The beer here was so good it deserves 5 stars! The food was your typical brewery fare, but its the beer that made this place special. I had a beer that was soaked in a bourbon barrel...it is now one of my favorites! Can't wait to go back to Pennsylvania to go there again.

We saw it while strolling down Hamilton Mall + the menu was so interesting we just had to go in for a meal. It's a very cool-looking place (actually there are several different environments in the same location - upstairs, downstairs, outside...) and though it was pretty crowded, it didn't feel that way. Tables are well spaced with atmospheric lighting. Our waitress was exceedingly patient and accommodating; she explained the food clearly and figured out a way to give us a taste of one of their special desserts, a chocolate ice cream float with dark porter ale.

To start off, I tried one of their hoppy ales, which stacked up quite nicely against the competition. Our food was very good to excellent: Bavarian pretzels served with beer + cheese soup as a dip, a pulled pork sandwich with a well-balanced BBQ sauce, bratwursts with a red cabbage side that I really loved, and then the quirkiest and best - the pierogi casserole, which consists of layers of potatoes, sautéed onions, and gooey cheese. Yum. This is bar food taken up a few notches. The desserts were excellent also - the above-mentioned chocolate porter float, plus a fine bread pudding with bourbon sauce. We were stuffed and had 3 carryout trays. Great value. We would definitely go back.

For those beer lovers out there The BrewWorks can not be over looked. There are so many different beers to choose from, or get a sample tray of multiple beers (the blueberry is my favorite).
The dinners do not compare to the beer, above average bar food, don't expect anything to lavish.
Still a very good place to eat and drink!

Food was yummy, the server was a bit snappy, would not do seperate checks. Parking was hard to find in the city. Had to travel thru some blue light districts to get to this location.
