With another week of #StayHomePGH in the books, I was thinking about the few times we DO (safely) leave the house these days.

One of which – inevitably – is the ole trip to the grocery store. And that led to some thinking about local beers available at – say, Giant Eagle.

Here’s our shoutout to one of those local options.

Voodoo Brewery has unveiled a new beer that is available (in 16-oz four-packs) at all Giant Eagle Market District locations.

Why we recommend it: Voodoo describes this sessionable pale ale as “bright, crisp and refreshing” with distinct notes of pineapple, tropical fruit and citrus with a hint of pine. It’s awesome to see a west coast style make its way into circulation. With a hop-forward aroma and subtle bite, this is definitely a beer we’re excited about.

Per Jake Voelker, managing partner at Voodoo: “This is a good opportunity to buy local – Tranquil Breezes will be on the shelves at Market District locations around the area.”

Honorable Mention Beer: Per the guys at Voodoo, you can continue supporting local by checking out their other beers as well. Voodoo’s year-round offerings are available at most Giant Eagle locations.

“Selections vary from location to location,” Voelker explains. “But generally the Market Districts have most of these – some refrigerated and some not.”
