Update: Pittsburgh Breweries Offering Beer Delivery

We updated our local beer delivery guide to include a couple more breweries who are now offering to bring their beer straight to your doorstep.

December 1, 2020

ABV is our weekly series that highlights a different beer from a local Pittsburgh brewery every week. Check out our past picks here.


Updated Dec 1, 2020: With the recent surge in COVID-19 cases around Allegheny County, we know folks are taking the pandemic more seriously and opting to stay home. With that in mind, we thought it would be both timely and responsible to update our “local breweries who offer beer delivery” guide.

Beer friends! Many of you have reached out asking about delivery options from local breweries.

Well, we listened and decided to round up what’s available and from whom – specifically as it relates to beer delivery.

So, whether you’re preparing for a Zoom happy hour, or just having a beer with friends over FaceTime – here’s a look at how to get (local) beer delivered right to your doorstep.

ABV, volume LXIII

A couple of things to bear in mind as you place an order for (beer) delivery.

  • Be Patient: Many breweries are rolling out delivery for the first time and processes are being optimized / smoothed out with practice.
  • Check for Updates: Things change – sometimes daily. From beer inventory to delivery areas and statewide regulations – breweries have been posting updates on their respective Facebook and Instagram pages.

Pro Tip: Our friends at the Pittsburgh Brewers Guild are posting weekly updates from local breweries. They’ve built this page on their website dedicated to both curbside takeout AND delivery options from local breweries who are members of the guild.

Additionally, the Pittsburgh Brewers Guild Facebook page is a great resource for updates and local beer news.
