The wife and I were staying at a nice hotel in downtown Pittsburgh and Sharp Edge was the closest beer joint around. Not a lot of places open past 11pm on a Saturday night in the downtown area!
Lots of taps at Sharp Edge, 35+ and mostly Belgian: Duvel, Over the Edge (a Sharp exclusive), Karmeliet, Grimbergen, Chouffe, Lindemans, Silly Sour, Maredsous... plus a lot of Pittsburgh/PA brews and some special taps for Pittsburgh Beer Week.
Pricey all around, no doubt- nine and ten bucks for a lot of the drafts, and crazy stuff like $22 for a 2014 World Wide Stout. They did have a special on the Over the Edge "Triple IPA" so we didn't walk out of the joint too poor...
The menu was not updated but the bartender was knowledgeable and nice. They have beer to go (a bunch of bottles as you enter to your left) and growlers. We didn't try the food.
They close promptly at midnight, which is kind of a bummer but believe it or not most beer joints around downtown close even earlier.
Great? Definitely not. But it works in a pinch. I would go back if I'm staying in the area.

The food is excellent! I always try one of the burgers. They have different kinds of burgers like buffalo and elk. So far every burger I have had there has been amazing! The wings and appetizers are also good. A great/ vast selection of beer, but if you do go to Sharp Edge make sure you bring $$$. It can get expensive quick with the food and beer that you buy.
