Penn Brewery

Penn Brewery tells the story of Pittsburgh’s European immigrants through its craft beer and homemade cuisine. Pittsburgh’s oldest and largest brewery, Penn is housed in the mid nineteenth-century landmark E&O Brewery Building in the North Side’s Deutschtown neighborhood, which was settled by German immigrants. Penn has been producing high-end craft beers since 1986, specializing in authentic, award-winning German-style beers brewed in the tradition of these immigrants, according to the strict quality standards of Reinheitsgebot.  Our beers’ great taste comes from real German hops and two-row barley, with no added corn or rice fillers.

Penn Brewery’s restaurant serves traditional “Euro-Pittsburgh” fare including wurst, schnitzel, pierogi, and goulash alongside our beers. In the spirit of our classic Pittsburgh theme, our menu emphasizes fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. Penn is open for lunch and dinner - Monday through Saturday, 11:00 am to midnight and Sunday from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm - and regularly hosts live entertainment.  A lovely cobblestone biergarten is open seasonally.  Private party bookings are also available.
