It's about time the group checks out a new place.
I'm always a fan of seeking out new restaurants that might be worthy of a meetup, so I made my way to Carnivores a while back to scope out a possible meetup. What I found, was a bar that had many of the right pieces in place to be a great meetup destination – a decent amount of space, plenty of craft beer options, and a fairly friendly atmosphere. It's great to see restaurants outside our normal working set that fit that criteria, so I always like to reinforce their decisions by introducing them to all the beer enthusiasts of the Pittsburgh Beer Meetup. The group's first trip to Carnivores is exactly that.

Located right up in Oakmont's main drag — Allegheny Avenue, Carnivores has a pretty impressive draft list for a place I had never heard of until recently. While I was there, they had 12 beers on tap with relatively few macro-lagers and at least two that I had never run into before. They also have a fairly impressive bottle selection stored in several coolers nearby. In other words: if you like seeking out exactly the right beer for the situation, then you'll certainly be able to do it at Carnivores.
Sign up for our Carnivore's Meetup today, and I'm sure we'll have a great time!
