Pittsburgh Winter Beerfest Presented by Fat Head’s Brewery, the celebration of all things craft beer, returns to downtown Pittsburgh, February 28-29, 2020. The two-night celebration of craft beer features more than 400 local, regional and hard-to-find craft beers from more than 130 breweries including Penn Brewery, Hop Farm Brewing Co., East End Brewing Company and many more. The festival offers concessions from local food trucks as well as live music both Friday and Saturday night – all inside The David Lawrence Convention Center.
Spanning 150,000+ square feet at The David Lawrence Convention Center, Winter Beerfest features more than 400 different craft beers from more than 130 breweries to choose from! The event offers an inexpensive way to sample sometimes very expensive beers while learning about the beers from Brewers and Distributors. Some of the beers that will be on hand cost as much $18 a small bottle or $500 a keg. In total, over 10,000 Gallons of Beer will be dispensed at Pittsburgh Winter Beerfest! A full beer & spirit list will be released via www.pittsburghbeerfest.com in mid-January, though every year includes surprise offerings as well.
Proceeds from Pittsburgh Winter Beerfest benefit Animal Rescue Partners and Biggies Bullies in their shared mission to find “forever homes” for animals in need.
