Pittsburgh Airport, Tap House

13 Mar

Vacation is a great time to relax and recharge your batteries. As a beer lover and beer connoisseur it is an awesome time to experience new and exciting beers and breweries. As with most vacations we’re always running around seeing family and friends and we forget about the R & R part.
This trip started out at Pittsburgh Airport early in the morning. Looking for something to eat for breakfast I found the Tap House bar. I’m very familiar with the Tap House, having flown out of Pittsburgh a few times they have a great variety of craft beers on tap, bottles and cans. Ok also a very good selection of food. I was looking for something hearty and healthy to hold me through my flight, peanuts are just not enough. After looking over the beer list I pick the East End Brewing Co. Black Strap Stout. I’m very familiar with East End Brewing’s great reputation and good beer offerings. The Black Strap Stout is a big and bold American stout brewed with black strap molasses and brown sugar. This beer has a very roasty, robust chocolate and black coffee notes with some sweetness supported by a hefty hop bitterness of centennial and cascade hops. The beer was full bodied malty and creamy with hints of black coffee the perfect choice for breakfast. In the background my wife is sipping on a Founders Breakfast Stout which says it all. Definitely a place to stop on your way through and enjoy one.
