Blue Canoe Hopes to Be Back In Business In November
It was March 18th when a vicious fire ripped through the Towne Square Building in Titusville, causing tons of damage in its wake and nearly crippling Blue Canoe Brewery beyond repair. Fortunately, the fire was contained and the building was saved, but it took Blue Canoe out of the brewing game for several months.
What came next was a testament to what the Pittsburgh craft beer scene is all about. Breweries, craft beer enthusiasts, and community members across the region donated time, money, and whatever they could to aid Blue Canoe owners Bill Zimmer and Jeremy Potocki in their rebuilding efforts. They brewed a collaboration beer with East End Brewing and their beers remained in rotation at The Independent Brewing Company. The Brewers Olympics held at Grist House Brewing on the final day of Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week helped raise money that was all contributed to the renovations of Titusville’s best craft beer destinations.
Through months of hard work, Blue Canoe is nearly ready to open their doors once again! They are targeting a mid-November relaunch that will showcase their unique craft beers, updated menu, and brand new taproom in the heart of Titusville.
Get ready…Blue Canoe is back!
