Looking for a list of breweries around Pittsburgh’s vast South Hills region? Then this is the list for you.

This list will encompass all the breweries (and even a meadery!) located south of the city of Pittsburgh. Some breweries on this list are located outside of the official “South Hills” territory, however, we felt they deserved a shoutout due to their close proximity to the region.

Note: due to COVID-19, the breweries listed here may have temporarily closed their taprooms or may be exclusively takeout only. It’s best to check the individual brewery’s social media for more information.

If you don’t see your brewery listed, and would like us to add it to this list, please e-mail [email protected]

Apis Meadery

Apis offers a great selection of meads as well as local beer taps. There’s tons of parking across the street (FYI a paid lot) and there’s even a stage for musicians and comedians to perform. On a plus note, it’s dog-friendly inside.

Bloom Brew
100 Riverside Dr, Suite A
West Newton, PA 15089
(724) 317-1895

Bloom Brew is located right along the Yough River below the West Newton Fire Department. They offer a TON of taps and have a great outdoor space along the water. Also, there’s typically always a food truck and live entertainment outside and you can bring your dog!

Four Points Brewing
400 Washington Ave
Charleroi, PA 15022
(724) 565-5456
Facebook | Instagram | Website

Four Points offers some of the best beers in the region and their food (BBQ) is outstanding! It’s a little bit of a drive, but it’s certainly worth it for a great meal and some great beers. The prices are also great and there’s always cans and crowlers available to take home with you.

Headley’s Brewing
1743 E. Railroad St
Heidelberg, PA 15016
(412) 719-1393
Facebook| Instagram | Website

This place is incredibly small, but that’s part of the charm. Grab your growler and head to Headley’s (Hey, that’s a great slogan!) for a fillup. There selection is always good and the people pouring are even better. Great beer and great conversation.

Helicon Brewing
102 Union Ave
Oakdale, PA 15071
(724) 693-4204
Facebook | Instagram | Website

If you like pinball, you’ll love Helicon. Tons of pinball machines line the walls of this place, while great beer flows inside. Take a walk or jog on the trail before heading in.

Hitchhiker Brewing – Mt. Lebanon Taproom
190 Castle Shannon Blvd
Pittsburgh, PA 15228
(412) 343-1950
Facebook | Instagram | Website
** Dogs are allowed at the tables in front of the taproom and also the picnic tables on the side of the brewery. Dogs ARE NOT allowed on the deck. **

It’s small and quaint, however, Hitchhiker’s Mt. Lebo location is a gem in the city of Pittsburgh. They always have an amazing list of beers available and there’s always a small food menu available if you get hungry (tacos!). On a plus note, you can always grab cans to go.

Insurrection Aleworks
1635 E. Railroad St
Heidelberg, PA 15106
(412) 276-2030
Facebook | Instagram | Website

If the address sounds familiar, it’s because Insurrection is located down the street from Headley’s Brewing. The beer is always spectacular, but we think you’ll be equally impressed by their food. Try the wings, we dig them!

Mindful Brewing
3759 Library Road
Pittsburgh, PA 15234
(412) 668-3857
Facebook | Instagram | Website

You’ll be taken back by Mindful’s vast selection of beer (tap, bottle and cans!). They probably have close to 500 cans available and a ton of tap handles of their own stuff as well local and nation craft brands. The food menu is also vast and even has lots of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. Oh, let’s not forget the rooftop bar!

Spoonwood Brewing
5981 Baptist Road
Bethel Park, PA 15236
(412) 833-0333
Facebook | Instagram | Website

Spoonwood’s beer is great and the food is even better. However, we really love the ambiance here. Grab a stone-fired pizza and head out on their outdoor deck for live music and sunshine. There’s nothing quite like it!

Rusty Gold Brewing
43 W Pike St
Canonsburg, PA 15317
(724) 485-2332
Facebook | Instagram | Website

Rusty Gold is located in the heart of Canonsburg and offers a lot of great beers and food. One of our personal favorites is the Fried Bologna sandwich! There’s also some gluten-free beers available from Auroch’s!

Washington Brewing Company
28 E. Maiden St
Washington, PA 15301
(724) 222-5050
Facebook | Instagram | Website

Washington Brewing offers outdoor and indoor seating as well as a food menu handled by the popular Bubba’s Burgers. Try the Deep Fried Buffalo Chicken Dip!

Whitehorse Brewing Company at The Street
400 Adios Drive, Suite 20
Washington, PA 15301
(814) 279-1523
Facebook | Instagram | Website

Located right next door to Primanti Brother’s in Washington, you can grab a sandwich and then wander over for beers after at Whitehorse’s very cozy tap room. They’re dog-friendly, so feel free to bring your pooch!
