ABV, volume LXIII

A couple of things to bear in mind as you place an order for (beer) delivery.

  • Be Patient: Many breweries are rolling out delivery for the first time and processes are being optimized / smoothed out with practice.
  • Check for Updates: Things change – sometimes daily. From beer inventory to delivery areas and statewide regulations – breweries have been posting updates on their respective Facebook and Instagram pages.

Pro Tip: Our friends at the Pittsburgh Brewers Guild are posting weekly updates from local breweries. They’ve built this page on their website dedicated to both curbside takeout AND delivery options from local breweries who are members of the guild.

Additionally, the Pittsburgh Brewers Guild Facebook page is a great resource for updates and local beer news.
