Mike’s Beer Bar to Celebrate Pittsburgh Breweries
Mike’s Beer Bar celebrates Pittsburgh craft breweries. Mike’s is turning over their taps to Pittsburgh area breweries for the ENTIRE month of July.
“Western Pennsylvania has a long-standing brewing tradition that I wanted to recognize by devoting all of our 80 taps to the great craft beers of the Pittsburgh region. A day or two wasn’t enough time to recognize all the great beer being produced, so we decided to give them the whole month of July” says Mike Sukitch, owner of Mike’s Beer Bar.
With the explosion of craft breweries in the area, it is getting increasingly harder to physically visit each brewery. Mike hopes that bringing a large number of them under the same roof will enable people to try more and different styles of beer. Many of the breweries are creating special collaboration beers that will be unique for the event.
Some of the Breweries include:
11th Hour Brewing, East End Brewing Co., Spoonwood Brewing, Strange Roots Experimental Ales, Helltown Brewing, Arsenal Brewing, North Country Brewing Company, Yellow Bridge Brewing, Levity Brewing Co., Whitehorse Brewing, Petrucci Brothers Brewing, Noble Stein Brewing Company, Hop Farm Brewing Company, Insurrection AleWorks, Rivertown Brewing, Four Points Brewing, Enix Brewing Company, Butler Brew Works, Cinderlands Beer Co., 412 Brewery
…and many, many more, plus a gluten free beer from Aurochs Brewing.

Special events will include:
• Meet the Brewers Night
• Pittsburgh Beer and Food Tasting
• Pittsburgh Beer University – a tasting and learning event
• Pittsburgh Brewery giveaways all month long
About Pennsylvania Craft Beer:
As defined by the Brewers Association, craft beer has a flavor derived from traditional or
innovative brewing ingredients and fermentation. A craft beer brewer cannot produce
more than 6 million barrels of beer annually.
Pennsylvania is ranked No. 1 in the country in one craft beer category — production. The
state’s 354 breweries produced more than 3.7 million barrels of craft beer last year, more than in any other state in the nation, according to statistics compiled by the Colorado-based Brewers Association, a national trade group. The number of craft beer breweries puts Pennsylvania sixth in the nation (TribLive, 2019).
