“Good People,” good beer

“Good People,” a comedy by David Lindsey Abaire, runs through the end of the week at the O’Reilly theater.  And on Friday, there will be a special night featuring the beer of Great Lakes Brewing, and food from some big names: Cookies & Critters, On Nom Bake Studio and the south side Pretzel Shop.

Tickets are $25 ahead of time, or $30 at the door.  Doors open at 7 p.m. for beer and food and the curtain rises at 8 p.m.

I’m not sure what beers they’ll have from Great Lakes, but I like pretty much everything they make (plus winter beers are my favorite, so it’s a good time to drink), so I’m excited.

Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week

Yesterday, Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week kicked off.  Penn, Church Brew Works and Rock Bottom are each making special beers for the events and venues all across the region will be having special events and tastings all week long.

Last night, I headed to my local bar for their Founder’s event, where they had a tapping of their incredible Breakfast Stout.  I left very happy (I haven’t had this awesome beer in a long time) and a free Founder’s glass (and of course, a Penguins win)!

Untappd is also getting into the spirit of the week, offering a special edition badge for anyone who checks in at two officially participating venues during the week.  You have a ton of choices, so get out there and find some of the awesome places in Pittsburgh that celebrate craft beer the entire year!

My friends and I had been using Beerby, which is another beer app, developed and owned locally.  At one point they announced they were closing, so we all moved over to Untappd.  Local money came in and Beerby is still operating, so take your pick.  Beerby has cooler badges (they are all badgers) but Untappd has more features.  Either way though, they are both great, free apps for both Android and iOS to find great beer near you.

I’ll be back with more, and hopefully I can try some of the three special beers, and I’ll check in throughout the week.  Enjoy the brews, be safe, and find some new craft beer around Pittsburgh!
