Have a Little Fun with Your Work Team – and Give Back to the Community – with Penn Brewery’s Guest Bartender Program

HOW IT WORKS: A designated manager or director of your organization goes into action behind the bar at Penn Brewery’s Northside location, pouring and serving his/her team members, along with other brewery guests, fabulous Penn beer and other adult beverages.  For each beverage purchased, Penn will make a donation to the charity of the team’s choice. It’s a great way to have a little fun and give back to the community!

  • If the event is scheduled during Penn’s regular Happy Hour timeframe (4-6pm), Penn will offer $2 off draft beers. 

  • We can work with you and organize giveaways that you think would be appealing to our team, friends, and anyone who you would like to attend.


  • We recommend scheduling as an after-work Happy Hour, or as an evening event lasting one or two hours.  Guest bartender events can be booked at the main Brewery Monday-Thursday.

  • Please contact us at (412) 237-9400 ext. 112 or at,, or complete our online form to request a guest bartender spot. Please book at least two weeks in advance.

  • Penn will promote your guest bartender and charitable donation program on our social media.  We recommend that the guest bartender also promote to his/her team or organization members.

  • There is no charge to the guest bartender or organization to participate in the Guest Bartender program.

  • We will offer the guest bartender a $25 gift certificate for use on their next visit to Penn Brewery. We will also offer them one (1) free “shift” beer at the end of their time.

  • Please note that unless you specifically wish to restrict the event to your own list of guests, you will be sharing our space with other Penn patrons.  If you wish to reserve the brewery exclusively for your group as a private event, please visit our Private Party Page for more information and guidelines.
