East End Brewing Company

Anyone of legal age in the Pittsburgh area knows of the East End Brewing Company. East End has been serving the Western Pennsylvania area kegs and, as of 2014, pints at the brewery. With food trucks, Keg Rides, Crafts & Drafts and pub quiz nights, the East End Company keeps the local Pittsburgh community well entertained. The Big Hop IPA and Pedal Ale are popular options for drinks. If you can’t or don’t want to drink for the night, ask for the Barmy Soda Pop: fresh and house-made root beer or ginger ale.

Although it’s a bit outside of the city, Full Pint’s tap list makes it worthy of the trip. They have recently opened a tap house (Full Pint Wild Side Pub ) in Lawrenceville, where you can try all of Full Pint’s beers alongside seasonal meals made by Wild Side Purveyors. For many people the Wild Side Cherry Berliner Weisse Sour Ale and the White Lightning are go-to drinks, but give the Chinookie IPA a go too.

Grist House Brewing

Family-run businesses seem to always have something special about them, and Grist House Brewing is no different. Brothers, best friends, girlfriends, wives and in-laws all put in a hand to make Grist House work. While sipping your Camp Slap Red IPA and grabbing a bite to eat at one of the rotating food trucks, you can also enjoy live music twice a month at this dog- and kid-friendly spot.

Penn Brewery

Restaurant, German, Contemporary
Penn Brewery knows that you can’t enjoy a great German beer unless it’s accompanied by great German food, and makes sure to give you both. The beer garden makes you forget that you are in a restored, old industrial building in the middle Pittsburgh, and transports you right to the European countryside. The Penn beer samplers are great if it’s your first time and you can’t make up your mind. Ordering a pretzel with beer cheese is a must.
