Some of their beers are great, some leave a lot to be desired, and most are pretty middle of the road. Typically at least 10 on tap. Never had bad service or a bad meal.

Great spot for traditional German style beers native to Pennsylvania. Great Hefeweizen and Lagers. Would visit again, any time I'm in Pittsburgh.

I just made my way over there with a friend on a Friday night for small after dinner bites and brews. The place is mobbed with people on weekend nights and the service does suffer slightly, but not anything overly irritating. The server was also the bartender which was pretty odd. I think they were a bit under staffed. He was very courteous and generous with extra beer samples. I had the buffalo chicken perogies and my girl had the chili. Both were excellent. I had the ginger beer and she had the Penn Pilsner. The cool thing was that when I asked our server for a sample of the Berlin Wiessen he gave me a generous portion of that and also we sampled the Pendimoniom as well. The Berlin Weiss was pretty sour and tasted like champagne, so not the best choice. Their main beers are very light standard beer drinking beers, but they make interesting seasonal beers and what they call brewers choice beers. There is alot of German style beers which is typical of brewers from this area. I want to go back during the week to see if the service is a bit better when they are slower.
