My quest for the best burger in the City of Pittsburgh took me to Brewstone Beer Company…
The atmosphere at Brewstone Beer Company is 100% artificial, which is a shame, because it is a really nice space. This Bar/Restaurant is packed to the brim with televisions, wood venires, and underperforming menu items. First of all, I find it extremely odd that they would call themselves the Brewstone Beer Company, and not brew any of their own beer, it seems like they are operating under false pretenses. Second, the food is mediocre at best, I think their dinner menu was inspired by Applebees -which, by the way, is not a compliment. During our meal, my wife described her fish tacos as “Disappointing and Bland,” my burger was not much better. Apparently Brewstone is a franchise, big box inspirational, rubber stamp restaurant group production, and I have to say it is not a good thing.
Unfortunately, this burger was not very good. It was unsatisfactory from beginning to end. The beef was salty to the point where I considered sending the whole thing back. The bun was wet and soggy, and made my burger and me very uncomfortable. Under no circumstances is it a good idea to serve someone a burger on a wet bun, I would think that whoever put this burger together should know that, and just chose to send my burger out anyways, despite its deficiency. The giant portabella mushroom on top of my burger was fun, but it was challenging to eat with the burger because of its texture. Brewstone missed the mark in almost every possible way, consequently, I will not be returning, and I would recommend you steer clear of this train wreck.
