Visited on 11/25/07. This was our last stop on our trip to Pittsburgh.
The vibe of this place is part family restaurant, part sports bar. We entered the pub and immediately made our way to the horseshoe-shaped bar, where we sat. There were about 16 stools around the bar. The pub area featured some nice woodwork and lightly colored walls. Quite clean and spacious. Several TVs were broadcasting sporting events. There was a large mug club collection above the bar, so it looks like this place is a pretty happening spot for locals. They were not very busy while we were there, so the server was attentive and friendly.
The selection is pretty damn impressive for a brewpub! All in all, they had eighteen (18) taps and one cask selection. There was definitely something for everyone. We decided to get a sampler of eight brews, including two different Scotch ales, a blonde, dunkel, Roggenbier, IPA, wit/hefe blend, and a raspberry wheat. The server also threw in a sample of their pineapple beer, which was so sweet and pretty tasty as well. All of the beers were well done and fresh, and presented quite nicely.
Overall, the selection was extensive for a small brewpub, and the beers were all tasty. I thought $4.50 for a pint of house brew was a little pricey, but $7.95 for eight samples was right on. We didn't try the food, but we heard a few compliments from other patrons, so we'll be sure to get something to eat next time we're there.

Amazing Beer and Amazing Food...What else even needs to be said. You have to go to the Pourhouse. Always between 14-18 different Microbrewed beers made right there in the restaurant. If given a chance go sometime in the fall and get the Pumpkin Spice Beer, it's amazing. I'm a regular and the food and beer is what keeps me going back.

Arrived at Rivertowne and thought it was closed...no activitiy or signage screaming open and come drink. The quality of the food and beer was very good. The server was fine didnt really have much interest in shooting the breeze and did not have confident selection in food or beer. There is plenty of beer styles to choose from...you cant find somthing you got issues. I only had the pretzel and it was GREAT! I didnt think it was expensive. 14 tasters and a pretzel for $18 + tip. Overall it was a not bad and would recommend it.

We have been to Rivertowne Pourhouse several times. The atmosphere is very much like a typical sports bar. It does not particularly feel like a microbrewery, and it is very laid back. It is safe to say that families come out here. The food is good, we had a bucket of wings and a pizza. They both were very good. The pizza was simple, with a great tomato sauce that was uncomplicated and let the pepperoni shine.
Now for the beer. I have had the blueberry in the past, and it has been very good. They make a pumpkin in the fall that is great. This time around I had two. I had the peach, and it was pretty good, all in. It had a great peach smell and finished dry. On a whim, I tried the pineapple. They had a Hawaiian name the first night, and the next day they had renamed it. It was cloudy and very pineapple smelling. The taste, wow! It was amazing for a fruit beer. My husband had the IPA and really liked it. All of the beers have been very good.
