Been wanting to check this place out for some time now, and finally took the chance to. Looks nice on the inside, though the "lower" level looks somewhat out of place and lacking the charm of the bar area. Wasn't as large as I was expecting, but there is enough space to get the job done. Tap list was extensive and is, as noted everywhere, heavily local. Visiting from out of town and want to try a big wad of local brews? This is your place.

Independent Brewing opened on Shady at Forbes in what used to be the sports bar Fannatics. They have a small rotating tap selection, mostly drawn from Western Pennsylvania. In my three visits, they've always had several beers that I've enjoyed. They are relatively new, and are now expanding to serve more food. There service staff still seems to be spread a little thin - friendly, but busy and I've sometimes had to go to the bar to order or get the bill - but otherwise very happy with this place. A little pricey for the 'Burgh - a little more like a Seattle or Portland joint.
