This place is cool. Nice open warehouse atmosphere that reminds me a bit of Victory. Large wooden ceiling long wooden bar, tanks visible in the other room through big sheets of glass. Quality of the beers here is very good in general and the selection nearly blew me away, since I only have 3 or 4 of this breweries bottled beers available to me on a regular basis and at least 10+ beers were available on tap during my visit. Service was also very good, and the bartender talked shop with me for quite some time, and offered up some free samples. The "mead" here is not really a mead, and it was pretty lame, but the cask ESB was super British in style, and the barleywine really made me a believer! I had some veggie chili here that was quite good, and the prices were definately reasonable. A totally awesome place to fill up on beer on your wasy to Pittsburgh. Troegs is just a 20 minute walk away as well, an added bonus!

ABC is great. Their beer selection is vast and the quality is right where you want it to be, but their food can't be praised enough. The menu is unique and full of fun things to try and it delivers once you've got it. I've had the rockfish tacos and I've tried the french dip (which is braised in their Jolly Scot Ale) and they were both wonderful. Good place to go, can't wait to go back.
