This week(end) in Pittsburgh: Three Rivers Arts Fest returns & a deep dive into all 18 city pools

A look at Pittsburgh’s upcoming live music performances, beer that happens to be gluten-free and a documentary on upcycled chandeliers.

Our weekly beer pick is Citra Sippin’ Pale Ale from Aurochs.

Did you know that Pittsburgh is home to one of only a handful of gluten-free breweries in the country?

You asked, we listened. Sunny Side Up Brunch is back Sunday, June 23.

Pittsburgh Sandwich Society will be serving up its breakfast specialties paired with a Grist House beer. Your $10 ticket gets you a menu item of your choice and a beer.
