Some Flying Bison beers that I haven't seen since I lived in Buffalo, a big selection of Great Lakes etc. Lot of imports and some Belgians. Nice selection on tap with the beers listed on a large chalkboard above the bar. Unfortunately it was a little hard to see the board from where we were sitting.
We ordered a number of appetizers, all of which were quite good.
The waitress was competent and friendly. She didn't seem to mind the various friends that kept joining us as the night progressed. Chris Dilla, the owner (I believe) stopped by the table to talk to us.
Penguin game was on the large television, which was a nice treat since I
had not been able to see them very regularly in Florida.
Great to see quality beer creeping in to Western PA!
