We tend to brew around 30-40 different beers every year. A lot of them end up on tap at your favorite bar or restaurant around the city, or for sale in cans or bottles at your beer distributor.  But to get the biggest selection or some exclusive beers, visit one of OUR LOCATIONS or contact us about getting a KEG.

Click here to see our "Year in beer" BRAND calendar, OR CLICK HERE to download our line sheet. Don’t like to drink? No problem; we’ve always got non-alcoholic Barmy Soda and Commonplace Coffee Cold Brew on draft as well.

Our beers are divided into three sections: YEAR ROUND, which are beers that are always on tap, year round. SEASONAL BEERS are brewed only at certain times of the year, but keep coming back year after year. And YOU ARE HERE beers are one-off beers from our series to brew a beer for each of the 90 neighborhoods in Pittsburgh. Read all about YOU ARE HERE, well, here.

Year Round

EEBC_TapStickers_BigHop.jpg

BIG HOP AMERICAN ALE

Loads of Centennial and Cascade hops make this a truly American Ale, brewed to be nice and hoppy but not especially bitter. Balanced with a solid Munich Malt backbone. Our flagship beer, and by far our most popular overall.

5.8% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 12 oz cans at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

 

Little Hop  IPA

Just like the name implies, this is the smaller version of our flagship Big Hop beer; lighter on hops, lighter on ABV, still full of flavor. The hop varieties we use for dry hopping on this beer changes with every batch! Perfect for porch parties and barbeques.

4.4 % ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, and Pints at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

MONKEY BOY HEFEWEIZEN

We've come up with the perfect way to enjoy a bright sparkling taste of summer, no matter what the season may be.  This hefeweizen carries a distinct banana ester profile, and crisp finish. No bananas were harmed or peeled in the brewing of this beer. It's just a little side benefit that our German yeast strain gives us.

6.2% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 12 oz cans at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

EEBC_TapStickers_FatGary.jpg

FAT GARY NUT BROWN ALE

Once part of our Session Ale series, and now a year-round beer, this deep brown ale is surprisingly light in body and low in alcohol. Dark malt character, light sweetness and modest alcohol content make it a beer that you can spend the day with and not hurt yourself.

3.7% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 12 oz cans at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

Seasonal Ales

clahdyweb.jpg

PARTLY CLAHDY NE IPA

Our original New England style IPA focusing more on flavor and dry hop additions than on bitterness. Think juicy orange juice, palette softness, and haze. Inspired by those perpetually overcast Pittsburgh skies that we all know and tolerate.

6% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 16oz cans at both our locations while supplies last. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

 

shahrsweb.jpg

CHANCE A'SHARS PALE ALE

The inevitable follow-up to Partly Clahdy, Chance A' Shahrs is a hazy Pale Ale brewed with Australian and New Zealand hop varieties (Galaxy, Motueka, and Rakau). Please note: the key word here is SHAHRS, or what yinz might call "rain" if you're not from around here. Not to be confused with “Sahrs.” 

5.8% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 16oz cans at both our locations while supplies last. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

slippyweb.jpg

CAUTION SLIPPY NE DIPA

The Pittsburghese weather puns continue with Caution Slippy, our dank New England style Double IPA. More juice, less bitter, tastes great! Made with Eureka and Experimental 06297 hops.

8.2% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 16oz cans at both our locations while supplies last. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

 

handshakeweb.jpg

PENNSYLVANIA HANDSHAKE (Milkshake IPA)

The most ridiculous beer style in the hazy-hoppy category made with our GOOD FRIENDS from Pizza Boy Brewing: a "Milkshake IPA". And by ridiculous, of course I mean ridiculously delicious. Brewed with lactose sugar, and real nectarines,  apricots, and peaches - along with an absurd amount of cold-side addition Citra, Amarillo, and Azacca hops

7% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 16oz cans at both our locations while supplies last. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

 

SaisonLaSecondeLabel.jpg

SAISON LA SECONDE

This is our Premiere Saison that’s been fermented with our favorite farmhouse yeast, and then secondarily aged on brettanomyces in red wine barrels for a year.

ONE TIME BREW

6.3% ABV

Availability: 750 ml bottles at both our locations. 

eye opener coffee porter

The perfect marriage of good coffee and GOOD BEER, just like it is here, at our base of brewing operations on Julius Street. This robust porter is made with coffee from our GOOD FRIENDS (and former roommates) at Commonplace Coffee.

6.5% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 16 oz cans at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

Bigger Hop double IPA

The granddaddy of our Hop line of beers, this Imperial IPA is for all you hop heads out there. Coming in at a robust 9%, we recommend sharing it with a GOOD FRIEND.

8.6% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 16 oz cans at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

Joe Melt Ale

The caffeinated version of our winter Snow Melt Ale. This special brew combines the brown & chocolate malts of Snow Melt with Papua New Guinea coffee from Commonplace Coffee, so locally roasted it's just upstairs. It literally can't be fresher than that!

7% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, and Pints at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

static1.squarespace.jpg

BRETT HOP

It's our flagship BigHop that was fermented 100% with Brettanomyces. It also picked up a bit of lacto-tartness along the way, as it too spent a bit of time in wine barrels. The result is a roller coaster of flavors: fruity, tart, bitter, and sweet with a dry finish of grapefruit pith. There's really a lot going on in this beer, and we're VERY pleased with the results.

5.9% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 750 ml bottles at both our locations. 

FatterGaryLabel1.jpg

FATTER GARY

The Imperial version of our flagship Fat Gary Nut Brown Ale, this is a bigger, bolder, Brown Ale. And coming in a year or so, bourbon-barrel aged Fatter Gary.

?% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, and Pints at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

GratitudeLabel.jpg

GRATITUDE BARLEYWINE

We've been brewing our Gratitude Barleywine with the exact same recipe since our very first year, as an annual thanks to you, our GOOD BEER Fans, for supporting us throughout these many years. All of the bottles are color-coded so you know what year they came out, and we highly recommend buying some bottles to save and see how they develop. Need help identifying a bottle? Check out the DEFINITIVE GRATITUDE GUIDE here.

11.1% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, 750 ml bottles, and Pints at both our locations. 

BBAGratitudeLabel.jpg

BOURBON BARREL AGED GRATITUDE BARLEYWINE

How can we make Barleywine better? How about we leave it in bourbon barrels for a year to pick up that sweet whiskey character? We’ve been releasing BBA Gratitude since 2014 and it’s a great pair even if it makes things complicated (see on the logo the bird is sitting on a barrel!). Need help identifying a can? Look at the bottom of the can - it’ll have the year it was canned.

11.4% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, 16 oz cans, and Pints at both our locations. 

wheathopNEW.jpg

wheat hop

This juicy, tropical-fruit-hop-loaded beer is just BURSTING with notes of peach, fresh melon, citrus, and passion fruit. And at a very "sessionable" 4.5%, you can really spend some quality time with it and not get hurt. 

5.1% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 16 oz cans at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

witteNew.jpg

East End Witte

A "Belgian White" wheat beer, gently spiced with coriander and bitter orange peel. Light bodied with hints of orange and lemon. A great beer to have in hand as Spring arrives in Pittsburgh, which can take a while.

5.1% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, and Pints at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

kolschNEW.jpg

Kölsch

This is a highly drinkable lager-like brew style tailored after those hailing from Cologne Germany. The perfect backyard beer, guaranteed to please anyone who says “I don’t know if I like craft beer.”

5.4% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, and Pints at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

Steelcut oatmeal stout

This beer does not lack in hop or oat character. Lighter in alcohol, we hope you can enjoy more than one over some good conversation and not lose your place. Pairs nicely with cheese, meat, and chocolate. Cheers!

4.4% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, and Pints at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

pedal pale ale

An American Pale Ale, crisp and hoppy with light malt sweetness, fruity esters, and very mild bitterness (in spite of being hopped four times). Each Spring we release it with our KEG RIDE, a charity event consisting of a low speed group ride, following the first kegs of the year to a mystery tap spot. And if you ride, the first beer's on us!

5% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 16 oz cans at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

FTC2.jpg

FOR THE CULTURE 2.0

An Imperial Brut IPA collaboration with Black Brew Culture for Fresh Fest 2019. For this light-bodied, champagne-like, hop forward style of beer, we went Imperial this time... by bumping up the Pilsner Malt (raising the abv to 9.1%), and upping the late addition hops from last year's 3.5lbs per barrel to a borderline ridiculous rate of 5.1lbs per barrel. We stuck with the same three varieties of Nelson Sauvin, Hallertau Blanv, and Idaho Seven hops, which just burst tropical fruit and white wine like notes.

9.1% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 16 oz cans at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

SACRED TULSI

This lacto-soured, wild fermented tart ale uses hefeweizen yeast and is conditioned on copious amounts of Holy Basil (Tulsi) which gives it a unique berry-life aroma and taste.

6.2% ABV

Availability: 750 ml bottles at both our locations. 

Seedless.jpg

SEEDLESS WATERMELON GOSE

800lbs of real live, certified organic watermelons are juiced to make this light, tart, fruity, refreshing Gose (Say it with me now... "Gó-suh").

4% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 16 oz cans at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

smokestack heritage porter

We often see this beer in the #1 spot on Beer Advocate in the Smoked Beer category, which is shocking given the infrequency and limited amout of this beer we make. But we'll take it! Usually bottled, but occasional draft. 

5.4% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints and Big Bottles at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

CREAMale.jpg

C.R.E.A.M. ALE

Don’t let the name fool you; there’s no “cream” or dairy in this ale; just a light, pale & extremely drinkable lager. We love using this beer as a base for flavored versions, adding chilis, peppers, or coffee to make a bunch of delicious variants.

4.6% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints and Big Bottles at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

greengiant.jpg

GREEN GIANT IPA

Not only was this beer our Brewer Joe's first recipe here, but it just might have been the fastest moving beer we've ever tapped! (Granted, we took a LOT of this one home ourselves.)

Green Giant is a 7.2% single hop IPA brewed with Citra Hops... first wort and late addition hopping keep the bitterness down and the hop flavor up front where it belongs. 

7.2% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 16 oz cans at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

BIG HOP HARVEST IPA

Each fall, we take your year-round favorite, Big Hop IPA and do something special with it to celebrate the September hop harvest. There’s a small window where we can get fresh-picked, undried, locally grown hops to toss into the kettle. These “wet hops” provide a truly unique flavor and aroma, almost like the smell of freshly cut grass – if your lawn was completely planted with American hops! Available starting in late September/early October and lasting until it’s all gone.

6.4% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 16 oz cans at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

Britsburgh ale

We're proud to brew the flagship beer for Pittsburgh's Britsburgh festival. It's a classic English style every year, and it’s always different.

ABV: Come see when it's done!

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 16 oz cans at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

nunkin2.jpg

Bourbon barrel aged nunkin ale

How do we make our Nunkin Ale (made with 100% real Nunkins and absolutely no pumpkins) for the fall even more delicious? How about aging it in Bourbon barrels? Yep, every year we make a fresh batch of Nunkin and then tuck all of it into bourbon barrels to serve it NEXT year. It’s a vicious cycle of spiced ale deliciousness.

6.8% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, 16oz cans,  and Pints at both our locations.

Along came a cider

Made from Pennsylvania Apples, pressed and fermented with our house ale yeast, our cider drinks more like a beer than a wine.  It's light, sparkling, tart, mildly sweet, and made from completely gluten free ingredients... just apples. (Of course, it's made on equipment that handles our regular beer, but everything is thoroughly cleaned in between.)

6% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, and Pints at both our locations.

oldknobby.jpg

OLD KNOBBY STOCK ALE

First we brew Old Nebby, our version of a classic malty English Stock Ale or “Old Ale.” Then we tuck it away in bourbon barrels for a year, until it emerges as the beloved “Old Knobby.”

7.4% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, and Pints at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

Black hop ipa

This black IPA carries more malt flavor than most as we believe that a black IPA should contain more than just color malts. Chocolate and roast aromas complement the minty hop aromas nicely. This brew clocks in at 6% and contains multiple hop additions of ahtanum, falconers flight, and a touch of amarillo hops.

7.3% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, and Pints at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

SNOW MELT WINTER ALE

A rich, roasty, mahogany-hued winter ale, brewed with Simcoe and Nugget hops that bring a bright pine finish. Best used for frost removal, holiday toasting, and guaranteed to clear the fog off your glasses. Released with the first snowflakes of the year, and lasting until it all melts in March...or maybe April. Hopefully.

7.0% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 16 oz cans at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.

sketchybeer.jpg

SKETCHY

We took an entire batch of Illustration Ale and transferred it to wine barrels, dosed them with a Brettanomyces culture, and parked them in our sahr aging area. The culture eventually took hold in each barrel, and it added another layer of flavor complexity to an already complex beer. Wine like, with a light tartness and some spice, dry finish.

??% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, Pints, and 750 ml bottles at both our locations. 

Black strap stout

An American Stout brewed with Black Strap Molasses and Brown Sugar - robust and roasty with notes of dark chocolate, and black coffee. Extremely dark, balanced with light sweetness, and a modest American hop flavor.

6.2% ABV

Availability: Growlers, Crowlers, and Pints at both our locations. Kegs through our wholesaler and at the Brewery.
