@drew funnily enough I was just saying the same thing about when I used to drink. Of course that was over a decade ago before the craft brew thing took off.

If you like craft beer and/or any number of specialty beers from around the country and world, 2 recommendations to offer – (1) the Beerhive in the Strip, roughly 22nd St and Penn Avenue, (2) Barley and Hops, located in the South Park Shops on Route 88 in Bethel Park (very close to South Park).

I’ve wondered how the Beerhive was, I’ll have to check it out, tomorrow. Which of those two places do you like best?

The Beerhive sounds interesting and level when coming from Lawrenceville (I hate hills). I’ll have to check it out tomorrow evening.

they don’t, although they do have Yuengling and a couple other large domestic drafts. see http://thebeerhive.com/Bottle_List for atrocious all-Flash website…

it’s not a particularly good list, either. isn’t there anywhere one can get, say, a cantillon geueze, or a fantome saison around here any more? hough’s has nary a sour beer to be had, and even d’s has been taken over by yet-another-good-ipa syndrome.

#ebby412… I finally made it to Nied’s, yesterday. I was doing a pub crawl in that small monsoon we had and that fish sandwich you mentioned was right on time, along with a couple of Miller beers and some onion rings. Thanks for the tip, the people were nice, just like you said and I’ll be going back there again.

To Val and others, I’m partial to the Barley and Hops establishment with the disclosed bias that I live nearby. There are usually several craft beers on draft and a tremendous selection of bottled beers from around the world. They did have a sour beer on draft recently. The name escapes me at the moment but I’ll ask next time I am there. My recollection of the Beerhive from approximatly 2 weeks ago was that they did have some IPAs on draft but also had a porter, an imperial stout, wheat beer, and some others. As you are doubt aware, these small batch brew offerings change frequently.

Happened to be shopping in the strip today and stopped into the Beehive. Took a photo of the menu but couldn’t upload it to this forum. So here is the draft beer menu for today, 12/22/12. I think one could find a suitable offering. I had the Atwater Winter – Yuengling Lager; Wolavers Alta Gracia; Southern Tier 2 Xmas; Brooklyn Winter Ale; Unita Dubhe; Woodchuck Winter; Harpoon Chocolate Stout; Belhaven Wee Heaven; Lagunitas Brown Shugga; Sly Fox Odyssey IPA; Atwater Winter; Saranac Caramel Porter.

Cool, thanks!

To get a picture on here, upload it to a site like Flickr, then get the URL of the actual photo (starts with http, ends with .jpg), then post the link here. Exactly like the following, only use angle brackets “<” and “>” instead of square ones:

Fulton, great battlefield update. But you didn’t say what you thought of that Atwater.

Thanks Val. The Atwater was just right on a cold December afternoon. To the PBR fan, I was once (1981) on a cross-country ride in Southern Illinois. PBR was the beverage of choice for every redneck establishment in that area. My cohort and I, a couple of longhairs at the time, were not treated too kindly by the locals. Glad that civilization (at least with regard to beer) has advanced since then.

I’ll have to check that beer out, thanks. And you’re spot-on. PBR is definitely old-school redneck beer. It just so happens I’ve drank my share of it up at the cabin, although Miller High Life is my domestic beverage of choice. It’s even better when you can find it in the pony bottles…

Had plenty of PBR and Miller (Bud too for that matter) in the past, when there were not so many other quality choices. The last mass produced beer I’ve had was a Carlsberg. I used to think that was so good. In reality, it doesn’t even compare to what is available in today’s craft beer market.

Fulton, I am a beer lover too, and appreciate all kinds of micro-brews and such. But my inner redneck never gets tired of the High Life. I likes me some Carlsberg, too. I drank a fair amount of it in 2011. Guinness is always a good choice, and almost any IPA or pale ale. One of my resolutions for this New Year is to try and make it out to that week-long Pittsburgh beer dealio. I absolutely love doing a good pub crawl, especially when I have all afternoon. We might ought to lay one on, this winter. Preferably during a blowing snow storm, when traffic is at a crawl, and we can sally forth in our quest for World Domination. Of course it would be a combination of nifty breweries, as well as holes-in-the-wall!

Val, I won’t hold your Foxworthian beverages choices against you. But if any Beechnut starts coming out of the commisures, that could be a deal breaker :-) . We did take in some of that PGH Craft Brew Week festivities in 2012. I beleive it was held in late April, as I recall. I would love to join you in a blizzard pub crawl this winter. Keep in touch.

I will purchase a sixpack of Miller High Life beer in honor of this ad.

Unless it is truly awful (uh… a distinct possibility) I will be making it my beer of choice.

As an update, Barley and Hops closed its doors during the fall of this year. It was a nice place to go. I can make a guess as to what the problems were, but it did have an upside and its closing has left a void in the Bethel Park area.
