Snag Your Tickets Today For the Inaugural Downtown Butler Beer Fest

The overall beer scene in Pittsburgh is chock full of growth and development thanks to new breweries opening in different pockets of the region and creating destinations for beer enthusiasts everywhere. One of those areas is Butler. Three breweries are currently churning out great beers: Reclamation Brewing, Butler Brew Works, and Cellar Works Brewing. Two more are in planning: Recon Brewing and Missing Links Brewery. And let’s not forget ShuBrew in neighboring Zelienople. All in all, it’s a safe assumption that Butler won’t be thirsty any time soon.

With this tremendous boom in the area north of Pittsburgh, a beer festival was the next logical step and the crew at Reclamation Brewing have made it happen. On Saturday, June 24th, Reclamation Brewing presents the Inaugural Downtown Butler Beer Fest! The event will take place from 3:00pm – 7:00pm with a VIP Session running from 3-4pm. General Session will run from 4-7pm. Only VIPs and Designated Drivers will be able to enter the party before 4:00pm. It will take place on the roof of the brand new Butler Centre City Parking Garage. In the event of rain, the fest will be moved to the 3rd floor of the garage.
