This is a directory of bars/restaurants in the Pittsburgh Region

Sorry if I missed a few but this is a work in progress.

This list does not include South Side, as there is a separate page.

Closed bars will be deleted and new ones added as my time permits.

Bars can serve from 7 am thru 2 pm but most open at 11 am.

Bars listed in any particular group may not be near one another so do not assume that you can use this list for a pub-crawl.

This directory does not give specific information concerning address and phone as that should be on the bar’s website. These bars can close at any time without notice to me.

This directory is focused on bars that serve craft beer but selection may be limited.


*If you have made it this far down without falling asleep, I have a history story for you. When London, England was establish it was a walled city. Within these walls were districts such as Farringdon, Aldgate, Moorgate, etc. They were known to be within the walls. Districts that grew outside the walls (e.g. Farringdon Without) were known to be without the walls. I have always liked that word so I am using it on this page because I can and it’s mine. Yea!
