This brings me to The Brew Gentlemen Beer Co. located in the historic neighborhood of Braddock at 512 Braddock Ave, one of the new craft brew spots to open in Pittsburgh. Craft breweries are normally small, independent, and traditional. Co-owners Asa Foster and Matthew Katase have managed to take those three ingredients and add a bit of trendy luxury...and it works!
As far as beers go, they have a little something for everyone. We tried 5oz tasters of everything they had on tap, with names like General Braddock's IPA, Build and Destroy, and Apple Pie. My favorite was the Kitchen Sink from the Rapid Prototype Factory Series, The Gentlemen's line of experimental releases. This particular beer is amber in color, has a smooth finish and boasts a 6.0% ABV. It is a new creation that does not compare with any other beer genre.

PROS: Great beer, great service. Support local establishment. Food trucks!
CONS: Can get crowded on weekends. Food trucks change, so you have to contact brewery for schedule. With the Rapid Prototype Series your favorite beer may vanish before you had your fill.
