Visited on 11/34/07 during a weekend trip to Pittsburgh with my wife. It turned out that this was the closest place to our hotel in Wexford, so it was a must-stop. I'm glad we checked it out.

The brewpub was really easy to find since it was only a few short miles from our hotel. From the outside, this looked like quite a beautiful place with plenty of parking in the front lot. We entered the building and found it to have a large, spacious interior with seperate pub and restaurant areas. We sat at the bar, which was an extremely comfortable "L" shaped design with about 16 seats. There were also plenty of bar tables placed strategically around the area. The pub featured attractive lighting, hardwood floors, nice woodwork and a spacious floor plan. Very clean and comfortable place.

Our service was outstanding. While we were there at around noon, they weren't really busy in the pub at all. We received beer menus immediately and complimentary samples of about six of their beers. All of the samples looked fantastic and were very lightly carbonated and served at cellar temperature - just like a British pub. Server was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about all of the house beers and the restaurant.

The selection was quite impressive as well. They had more house brews that I had anticipated - 11 taps in all. The had the following beers on tap during our visit: Dortmunder pilsner, unfiltered wheat, blonde ale, dry stout, schwarzbier, red ale, English mild, IPA and a few others. There was definitely something for everyone. After sampling a few of their offerings, I went with the English mild, which turned out to be pretty solid.

We also got lunch during our visit. I had a chicken breast sandwich with some fresh fruit on the side, which was tasty and reasonable at $6.95.

Overall, we really enjoyed the atmosphere of this brewpub and they beer was all pretty tasty. I'd also like to point out that the staff was really friendly. On a side note, they sell 5L pig-shaped mini-barrels for around $22 plus a $20 deposit. They were really cool looking!

Went to this place Saturday night and was told there would be a 30 minute wait, which is very reasonable on a weekend. Went to the bar, very spacious, lots of open space and seats. Bartender was very knowledgable about the beer and quite friendly. A decent selection of beers very reasonably priced. Their cost for quality custom brews is equivalent to what other places would charge for macro's.

The food was excellent but our waitress was miserable. My lady friend was still eating and she came to try to grab the plate and then got a little disgusted when we said she was not finished. Overall though, I wouldn't hold the miserableness of one waitress against this place.

Good food, quality well-priced beers and a knowledgable bartender!

great atmosphere in the pub area! watched many games in the pub. 5 or 6 50 inch lcd hd tvs. during steeler games they have 2$ drafts when the steelers score a td for 5 minutes. otherwise 16 oz drafts are 3.75. great price!

quality of food and brews are great. ive had everything from burgers, wings, irish egg rolls, salads to prime cut ny strips. the hop rocket, IPA, and blackbird stout are my go to beers.

service is not that great which should be fixed!

great selection and food is great!!

hell i had all my buddies here after my moms wake! quality joint that has to work out the service issues.

This place is a mile from my house, and I worked there the first five months it was open. That was about two years ago.

This is a large place with two distinct areas: the three large dining rooms have the feel and the menu of a nice family steakhouse, sometimes right down to the crying babies. The pub area is going for the traditional Irish feel, to the point of being slightly kitschy. No crying babies, but it gets loud in its own right.

The food is of uniformly high quality- a bad meal would be a surprise. The standouts are the steaks, as you might expect. With just about every cut you have the choice to have the kitchen cook it for you, or grill it yourself, standing around a large grill where you can drink your beer and chat with your friends. For groups of guys, this is the way to go. Women seem to like to let the kitchen do it.

The service is great, but we know a lot of people there. My guess is you'll have a great experience even if it's your first time.

The beer is very good. I would say competent but not divinely inspired. The Hop Rocket, the IPA, the ESB and the Blackbird (Oatmeal) Stout are my usuals, and excellent. We've been trying to convince the brewery team of Jim and Jim to flex their muscles and try some creative high-grav or other more adventurous beer styles, but with such a big system and a large place, they've been reluctant. They haven't come out with a new beer in a while, they just cycle through their current ones. They're good, just don't expect a high turnover or anything off-the-wall crazy fantastic. (If you need something NA, the root beer is awesome.)

Lots of TV's in the pub means the place is popular when a game is on. Nice happy hour specials means the place is full of yuppies from the local office parks after work. So this place has a bit of everything for everyone, with enough space to fit them all comfortably. Definitely recommended- anyone should be able to find something they like here.

Being home for the holidays, this place is only about a 20-25 minute drive so I figured I'd go give it a try later on a Wednesday night. We arrived and had a seat at the bar. It was a bit after 10pm on a Wednesday and the place was nearly deserted apart from a few folks seated at the bar. The entire bar and surrounding seating area was Irish Pub themed with dark wood and a dimly lit atmosphere. The service was good, there was one lone young lady working the bar and she seemed friendly and helpful. There were 10 selections on-tap and my girlfriend and I split a sampler of all of them. They were all tasty and of good quality. The trend I noticed in H&H's brews are that they are a bit on the mild side but well balanced and of high quality. I particularly enjoyed the IPA, Barleywine, and the DIS (I can't remember the actual names). I'm usually not a huge fan of DIS but this one was full flavored with a good roasty aroma. We did not eat because the kitchen had closed at 10:00 but I have heard good things about their steaks and appetizers. The 10 beer sampler was only $10 so that was certainly reasonable but the growlers cost $10 to fill. Thats not outrageous by any means but after checking out the website, I was under the impression that it only cost $6 or $7 but was informed that those prices only applied when using their growlers and I had brought two from home and had them filled already. Also I think the deal may only be good on a certain day as well. In any case, all indicators pointed toward a quality establishment. Although I heard the place was experiencing some financial difficulties. Possibly the fact that there was no one in the place was not a coincidence; I'm not sure. But I enjoyed my visit and I'd urge anyone to go check it out and support a quality beer location. Its definitely a fairly upscale place so use this opportunity to take your significant other out for that nice, romantic dinner they've been itching for and experience some good craft brew at the same time. Its Win/Win!

* I revisited this place on a Friday night a couple weeks later and had a great time. The food was very good the beer was of course quality. The service was also exceptional. In fact the gentleman working the bar was more than courteous and very friendly. We were seated in the pub and the crowd seemed to be mixed but generally younger and the overall atmosphere was great. I enjoy this place more and more every time I visit.

We dropped our son off at college in Pittsburgh after a weekend visit and headed back to the Cleveland area. Before we left home we had planned a visit to a local Brew Pub – Hereford Hops in Cranberry Township, PA, for out return trip. We read the reviews on before we left home and we were looking forward to sampling some of their wares.

We found the place quite easily right off the highway, on the right hand side, set back from the road, with the Cranberry water tower looming in the background up the hill. It’s a very impressive building with a very large parking lot. Upon entering we headed to the bar. It was attractively decorated in the Irish Pub style with ample seating. We took two stools at the corner of the bar and were greeted promptly by the server. It was about 6:30 on a Saturday evening and we had our choice of seats. It wasn’t long, though, till the bar area was filled with people waiting to be seated in the dining room.

I ordered the sampler that included 6 of their standard selections plus 4 seasonal offerings. We tested each one as we read from the cards that describe each offering. The Dortmunder, a seasonal, and one of my favorites, was described as having low level malt sweetness, medium hop bitterness and low hop flavor and aroma – 4.6.abv. We just returned from Germany a few weeks earlier and this brew reminded me of some of the wonderful beers I had enjoyed in Deutschland.

The sampler included a wide variety of beers including Stouts, an Irish Red, Ales, a Wheat beer, etc. and cost $1.00 per 3 oz. glass, or $10.00 in total. We enjoyed them all with the exception of the White Tail Ale – a blonde ale, their best seller. Obviously this is a popular beer for them, but it reminded us of a mass produced domestic beer such as a Budweiser – too light for our liking. My favorite was the Cleary Red an Irish Red described as having caramel malt, medium bitterness, light hop flavor, no hop aroma – 3.9 abv. Maura’s favorite was a real surprise to me, she preferred the Cashel Bay Stout with roasted barley, hops bitterness, no hops flavor or aroma. This stout was real smooth, delicate and would make a nice brew for sipping over the course of an evening.

We ordered an appetizer, the imitation “Bloomin Onion” and we enjoyed it, although I would have liked more of the dip served along with the onion. We then ordered from the Pub menu, a grilled steak salad, a club sandwich and a Diet Coke. The food was Ok and our check totaled about $41.00 plus tip.

On our way out I stopped and bought one of their souvenir mugs, a substantial piece of glass with their logo in green for $9.00. This will make a nice addition to my collection.

To sum up our experience I’d say that the beer was very good, service was excellent, the food adequate and the prices moderate. The atmosphere would be much more to my liking at a less busy time. We went during what is probably their busiest time and the bar area was filled with patrons, including many families with young children waiting to be seated in the dining area. At this time the establishment was more like a very nice restaurant that made their own beer… and you could wait for your table in the bar. Rather than a brew pub that had a restaurant.

Overall, it was worth the trip, but next time we'll go at a time when it isn't as busy.

This is the easiest place in the world to find. If traveling on I-79 its the first establishment (other than the Marriot) off of the Cranberry/Mars Exit (route 228). It stands alone and is near Olive Garden and Smokey Bones. The place is huge. Complete with a pub and several separate dining rooms.

We sat in the Pub area which is beautiful. Dimly lit and lots of dark wood and has a pretty authentic Irish Pub feel to it. Posters and pictures of different things around Ireland are everywhere and there is even a small area to eat that resembles a reading nook. The brewing area can be seen through glass windows in the pub section. The dining rooms are really classy but more run of the mill than the pub area. Big grilling area where you can make your own steaks are located in the dining section.

They had 9 of their brews on tap and I was able to try four of them. The ones I tried were the dry stout, schwarzbier, the wheat, and the irish red. All were decent for the style taste-wise and very drinkable. They seemed to have a common theme of being a bit thin but still quite enjoyable. Drafts run from about $4-$5.50.

Our server was excellent. He was friendly and new about the beers the brewpub had to offer. The food was excellent but quite expensive. Great selection of seafood and steaks. Luckily they offer a pub menu with more affordable selections that are still good. The whitetail soup and the crab bisque were amazing.

Overall this is a pretty upscale place with an expensive menu. Food is good and my parents loved it. I will be back again.

Hereford & Hops is a steakhouse and brewpub. It's fairly upscale, but still comfortable. The decor has a decidedly Irish theme--the bar is offset from the rest of the restaurant and looks very much like an Irish pub.

My co-workers and I were very impressed with the food. Two of us ordered the filet mignon, while another co-worker ordered the prime rib. In each case, the steaks were cooked to spec, and were tender and well-seasoned. Mine came with a baked sweet potato, which was a welcome break from the traditional baked potato or french fries.

The beers were solid. I drank a Hop Rocket and a Schwarzbier. One co-worker ordered a Whitetail Ale, while another had a root beer. I enjoyed the Hop Rocket. It was a pretty standard IPA. I could have stood it to have a more pronounced hop flavor, but I am admittedly a hophead, so others would probably find it strong enough. I also really enjoyed the Schwarzbier. It was smooth, with a roasted malt flavor that didn't overwhelm. I picked up a growler for some friends back home, as well as a growler of the Irish red.

A note about growlers. H & H will fill your growler and it's reasonably cheap--I think I paid $9.95. They also sell their own growlers, the kind with the flip-top lids. These are $17.95 plus $9.95 for the beer. It was a little more than I expected, but I should have asked about the growler price before I ordered it.

Overall, H & H was an enjoyable experience. The food was excellent and deserves high marks. The beer didn't blow me away, but it was all solid and well crafted. I'd give the food an A and the beer a strong B+.

I frequent this place often, as it is right outside the entrance to the office park I work at. The first thing that grabs you is the smell of the steaks cooking when you approach. We usually hit happy hour, which includes 2 dollar pints and ½ off appetizers. The bar is alienated from the rest of the restaurant, but it is quite roomy. They also provide free chips which are made in house, and very tasty. I usually opt for the Cashel Bay Stout, unless the Blackbird Stout (oatmeal) is available, which unfortunately doesn’t seem to be most of the time. They also have description of each beer at the bar on cards which include specific gravity, IBU, ABV, and ABW.

As far as the food goes, I would not recommend the pizza, it isn’t very good. Stick to the steaks, appetizes or sandwiches. They have a cook your own steak thing, which is cool if you are into that. Personally, I prefer to let the cooks take care of mine. The steaks are good and the prices aren’t too bad. Check their website for specials, they have some really good ones. The steak and crabcakes for 9.95 on Wednesdays is an awesome price. You can fill your growler on Thursdays for 6.95, which is less than ½ the usual price. They have 2 kinds of growlers, one is a party pig, which is in the shape of a piggy bank.

The beer is good and happy hour is usually pretty lively. In the summer there is outdoor dining available. The crowd is very laid back, mostly consisting of local office workers, especially during happy hour. Even though it is the only show in town, if you are looking for a brewpub, it is very well executed and worth the trip.

The wife and I stopped here Saturday night about 9:00. We called first,around 7:00 the girl that answered the phone was polite and informative.They serve food untill 11:00,there was a 45 minute wait at 7:00,we came at 9:00 with hardly no wait at all.
The place was very large,there was a nice gift shop,with some cool t-shirts. A cooler with aging steakes,a one with assorted party pigs to go,not a bad deal either $22.95 plus a $20.00 deposit.
The was an indoor pub at the entrance "Cleary's Pub" an irish style pub,a irish themed bar,with pitcures,old bottles,ect.from Ireland.
A big L-shaped bar,11 taps,well stocked liquor,the bottles hanging upsidedown with dispensers on them,looked very neat.There was booths and tables and chairs,a very good sized place. At the back of the bar was the brewery,encased in glass inside and outside,very cool.There also was an Irish style band playing at the bar.

There was several seperate dining areas,some with private parties.The menu had sandwiches,burgers,salads,pasta,lots of seafood.
The main attraction was the steaks.You could grill your own steaks!
The had 3 large indoor charcoal grills,really cool.You even get to pick out your own steak and potato. The was a chef ther to help you cook your steak,all the seasonings were at the grill.The prices of the steaks was very reasonable,it was about 2 dollars cheaper if yoy grilled your steak,which I recommend it was very fun.

There was about 10 different beers to choose from.I had the Octoberfest,Schwarzbier,and the IPA.I would like to go back and try them all sometime.Some of these beers won medals at the GABF and the World beer cup. The beers I tried were true to style,very good,truly quality beers.I really enjoyed the beers.I will review the beers on my profile,check it out.

This was a great experience,highly recommended.There was a lot to take in on one trip.Would really like to go back again and bring some friends next time.

I’ve been listening to Craft Beer Radio (podcast) out of Pittsburgh, PA and they speak often of Hereford & Hops - a fairly new restaurant (to this area) where the highlights are microbrewed beers and grilling your own steak.

We arrived late on Wednesday night, so the place wasn’t very crowded, and the host offered a quick tour of the facility. The pub area was decorated with dark woods and an Irish theme; the tanks wee displayed nicely in the back. It was spacious, and included a large non-smoking section and a little “library” area. Had we chosen to eat there, a selection of sandwiches and pizza, as well as the 50-cent taco bar, were available.

We ate in the restaurant section where the menu included many cuts of steak which we were able to choose and grill (in the grill room) on our own. I chose to cook the 16 oz New York Strip which, for $12.95 each, we could share along with the salad and baked potato bar.

I was very pleased by the level of service. When the salad bar was refreshed with hot rolls, the host made a special trip to our table to offer them - I wouldn’t have chosen one myself, but I was glad he offered because they were really good! - herbed with carmelized onion.

In the grill room, as his only customers, Adam paid good attention to us and our steak. I noticed bagpipes in the corner and sure enough, Adam is a piper! He offered to play, and it was really enjoyable. He plays in a band, and could talk about the celtic band scene with us. His music was just a treat!

But we were there primarily for the beers, so I better talk about them! The menu at Hereford & Hops states they always have 10 beers on tap (there are approximately 20 listed), but our server only named off 9, so I hope we didn’t miss annything! The pints were reasonably priced at $3.75 and the 4 oz sample glasses were $1.00.

Carolyn started with two sample glasses - disappointingly, they were those tall mug-style glasses, so it was hard to determine aroma. She was glad she didn’t judge the Hop Rocket (American Amber Ale) based on her little sample. When she purchased the pint, a real notice in the nice hop aroma was noted, and with full swallows, found satisfaction in the good hop finish. Hop Rocket is not going to impress the general “hop-head”, but it is an enjoyable amber.

C's second sample was Get Down Brown (American Brown Ale). This brown had a medium body with hints of chocolate. It was maltier than I cared for that night, and had a low hop characteristic, which is why I went with the Hop Rocket pint.

Meanwhile, I tried two pints. The first was the Schwarzbier. It was more roasty than expected for this style, and while not true to style it is an easy drinking and flavorful beer It won a gold medal at the ‘04 WBC and bronze at the ‘05 GABF.

As fate would have it, we ended by sharing a pint of the best beer of the night! St. Edmund’s Porter came to the table with a creamy foam head (didn’t last very long…), but lacked the full roastiness of a good porter in the aroma. Luckily, it was all there in the taste!

All in all a very pleasant experience. Not a true "brew pub" more of a restaurant with a brewery. Maybe the pub area would give you more of that pub feel. I am not the biggest eating steak out kind of guy but the cook your own experiecne was fun and the quality was wonderful. That in combination with decent brews makes this place a nice addition to this growing Pittsburgh area community.

I finally made my voyage up north of the Burgh to visit this relatively brand spankin' new brewpub, and I'm damn glad I did. I stumbled onto a relatively slow lunch day it happens especially when a new restaurant hasn't completely found their niche' yet. Place is heavy on the Irish theme not just decor but the friggin sound system is blaring out constant "traditional" Irish tunes it actually gives the place a corny feel rather than a hey this is an Irish pub atmosphere and I know the staff is weighing in on the straight out annoyance of this subject, but anywho it will change I have faith. I was greeted by a pair of Mikes, one a server the other a bartender both younger cats like myself who have an interest in craft brews the server more so than the bartender. However I couldn't have asked for a more personable experience got a tour from the brewmaster along with some quality beer convo. After spending around 2.5 hours sampling the 10 yes 10 different brews in the sampler I realized that they serve their beers at a great temperature around 45 degrees from the serving tanks and that the brewer has a way with lagers and lighter usually uninteresting styles. No opportunity to eat here I was to busy sampling and jawing with the staff, but in the end I was offered a ride to the nearby 3 Sons and Dogs by Mike the server who was also trying to load up on some craft beers so thanks to Mike for being a gracious host to this craft beer seeker. All in all a great experience that I would love to share with some family and friends, and next time I'm grilling my own steak...yep they have grill your own stations talk about pimp. Beer to go...of course now do you want a growler or a Party Pig it's your call. To reinforce the fact they have steak your greeted with a clear cooler showing of some of their very prime cuts of meat. Good luck to this establishment I will try to spread the word alot of other larger chains are focused in this area between Moon and Cranberry so there's some competition, with the quality and consistent beers and great steaks this place will find it's niche'.

Located in a large building that is part of a food "mall" located on Rt. 228, just east of the Rt. 79 and Turnpike in Cranberry.

I went straight to the pub area and met a couple of friends. They left me a seat right in front of the taps...they know me so well! The bar was mostly full and the patrons seemed to be quite interested in the many beer opportunities. It took me quite a while to flag down a bartender, maybe I was too hidden behind the taps.

I chose a six piece sampler. Of the samples, I enjoyed their Hop Rocket the most. A nice, hoppy aromatic brew. I also had the Whitetail Ale, Maibock, American Wheat, Cleary Red and Dark Lager (I can't remember the real name). All were tasty. They also serve a small selection of commercial beers.

For food, I ordered their Steak Sandwich with fries. A good choice, I thought. Their fries were particularly tasty.

Before we left, we saw ourselves around the place and noticed a cooler out front with Party Pigs full of their craft beers available for sale. The restaurant area was interesting, especially the grill areas where you can cook your own steak.

Overall, I enjoyed their beers but the service was a little slow. Hopefully it was just a weeknight lull.

Several minutes north of Pittsburgh. Part of a mall of restaurants based on different themes. The owner is the original brewmaster here. The staff are merely employees and are like any other restaurant. Roomy, with a dark area before the bar, pleasant enough. Only serve their beer, which is fresh, and very much on the malty side. Recently they have picked up on the hoppy trends, and offer an ESB whose sales have been significant. German beer influence, but no pilsners.Nice all around place with something to satisfy everyone.

In a nice new building on route 228 just east of the turnpike interchange. It opened last week sometime, and when we arrived at 6:00 on Monday evening, the large parking lot was over half full. We were concerned about a wait, but to our surprise we were seated promptly. I was told it seats over 400. Our server was very friendly, courteous, and had some knowledge of craft beer and the styles. That is always a plus in my book. They sell small samples for 1.00 each, so we ordered a sample of all 10 beers currently on tap. All were well brewed, and the only minor flaw I noted in any of them was that the Stout had a watery mouthfeel. Hopefully, that can be corrected in future batches. There is a separate pub area with a separate menu from the main restaurant, but I was told you can request a pub menu in the dining room. Either seating choice allows you to grill your own steak if you choose. The dining room menu is more formal and pricey, with steaks, pasta, etc. The pub menu has sandwiches and pizza, plus the steaks. The quality of the food was very good - we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. My impression on the prices is mixed - my 20 oz. sirloin was 21.95 with potato and salad bar - I think that was a reasonable price. My wife ordered the 5 cheese pasta, which was also very good, though the portion was a bit small. Also, we got the cheddar ale soup, which was delicious, but at 3.95 a cup our cups weren't even filled. All that being said, I had a positive experience and definitely plan to return.
