East End Brewing’s neighborhood beer series ‘YOU ARE HERE’ aims to produce 90 different beers; one celebrating the identity of each Pittsburgh neighborhood.
The team at East End Brewing has announced what might be the most ambitious, most Pittsburgh beer project ever – a beer for every neighborhood in Pittsburgh.
The series is titled “YOU ARE HERE” and East End plans to unveil one beer per neighborhood.
“This project is a wonderful way for all of us here at EEBC, as well as our GOOD BEER Fans, to more deeply engage with our Pittsburgh home, neighborhood by neighborhood, beer by beer,” said Scott Smith, owner of East End Brewing.
Beer #1: Allentown – an Imperial Shandy made with tea from Prestogeorge
The series debut correlates with the first Pittsburgh neighborhood in the alphabet. YOU ARE HERE: Allentown is an Imperial Shandy (7.5% ABV) made with lemon juice and tea that is locally sourced from Prestogeorge in the Strip District.
The first neighborhood was chosen byEast End Brewing. The can design is a collaboration with Dan Rugh of Commonwealth Press.. East End Brewing has partnered with Commonwealth Press on a number of design projects. Commonwealth Press, which started printing T-shirts in the basement of a home over a decade ago, now operates a full-service print shop located in the
Allentown Beltzhoover neighborhood, right next to Allentown.
