Pittsburgh Brewing Company - Iron City Beer

The name says it all, its a Pittsburgh beer, and I'm pretty sure its only consumed inside the city limits. I only drink this stuff on 3 occasions; Steeler games, Pirate games, and Penguin games. I know what your thinking, why don't I drink it during Pittsburgh Power games, well because that's just dumb.

Pittsburgh Brewing Company has been around since the 1860's by two German guys, and then passed on to two other German guys. Its actually brewed outside Pittsburgh in Latrobe, but corporate headquarters are in the Strip District just outside of downtown. They make a variety of beers, including the always glorious American, American Light, and Old German. Apparently German's make good beer, but apparently its not Iron City

The beer tastes like beer. Thats really all there is. If you think what beer tastes like, its this. If you went to someone who doesn't really drink beer, and said taste this beer, they would say, yeah that tastes like beer. The first few go down a little rough, but then the flood gates open to an all night bender, and a pending hangover that will make you butthurt in the morning.

All in all give it a shot. It's a good tailgate beer and a good Pittsburgh beer. Not complex, not hoppy, and nothing to think about. Oh yea, and its cheap, like 2 bucks a bottle at a bar, and 4.5% ABV.

Drinkability: 7/10
Taste: 4/10
Value: 8/10
Curb Appeal: 5/10

Overall: 6/10
