A Pittsburgh beer staple - this is the original Fat Heads and the production brewery is located outside of Cleveland, OH. A nice selection of 41 taps all of which are craft and 10 or so are reserved for Fat Heads brews. Usually there is a sour and a barrel aged beer in the lineup and the value for the draft beer is top notch.
If you plan on going on a weekend night, be prepared for a wait of at least an hour for a table along with cramped space by the thin, long bar. Service is spotty. The bartenders either know quite a bit about the beer or are completely clueless. Samples are given and the bar will provide growlers. There is a decent bottle shop upstairs with Fat Heads gear and fresh Head Hunter.
This is probably the place most folks think of when they come to Pittsburgh. It's solid and the draft list is usually top notch. Service leaves a bit to be desired and it can get quite busy on the weekends.
