Spring Hill history // Read local authors // Beer delivered to your door

And the CatVideoFest is back and available to watch in your home.

by Lindsay Patross | April 16, 2020

Another week of #StayHomePGH in the books. Folks have been asking us about curbside takeout and delivery, specifically beer delivery. Welp, we did some research and our handy guide walks through how you can get (local) beer delivered to your doorstep, straight from Pittsburgh breweries. We’ve also got a podcast episode for the book lovers, and a mini-documentary about what’s going on up in Spring Hill.

WAY, WAY UP: The WBU is where Spring Hill comes together
On Pittsburgh’s Northside exists the hilltop community of Spring Hill. Our video spotlights the epicenter of this neighborhood: the Workingmen’s Beneficial Union, or WBU – a multi-purpose building that is home to several local businesses.

FUR REAL: The CatVideoFest is back
Missed the fest on the big screen? Need some more cat videos in your life. For a pay-what-you-want donation to the Carnegie Science Center, you can watch a special selection of the CatVideoFest in your home.

BREW TO YOU: Guide to Pittsburgh Beer Delivery
We rounded up 10 local breweries offering beer delivery, including order minimums, eligible ZIP codes and what to expect for delivery fees.

FOR THE BOOK LOVERS: Kris Collins is our podcast guest
We’re thrilled to welcome local author, poet, publisher and columnist Kristofer Collins onto our latest episode of The Slaw. Tune in for his local picks and a walkthrough of Pittsburgh’s literary scene.
