Default Steeler Fans

New to the area, anyone know of a good Steeler bar?

I'd be willing to bet there are some great ones in Pittsburgh. However, you're in Patriots country, you won't find a bar that caters to any other team. We're pretty loyal to our New England teams. You can find sports bars that will show Steelers games (among others) but I wouldn't cheer real loud for them.

I'm jus sayin'.

My son is a Steelers fan, but since he's only 10, he's not much of a bar-hopper yet.

Hmm, that is kind of like asking for a (gasp) Yankees bar in Maine!

Most bars will tune into a Steelers game for you, granted that the Patriots are not playing.

Default Steeler Nation

There's Steelers bars all over the country. After the steel mills closed, a couple hundred thousand people left the city (and many still do) looking for jobs. And no matter how far you are from physically from Pittsburgh, you're still from Pittsburgh. So there's bars all over the country that tune in to every steelers game and the Pittsburgh diaspora gathers in those places to watch. According to the P-G's Steeler Nation website, there's a bar called Bleachers in Portland, but I think it might be gone.
