If you come to SouthSide looking for good beer, it would be a crime to skip Smokin' Joe's. It's only a block or two away from Fathead's, and has an even better beer selection (though I definitely wouldn't skip Fathead's either).
Any of the Sharp Edge bar/restaurants are great, especially for Belgian beer. The Belgian drafts are pretty pricey, but if you make it during happy hour, they're half off. I could be wrong, but I think the furthest north one is the Sharp Edge Bistro in Sewickley. There are 5 of them now though, so check their website (Locations
) to find the one closest to you.
Bocktown (The place to beer?|? Bocktown Beer and Grill
) is also pretty good. Good food, good beer selection (though their bottled stuff is pretty pricey), and pretty close to the airport, I think.
