Southern Tier’s North Shore Brewpub Construction Underway
Southern Tier Brewing Company has been a staple in the Pittsburgh craft beer community for several years now. You’d have to try pretty hard to visit a craft beer destination and not find an offering from the Lakewood, New York brewery. Their distribution footprint has grown across the eastern seaboard and has stretched as far west as Washington, Oregon, and Alaska.
Through all their growth and success, Pittsburgh has established itself as Southern Tier’s 2nd best market. With products including their Blackwater Series, 2X Series, and the wildly popular Pumking Imperial Pumpkin Ale, their impact on the market made their decision to branch into the Steel City on another level very easy.
On August 3rd, 2016, the owners of Southern Tier broke ground on a new, spacious, 15-barrel brewpub on Pittsburgh’s North Shore. This facility is located in the heart of the bustling area in the building that’s also home to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, giving visitors easy access to PNC Park, Heinz Field, Stage AE, and the North Shore Bike Trail. They will feature 30 taps and hope to collaborate with other Pittsburgh breweries for special beers that will pour in their brewpub. Southern Tier will also boast a beer garden with 30 taps of its own, complete with a stage for live music. The brewpub will also see pub exclusives brewed in-house and featured in their taproom only.
Pittsburgh is experiencing tremendous growth and recognition regarding its beer scene and the addition of Southern Tier’s brewpub and their intentions to reach out to the local brewing community furthers those accolades. We have a lot to look forward to as we enter the Fall season. It’s pretty safe to say…there won’t be a shortage of beer as the temperatures start to dip.
The new Southern Tier Brewpub is anticipating a grand opening in mid-October.
