The brewery and brewpub are located in Pittsburgh; housed in the same building where the historic Eberhardt Brewery once existed. No detail was overlooked from its solid copper brewhouse imported from the motherland, to its authentic German fermentation and aging tanks, filtration equipment, kegging and bottling equipment. Another unique facet to Pennsylvania Brewing's success is that the brewery imports all of its ingredients, uses German recipes, brewing methods and even has a German brewmaster! Caution: Reader may suddenly have the urge to grill up some bratwurst!
All beers are made in strict accordance to the German beer purity law know as "Rheinheitsgebot" which means that only the four classic ingredients are used in their beer: malted barley and/or wheat, hops, yeast and of course water. It is strictly prohibited to use such common adjuncts as corn and rice. You won't find the words "preservatives" or "stabilizers" in the vocabulary of Penn's brewmaster. And you thought the Trappist Monks had it bad! What you have before you is just authentic, honest, all natural beer made the way it's made in Germany.
Our beer panel had an excruciating time this month selecting only two styles from the numerous selections offered up by Pennsylvania Brewing Company. In addition to the Penn Pilsner and Penn Dark that you'll have the chance to try this month, the brewery produces a number of unusual lagers and ales including a classic German Pilsner, Oktoberfest, Bavarian Hefeweizen, and a Munich Helles style beer.
