Penn Brewery - Outside ViewTicky Tocky, Ticky Tocky…Oi! Oi! Oi! No, I don’t have turrets. If you’ve ever been to a Penn Brewery Oktoberfest, you know exactly what I’m talking about. The Pennsylvania Brewing Co. was the first craft brewhouse in all of Pennsylvania and is still a big player in the micro brewing industry.

It’s easy to be taken aback while walking through the giant iron gate at the main entrance of the Brewery in Pittsburgh’s Northside. The buildings and surrounding offices were once part of the Eberhardt and Ober Brewing Co. and are listed on the National Register of Historic Sites.

Go for the beer. Stay for the people. The beer is the highlight of a Penn Brewery visit. They have won numerous awards in beer excellence at The Great American Beer Festival, World Beer Cup and others. Andy Rich, Nich Rosich and Rick Brown make up the highly decorated and experienced team of brewers.
