Pittsburgh Brewery Tour
Visiting the Steel City and want to tour Pittsburgh’s most iconic breweries, Church Brew Works, Penn Brewery and the East End Growler Shop at Pittsburgh Public Market? Hop on board as we travel back in time to the days of prohibition and experience Pittsburgh’s historic brewing roots.
First we start at East End Growler Shop at the Pittsburgh Public Market, a satellite of the renowned East End Brewing Company – Pittsburgh’s home for fresh local beer since 2004!
Then visit Penn Brewery to experience the history of Pittsburgh’s German immigrant community while indulging in authentic German beer and cuisine. Penn Brewery dates back to 1848, when it was located in Deutschtown, a neighborhood of the city of Allegheny (which is now considered Pittsburgh’s North Side). Penn Brewery was also the first pour house paired with a restaurant after the end of prohibition.
Enjoy a final stop at Church Brew Works, one of the most scenic breweries you’ll ever lay your eyes on. Recognized as the best brewpub in America at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival, Church Brew Works is housed inside a renovated Catholic Church. The church was built in 1902 during Pittsburgh’s first industrial boom and offers a glimpse into Pittsburgh’s historic past. Enjoying great beer and delicious food among beautifully stained-glass windows and other historical church relics provides a one-of-a-kind drinking experience.
