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 is the city’s biker-friendly brewery, and a proud Bike Pittsburgh business member! Our location is a great starting and stopping point for rides along the river trails, which are easily accessible via the adjacent pedestrian bridge over Route 28. We'll be happy to fill your water bottle for free, and we keep a tire pump, patch kit and tools available for quick minor repairs in case of a breakdown.
