Penn Brewery

Welcome to Penn Brewery, where our craft beers, homemade fare, and historic setting tell the story of Pittsburgh’s European immigrant heritage.

Although the modern-day Penn Brewery was started in 1986, its roots actually lie far back in 1848, with the Eberhart and Ober families, Germans who settled in the Deutschtown neighborhood in the City of Allegheny, now Pittsburgh’s NorthSide. Eberhart and Ober opened three breweries on the site where Penn exists today, and three of the original E&O brewery buildings remain.

These buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and boast many fascinating and unique architectural features. Perhaps the most notable of these is a labyrinth of stone caves and tunnels which was constructed to chill, or “lager,” barrels of beer in the days before refrigeration became commonplace.
