Embark on a Porter Brewery Tour!

Looking for a break from your normal weekend go-tos? Love a good libation with friends? Not not just any ol’ drink, but an effervescent brew? Then come celebrate Pittsburgh’s local craft beer culture with the Porter Brewery tours! You’ll get a new taste of the city by sampling pints at 3 amazing local breweries over a course of 3 hours. Breweries include, Dancing Gnome, Grist House, East End, and more!

Porter Brewery offers tours every Saturday and Sunday, stopping at 3 different renowned breweries. The price of your tour ticket includes about a pint of beer at each stop, though each guest is welcome to purchase additional beer by the pint or the growler. Three stops, three pints, three hours — looks like 3 is the magic number!

Tours also include water and popcorn on the bus, so you can munch between breweries and stay hydrated. But, if you’re still feeling hungry after you exit the disembark the beer bus, you’re in the luck — you’ll be dropped off right outside either the Ace Hotel, home to the Whitfield, or James Street Gastropub.

Each unit is unique, and each stars some of the best features you can find in Shadyside. Hickory hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances gleam in the midday sun that shines through floor-to-ceiling windows. Spacious layouts, walk-in closets, balconies, and high ceilings ensure that this urban dwelling is anything but small. (Photographed below!)
