SkyVue Pittsburgh Apartments Favorite Brewpubs
March 11th, 2016 by Ryan Sundling
Pittsburgh seems to be overflowing with outstanding craft beer these days. Which if you’re like some of the beer lovers here at SkyVue Pittsburgh apartments, is very good news. To help you wade through all the expertly crafted suds, we’re profiling three of the top contenders from Pittsburgh Magazine’s first annual ’Burgh Brew Brackets poll that asked readers to vote on their favorite local brew.
Beer has been part of the city’s cultural identity for more than a century, writes Pittsburgh magazine. But now, PM adds, “In contrast to our longstanding reputation as a town of people who were perfectly content with whatever generic brew was on tap at the corner bar, the craft-beer revolution has taken over the city.” The term ‘craft beer’ is notoriously difficult to specifically define, as the UK’s Guardian newspaper notes. But with PM’s help below, we do our best to serve up the best places in town to sip handcrafted, locally made, small batch beer.
The Top 3 Brewpubs According to SkyVue Pittsburgh Apartments
One of the best things about the Pittsburgh apartments for rent at SkyVue is that we’re convenient to so many parts of the city so many ways. When beers is involved, it’s best to leave the car parked in our private covered garage and take advantage of easy access to public transit and ride sharing services. SkyVue’s location makes for a great base camp from which to explore the mountain of brewpubs all around town. And while you’re out, consider this: What could make coming home to your fresh Pittsburgh apartment even better? Picking up growler of your favorite beer to drink here at Skyvue.
After four rounds of PM’s challenges, Brew Gentlemen beat out 16 local beer makers to win top honors. The Braddock brewpub is the crowd-funded vision of two former Carnegie Mellon University students. On tap is an enticing array of ales stouts, IPAs, and seasonal brews. It’s even featured in “Blood, Sweat and Beer,” an independently made documentary about the craft-beer industry.
According to PM, “if you find yourself in the close-by burbs, we insist that you drop by Hitchhiker Brewing Co. in Mt. Lebanon.” We’ll go as far as to suggest making a day of it. PM goes on to suggest that visitors “consider traveling in accordance with HBC’s commitment to sustainable living by taking the light-rail T (a station is a block away) or riding your bike (there’s a rack right outside). There, you’ll find everything from kölsch, farmhouse saison, and witbier, to IPA, oatmeal brown and black IPA. They’ve got house made ginger ale and root beer, too
“It only took us 10 years to figure out that the most sound business is to put beer in a glass and serve it across a bar,” East End Brewing Co-Founder Scott joked to PM. East End opened a brewpub last year in their original Larimer neighborhood location. They also have a tasting and growler room in the Strip at the Pittsburgh Public Market.
