A neat modern brewery with big wide open area. It's like they took a big warehouse and slapped a bar in the middle, with brewing stuff way back behind it. Plenty of high top tables and benches, fairly clean and modern feeling. The bartenders were very friendly and knowledgeable, and helpful when ordering. They fill crowlers on spot which held up pretty well.
For beer selection, maybe 10-15 of their own beers, some great quality and some less so, and a cider, a mead, and I think a guest brewery also on tap. Not too busy, but we were there very early afternoon on a Thursday so not expecting it.

Love the vibe in this place. Unfortunately its tiny. Loved the local beef jerky and what this place is about, its just a bit small. But its 5 minutes from my house and they make great beer!

Great little hole-in-the-wall. The food compliments the beers nicely, and they have several interesting craft brews. Parking is on-street nearby.

One of the best breweries in the Pittsburgh region. The quality of the beer is quite high and the selection is amazing for such a small place. Incredible variety and the taps change quickly.

Cool little hide-away joint in a somewhat awkward bend in the road... Has an informal clubhouse feel, with a nicely shaded deck in the back, and outdoor patio seating in the front. Narrow barroom with L-shaped bar that seats about a dozen with tables on the back wall and counter seating on the front wall that is open to the patio. Nine beers on tap, I had The Barbarian and Hammer & Wedge, both excellent. Hitchhiker has a crowler machine and offered a great 3 crowlers for $26 deal. They have a somewhat limited floating menu, but I had the pulled pork tacos and they were exceptional. Great friendly service... highly recommend.

Really well done tap room. Simplistic rustic-dustrial. Good carpentry. Great tunes playing. Attentive staff who were friendly and helpful. Tasty beers. Great range from white coffee stout to dry hopped sour to single hop pale. Tasty pork tacos and great jerky. Will be back.
