Summer is coming! It’s an amazing feeling, isn’t it? As we careen into the warmer months and all of the joy that summer offers, I’ve got a perfect event to help celebrate! It’s outside, has lots of epic beer options, and will knock your socks off. Promise.
I’m talking about the new event series just announced by the Beers of the ‘Burgh and the Pittsburgh Brewers Guild, the Traveling Beer Market. This event will feature a rotating meet up of local breweries in an open-air market in Pittsburgh. The first event is on May 28th, so yinz guys better mark your calendar!
Beginning with the event on the 28th, this series will tour different neighborhoods throughout Pittsburgh and allow participants to enjoy a brew in a unique setting, while shopping for beers to enjoy and stock up on for the weekend. There will also be a DJ, food truck, and other additional vendors to make it a great experience. You do not want to miss this – it’s one stop shopping for the perfect weekend!
The first event will be held at Bay 41 (Lawrenceville area) and boasts a most excellent lineup of breweries. You can grab brews from Brew Gentlemen, East End, Old Thunder Brewing Company, ShuBrew and Leaning Cask.You seriously cannot go wrong with beer from any of these amazing breweries. Want to grab some food as well? Blowfish BBQ and Progression Bistro will be present at the event for some amazing noms. This event is the perfect way to kick off Memorial Day weekend!
I’m super excited for this event because it’s a great way to support local, grab many killer beers, and enjoy a great Friday night in the ‘Burgh! I can’t wait to see where this market goes next!
