The rehabbed Pennsylvania Building has rescued key vendors from the now closed Pittsburgh Public Market and it’s about to host more.
Area BRGR restaurants are adding a Rare Ale.
That’s the name of a new exclusive brew the local restaurant group commissioned Full Pint Brewing Co. to make.
Brewer Barrett Goddard says the name came from the color inside a rare-cooked burger. This traditional ale is reddish, brewed with several malts and Warrior hops to 5.4 percent alcohol by volume and 23 International Bitterness Units.
The beer is starting to show up on tap at BRGR locations this week, but the big reveal is set for Monday at the Downtown BRGR at 535 Liberty Ave. A ceremonial keg tapping is set for 6 p.m. Representatives of the North Huntingdon/North Versailles brewery will talk about the beer and give away swag.
BRGR executive chef and partner Brian Pekarcik said, “For the last couple years we’ve been looking for a way to bring our own beer to life.”
Earlier this year, local Burgh’ers restaurants started making and serving its own beers.
