When you can't get to Munich and want to feel like you are, visit the Hofbrauhaus in Pittsburgh. My family visited last weekend and we were all very pleased with the beer, food and service. The beer is brewed
onsite and licensed by the original Haus in Munich. I had the Marzen and Hefewiezen. Both were very fresh and tasty. Most of us had the bratwurst platte with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes. The sauerkraut was the best I have ever had. One of our party had the schnitzel, which he really enjoyed. The atmosphere is terrific with the look of a Bavarian beer hall and German music playing. Although too cold to be outside, this place has a veranda and an outdoor beer garden that overlooks the river. A real gem!

Follow-up - Just had lunch on 5/20/17. Dunkel was great and the food was too! . . . weisswurst . . . schnitzel . . . German potato salad . . . pretzels . . . The atmosphere is terrific with the music . . . everyone seems so happy here! Will come back again and again and again!

Been many times and don't think I've had a bad night here. If you go on Thur-Sat night its like a madhouse, but it's all first come first serve in the beer hall area and their bar does a pretty good job getting everyone drinks. I like that they have a regular dining area always open in case you aren't looking for a dance on the tables type night. The selection is limited to the 3-5 beers they have on tap at the moment, but most are pretty good!

This place is great. Everyone is dressed in classic German attire and there is almost always a band on stage playing folk music. It is encouraged to stand on the tables and dance. The biergarten itself makes this place amazing. It is a huge outdoor area with picnic tables along the river front. All the food I have had has been really good as well. The only downfall is that sometimes the servers seem a little too busy to help you and that they don't offer a wide variety of brews.

Never been to germany but German bear Garten is what they are going for. Loud, big portions and passable German beer.
