Best Pittsburgh Breweries To Take Dad On Father’s Day

By Jessica Wasik

Father’s Day is June 18, a day to celebrate your father in all his glory. What better way to tell Dad you appreciate him than with a cold, locally brewed beer. Pittsburgh is known for its fantastic bar scene, but it boasts an even better group of local breweries, which break away from the same old national beer brands to bring you some refreshingly unique flavors. Choose one of these five Pittsburgh breweries and raise a glass to the number-one man in your life.
