I would suggest the Duquesne Incline rather than the Monongahela one - the views are better from the Duquesne Incline and there's a museum there as well.
They are both on the same street - Grandview Ave (there are free observation decks along this street as well) but about a mile apart.
East End Brewing in Homewood is another local brewery (alas no brewpub though) they are open for "growler hours" - free samples and a brief tour - on Saturdays from 12 - 5.
Frick Park (near the eastern borders of the city with the suburbs) has a nice flat trail at the bottom of it. Schenley Park is nice as well.
