The Pittsburgh Craft Beer Alliance is a non-profit 501(c)(6) organization made up
of craft beer professionals and enthusiasts from all over the Pittsburgh region.
Overseen by a board of brewery, restaurant & craft beer industry veterans, as
well as other passionate craft beer fans, the PCBA was created to promote and
enhance the thriving Pittsburgh craft beer scene with the creation of Pittsburgh
Craft Beer Week; our inaugural event was held in April of 2012.
The 2012 PCBW was an unmitigated success, logging over 300 craft beer
focused events all over the area through the 10 day celebration ranging from free
tasting and samplings to full blown dinners and specialty events. The feedback
was overall great and we look forward to improving PCBW as we roll into our
second year. Our first year brought over $3 million dollars into the local economy
and we are set to do the same, if not more, as we work on the 2013 Pittsburgh
Craft Beer Week, April 19-27 2013, to make it better than the last.
Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week was a success due to the work and passion of all of
our volunteers, participants and sponsors. Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week created
collaboration among the breweries, distributors, bottle shops and restaurants, all
of who have made an important commitment to supporting craft beer awareness
in the Pittsburgh region. This was accomplished by planning, arranging and
sponsoring events and even brewing several collaboration beers for Pittsburgh
Craft Beer Week. By joining the Pittsburgh Craft Beer Alliance as a member, you
can make an important contribution to this movement. The Pittsburgh Craft Beer
Alliance needs members who are committed to making the event a success and
by educating the region about our craft beer movement.
