A celebration of
Pittsburgh's exceptional adult beverage culture.
October 12-20, 2018
To say the Pittsburgh libations scene has experienced tremendous growth and evolution in the past five years would be an understatement. Breweries, wineries, distilleries, meaderies, cider houses, and more have opened their doors and ushered us in with enthusiasm. It is in this spirit that we introduce Pittsburgh Libations Week!
Pittsburgh Libations Week is a year-long highlight of our region’s entire adult beverage culture. We strive to increase education for libations enthusiasts, raise awareness of beer, spirits, wine, mead, cider, and all forms of potables in our community, and celebrate the efforts of every hard-working man and woman who serve as the lifeblood of this thriving industry. Most importantly, we're working with Lending Hearts to donate portions of proceeds raised from partnerships, events, and fundraisers.
We're here all year because you're here all year. PLW is operated by industry professionals with a vested interest in the progression of adult beverages throughout our region. We're committed to promoting businesses, events, ideals, education, camaraderie, and community.
Our year of championing Pittsburgh's libations scene will culminate in a week-long series of events dedicated to educating the community in order to enhance their appreciation of what's in their glass and have a ton of fun while we do it!
Throughout the year, PLW will host various events in and around Pittsburgh. We strive to entertain and educate.
