This would have gotten a 4 because as great as it is, it’s not the original ... and nothing beats the original. They do, however, do a really really great job with this location. It’s definitely a solid, consistent 4. The 5 comes from them finally introducing my all time favorite German beer. Kristalweizen. If you’ve never had a Kristal, I’d highly recommend. It’s basically a Hefe that’s been filtered. Add a lemon and you have a great summer beer. Drink that in the Hofbrauhaus Pittsburgh Biergarten and you get 5 stars!!
