I've seen more of their stuff popping up around here and picked up a bottle of their Saison Vos at Whole Foods yesterday on the beer guy's recommendation (I haven't had it yet). I mostly like Victory and Troeg's, so I thought I'd see if this is another good Eastern PA brewer.
Their brewpub is not far from me. They are a solid brewery, albeit not in the level of Troegs et al. Love their red ale
Thanks. In a way, I'm kind of pleased to hear that less than glowing assessment. It seems like Eastern PA is already well ahead of Western PA in terms of good local breweries.
That got me thinking, what are people's picks for the best Pittsburgh/Western PA brewer? I've had East End, Rivertown, Penn, and Church Brew Works, and I find all of them to be decent, but nothing special. If Fathead's counts (I'm not sure that they do, since I thought they brewed a lot of their stuff in Ohio), I think I would go with them.
