    • Tuesday, October 08, 2019
    • 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM
    • Southern Tier – 316 N Shore Dr, Pittsburgh, PA 15212
    • 68


    Join us as we celebrate the fall season at Southern Tier on the North Shore!

    Pittsburgh is the home of the first satellite brewpub from Southern Tier Brewing Co., which was founded in Lakewood, NY less 3 hours north of PGH in 2002. They’re known for brewing world-class hoppy ales and decadent dessert beers alike, but what many folks know Southern Tier for is the experience they have when visiting the brewery. At STBC PGH, you can expect the full Southern Tier experience.

    Southern Tier takes their food as seriously as they do their beer. The full kitchen aims to pair each house made dish, from sweet to savory, with their handcrafted brews.

    Now, about the brews. What you see inside these walls is a German-designed Krones Micro Cube capable of cranking out about 8.5 bbls per turn (10hL to be exact.) Beside that, you’ll note eight 25 hL fermenters. They’ll brew local-only beers for the pub (some that’ll stay local, some that’ll go into full production in Lakewood), local collaborations, and beers that are just plain fun.

    Four of the fermenters act as serving tanks, so the beer will flow directly from the vessel to the tap tower – as fresh as it gets!

    Of the 30 taps in house, they’ll have a few on from their friends and partners at Victory Brewing Co. If you’ve not heard, as of early 2016, STBC and VBC have been united in brewing under one shared vision and ownership group. So while you’re here sipping on Southern Tier 2XIPA or Nu Skool IPA, you can also grab a fresh, delicious brew from Victory.

    Nearby street and garage parking is available. This event also has easy access to the North Shore T Station.
