Rivertowne....you go **** yourselves.


they never use real glasses around gamedays. at least they actually had what they said they had. its always "oh we just ran out of beer x, sorry."


yeah that's the one thing that I don't like about that place, and I don't think it's just game days. I've gone down there on a random Saturday with neither the Pirates or Pitt in town, and I was given a plastic cup. To me, they might as well had a bartender in the corner manning the keg pump.


I wrote an email to Unibrou regarding the gross misrepresentation of their product by the Rivertowne Brewery. I suggested that they not allow them to serve their beers.

Nothing yet, just sent it this morning. I've been stewing on it for a while and decided that it was atleast my duty to let them know about it.

I know once I wrote to apple about a busted Ipod that the store wouldn't do anything about. It was less than a month after the 1 year warranty. They sent me a replacement. I think I might have complained to At&t once, if I did actuall send that letter, they didn't do anything.

I didn't word this as a complaint ....it was more of a "people are going to get the wrong impression of your beer because of that crappy place".

me little ones bdays always consisted of a 1/4 or 1/5 of Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold. Seemed to be OK with everyone. This past weekend we did Phin and Matts and that seemed to go over well with almost everyone. It's a tough decision to appease everyone. I'd say look for what brewery you like, then try to get something more universal or a session from them.

no sir, but any distributor can order it in, it just becomes a race against time for you and the delivery schedules.... pick up that phone and start calling

I did that with Keurig a few months ago. Went to make a cup one morning and the pump would start but wouldn't pump any water. The unit itself was maybe 6 weeks over warranty and Keurig didn't even question it. Asked for my personal info, said they'd work on getting a replacement model out to me as soon as possible. Three days later, I had a new...ok, refurb'ed Keurig on my doorstep.

Stone's Enjoy Before This Date IPA was the freshest bomber bottle of hop heaven that I have found in a long time. The hop smell is amazing as soon as it is opened, and comes in at 9.2% abv.

The enjoy by date was 10/25/13. It made it to 09/25/13.
