WHAT IF WE MADE A BEER FOR EACH NEIGHBORHOOD IN PITTSBURGH?
We've been thinking a lot lately about our last 15 years of brewing beer in Pittsburgh, what it means to be a "local brewery", what it means to brew beer for locals to enjoy, and how people become connected to this notion. Pittsburgh is a city of neighborhoods, each with their own identities, and fiercely loyal populations.
So to celebrate the wonderful diversity of neighborhoods that is Pittsburgh, we've decided to brew a brand new beer to for each and every one of them. And yeah, that's a long list. We went through a lot of back and forth with a lot of people on the number until finally the good folks at the City of Pittsburgh came to our rescue with the Official Number: 90. You can see their list here, which is what we’ll be using.
As these new beers roll out, this project becomes a wonderful way for all of us here at EEBC, as well as you, our GOOD BEER Fans, to more deeply engage with our Pittsburgh home, neighborhood by neighborhood, beer by beer. It also lets us get out into the neighborhoods to do more pop-up style can releases at unique spots around town, connecting with the community partners and incredible people we have come to know and respect in Pittsburgh over the last 15 years of brewing here.
Pittsburgh has always been our home, and I hope people will take this opportunity to get out of their comfort zones and explore it a bit more with us. Below is a list of the YOU ARE HERE beers, in the order we produced them.
