This was the second place that I went on my recent trip to Pittsburgh, PA.

You walk in and see a long narrow bar that stretches back to an open area with pool talbes and the like. The first thing that got my attention was this florecent glow from behind the bar. 6 cases FULL of over 200 different kinds of bottled beer. Wow. Then you look along the bar and notice about 30 more taps with a wide range of selection. Lots of cigar smokers, but not too overwhelming. I started with a Samual Smith's RIS, my girlfriend a sierra navada pale ale. Really cool place, wish I had more time there.

Stopped in hear after hitting the tiki lounge and was very impressed.
we walked in and it was tight in front of the door but opened up in the back so we found seats at the bar.

the selection was awesome great bottle list great taps to many to list.
the service was good they handed me a book with the beer list and knew everything on it and were able to steer me away from some of the crap.

the food was good all we got was wings the burger and fries but was good bar food.
good beer good food good service would go back anytime
