My #PCBW: Day 1

Craft Beer Academy PCBW Day 1


There’s a lot to do during Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week this year, as you can pretty easily see by checking out the calendar, but the thing you can’t see in a list of events is how the events really go down.

For that, you need feet on the ground, checking the venues out and trying the beers so you know what you’re expecting when you get your hands on them. This is why I’m making sure to visit at least one PCBW event every day and recording it here so you can see how things go and what at least one person’s experience was. Look for this recap every day for all of Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week 2014.

All these posts are going up over on Craft Beer Academy, so check out day 1 and check back for more each day. While you’re at it, check out my other posts about Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week too.


My #PCBW: Day 1 – Collaboration Beers, Good Pizza, and some Church.

Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week 2014 Media Day

Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week (PCBW) 2014 Media Day will take place on April 16, 2014 from 11:30AM to 1:00PM at Penn Brewery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week begins on Friday, April 25, 2014 with many events in store for the Pittsburgh region. After two successful years, Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week is back for a third year of events and activities.  PCBW will begin on Friday, April 25, 2014 and conclude on Sunday, May 4, 2014. Thanks to the help and involvement from the community, Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week in both 2012 and 2013 brought nearly $4 million dollars to the Pittsburgh region with over 400 events each year.  We encourage all local media to attend our media day event to learn more about the events, taste our collaboration beers, and interview the local craft beer community.

The Pittsburgh Craft Beer Alliance (PCBA) is the organization behind Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week. The Pittsburgh Craft Beer Alliance is a non-profit 501(c)(6) organization overseen by a board that consists of brewery managers, restaurant managers, craft beer industry employees, and others to help promote and raise awareness for Pittsburgh craft beer. Overseen by this board, the PCBA was created to promote and enhance the thriving Pittsburgh craft beer scene with the creation of Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week. The inaugural event for PCBW was held in April of 2012 and since then the week and the alliance have continued to grow in their ability to share craft beer knowledge and awareness throughout the Pittsburgh area.
