Great brewery in Millvale just north of Pittsburgh. Good service, excellent beer, good selection and almost always a food truck. Lots of outdoor seating, but you must like dogs and kids. It's worth the trip for the beer though, regardless of your views on the crowd.

Packed when I went. I also didn't like how many babies were out with their parents on a Friday night and the dogs also could have done without being in a crowded bar. Outside area with food truck and covered patio is really cool.

Grist House was the first of seven breweries we visited in the Pittsburgh area in Feb 2017. I knew they had been rated the #1 brewery in Pittsburgh by Paste Magazine, so I was expecting a lot. The crowd on Saturday afternoon on a cold day was big. Standing room only and lines at the bar. We found a spot and got a flight. Great selection of beers, although none of them blew us away, all were decent. The best part of the visit was the 30 minute chat I had with the co-owner/brewer, Kyle Mientkiewicz. I'm not sure how or why, but we got into a long discussion about hop contracts! The Grist House web site says Kyle and Brian like to hang out and meet customers. It's really true!! That made this a memorable experience. It's so cool to see a place like this in an older neighborhood, bringing all shapes and sizes of people together to get good beer. A must stop for any beer lovers in the Pittsburgh area.

This place went from a quiet neighborhood hidden gem to one of the most hopping places in town! Complete with large outdoor seating area, occasional local bands, and an awesome crowd, Grist House offers a fine selection of craft brews! Each one seems to be better than the last!

The Grist House is located in Millvale, PA. The brewery is hidden behind a few taller buildings. There is indoor and outdoor seating. The exterior is a bit nondescript, but the interior feels warm and inviting. The staff was friendly and made us feel at home. It was a lively place with a good variety of beers, ciders, and non-alcoholic beverages. There was a food truck serving pizza during our visit. This is a diamond in the rough of Millvale.

Those bumpy ass metal stools from middleschool art class. some tasteless carpentry (hopefully they didn't actually hire someone to do that). Nice friendly staff. Good water cups. Employees. Food trucks. Kinda small bathrooms, given capacity. Decent range of styles to choose from. Im fine with dogs at a brewery. Nice concise menus. The beer was parful. Willing to revisit once more in the summer months to see if it's any more redeeming. Went back. Really tasty RIS. some

Went here on a Saturday night, it's definitely a locals hangout. There was a very loud band that made it hard to talk to anyone around you. This snobby middle-aged woman gave my friend a stare-down for a good 5 minutes because he was covered in tattoos. The beers are decent, but nothing above average accept the coffee porter. They did have a good food truck outside that made a tasty burger.

Poor lighting, no food, and everyone bringing their dogs is a serious nuisance. Selection of beers is good, but prices are way too high for that their beer actually is.

I cannot stress enough how much I was irritated with locals bringing their dogs in. Hey I'm not a dog lover, so maybe I'm biased, but people love their pets, I get that. It still has no place in a business that has nothing to do with pets of any kind.
There was a completely trashed couple beside me and my friend that kept yelling at their dog the entire time.
The fact that I'm even writing this is ridiculous.

I was hoping this would be a good brewery, but is just another run-of-the-mill bandwagon "craft" brewery. There's better in the burgh, pass.

Great atmosphere and setting, very nice staff, and even though it's just a tap room they still manage to offer a few bites to eat as well as occasionally having a food truck on site. Definitely check this place out, one of several great young breweries in the city.

Kind of a bare bones type of place in a very residential corner of Millvale (a neighborhood just outside of downtown Pittsburgh and Lawrenceville, in case you are not from around these here parts). Not too much in the way of design really. Some chalk art here and there and the bathrooms are painted nicely. But beyond that, not really much to look at. Only tried one beer on this first visit, but it was pretty good. Nothing that blew my mind, but something fairly well done. Overall selection seemed very standard, and dull, frankly: pale ale, amber, wheat beer, etc. I'll probably be back after the grand opening fervor calms down a bit and something more interesting becomes available.
