Cobblehaus’ First Sampling, Good Wood Beer Fest, and Rivertowne Hibernation Party
So much to get you caught up on today, I had to send a tripleheader Short Pour your way! Here’s some news and info from the Pittsburgh craft beer scene to bring you up to speed:
Cobblehaus Brewing in Coraopolis has been making great strides towards its grand opening and will be hosting their first-ever sampling session this Saturday, December 3rd from 5:00pm-8:00pm at the brewery! The sampling will coincide with Coraopolis Light Up Night. This is a great opportunity to check out what they have in store for the Pittsburgh beer community. Plus, as an added bonus, they’ll have several items available for sale that will make great Christmas gifts. Click here to get all the info from their newsletter.
The 3rd Annual Good Wood Barrel Aged Beer Fest
East End Brewing and Wigle Whiskey are back with the 3rd Annual Good Wood Barrel Aged Beer Fest on Saturday, January 21st from 6:00pm-9:00pm at the East End brewery in Larimer. 16 local breweries will be on hand showcasing their barrel-aged wares, Wigle will have whiskey samples, and Proper Brick Oven’s food truck will be slingin’ pizzas to keep your belly full.
