#312 Fat Heads Saloon from Pittsburgh, PA, United States
Score: 3.9 | Atmosphere 8 | Selection 9 | Value 8 | Service 6 | Overall 8 |
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.

#311 House of 1000 Beers from New Kensington, PA, United States
Score: 4.1 | Atmosphere 7 | Selection 10 | Value 7 | Service 9 | Overall 8 |
One of the best places for craft beers in Western PA. 1000+ bottles with a bargain mix six for 9.95. 46 drafts all of quality and some rarities.

The House pulls in beers of rarity and those not found elsewhere in Western PA. Note that some of these are 'gray market' which hurts the value. Russian River sours are readily available as well as other high profile breweries not found - Deschutes, Bruery, Firestone Walker, etc.

The service is great and often times bottle shares break out while talking with the owner and his staff.

A must visit for anyone within 60 miles. Be forewarned, it's easy to blow through cash at this establishment.

No food as of January 2013.
