Ladies and gentlemen, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Pittsburgh’s newest online craft beer destination, the Pittsburgh Craft Beer Network! Without question, the Pittsburgh region has seen a spike in the popularity of craft beer over the past several years. New bars have opened their doors, existing bars have changed the game in regards to the beers they offer, and local breweries, distilleries, wineries, and meaderies are making their footprint in our region’s craft beer landscape.
In order to sustain this impressive growth, education behind these libations is imperative. If supply is going to grow, demand needs to as well. Therefore, it goes without saying you need to understand what these adult beverages are all about and why they’re better than the mass-marketed, watered-down options you’ve turned to for years out of habit. Not only that, but there are so many establishments putting craft beer center stage, you need to know about them so you can partake in fantastic drinking experiences anytime you desire.
That’s where the Pittsburgh Craft Beer Network comes in. This community will serve as your go-to resource for all things craft beer in the Pittsburgh region. PCBN is designed to be informative and educational, but also as fun and laid back as your favorite neighborhood bar. The element of “snobbery” that once hovered over craft beer will be found nowhere near PCBN. This site is all about providing you with the information you desire while entertaining and showing you the lighter side of the scene.
PCBN will give you access to bars, breweries, bottle shops and more, and let you know what events are going down ALL YEAR LONG. Over the course of 365 days, there are many samplings, beer dinners, collaborative events, special tappings, and more available for your consumption. Whether you’re a seasoned craft beer veteran or new to the scene and thirsty to enhance your knowledge base, keeping track of everything can get overwhelming. My goal with PCBN is to make things easier, providing direction on daily events in Pittsburgh directly from the bars and breweries.
Along with info on events taking place, PCBN is looking to have a ton of fun! You can expect this blog to be alive with features, videos, articles, and more. Over the next several months, expect this space to fill up with all sorts of content that will continue to amplify all the fun Pittsburgh’s craft beer scene brings! This Network is all about shining the spotlight on everything our scene has to offer, and truthfully, the best way to do that is to have a blast with it!
At the end of the day, we are talking about beer here. It doesn’t have to be hard to understand. The Pittsburgh Craft Beer Network is here to be a voice of advocacy for craft beer and for all the entities in the Pittsburgh region who are putting craft beer on the map. There’s a world of craft beer greatness to discover in the Steel City, and PCBN is looking to become your treasure map!
The Pittsburgh Craft Beer Network is live! Welcome to the show, and get ready to celebrate Craft Beer. All Year.
