    So I don't wanna come across as hyper-homer, but I'm really happy with them so far. The taproom's pretty spacious, the atmosphere's kind of like East End's but with higher ceilings & more natural light. They're toilet-trained-kid-friendly (no high chairs or changing tables, but there's low seating, games, etc.), which is subjectively a plus or minus, I realize. Doing the standard food truck/order in/BYOF for food. Parking situation is good if, say, you're driving a full-size pickup from the North Hills.

    I'm relieved to say I really like their beer - I'd invested a small amount of time & effort before ever trying their product, which is risky, but it turns out they make some good stuff. Opening with a pretty standard variety (hefe, hazy pale, hazy DIPA, imperial porter, I guess there will be eight pouring when they actually open), & I dug everything I tried (the DIPA was wicked good). There are small, forgivable flaws (e.g. hefe could use more head), but I'd put them above par for out-of-the-gate breweries in the past few years.

    Would have been cool if this place was around back when I lived in Penn Hills.

    Will certainly be checking in periodically to see beer names considering the music theme. "Let the Mango Through". Fucking love it.

    Didn’t someone mention Firestone finally coming to market here a while back? When is that happening?

    Its only on tap at the Quiznos on South Craig street but they don't allow onsite consumption so you gotta get individual pints delivered to your house via Door Dash.

    However, you should start seeing cans at all your favorite GEs, Ds, and 6 pack shops.

    Speaking of Quiznos, there's one in the new Stanton turnpike plaza. Their seasonal special was a LOBSTER hoagie. On the turnpike. How many minutes from consuming that would your insides take to erupt?

    Also very excited for Firestone

    Looks like $12 growlers at Wexford WF. Perfect for my camping trip this weekend.
