Welcome to Pittsburgh! What do you want to do first? Not sure yet? Well what about plans for tomorrow? …Well you still have time to decide… Where are you staying? You haven't booked a hotel yet?!?!
A new brewery guide and dozens of local events highlight 2023 event
With the Allegheny, the Monongahela and the Ohio always flowing, it only makes sense that Three Rivers Beer Week serves as the annual celebration of the city’s more than 40 breweries, which keep a current of ales and lagers flowing for beer fans near and far.
This year’s version takes place April 12-16 and features more than 20 events at local breweries. Another major attraction: the third edition of the Pittsburgh Brewery Guide will be released during Three Rivers Beer Week.
The new Pittsburgh Brewery Guide highlights 44 Allegheny County breweries and nine different brewery trails that wind their way up and down the city’s river banks and through dozens of neighborhoods. The concept of the Guide is simple: Beer lovers can earn prizes by visiting more Allegheny County breweries.
Guides will be sold at participating breweries for $10 (and online at pittsburghbreweries.com for $15) beginning April 12 and available until supplies last. These are great gifts for locals and visitors alike.
In addition to the release of the new Guide, the two dozen events will offer beer fans plenty of fun. A few of note:
