Which of these 32 delightfully refreshing Pittsburgh breweries should move on to our Sweet Sixteen Round?
After a long, hot, hard work week, is there anything better than a cold, crisp beer? We don’t think so.
Whether you’re passionate about a pilsner, interested only in an IPA, or salivating for a sour — summertime is the best time to get your sippin’ on.
Support your favorite local hops-slinging shops around the Steel City by voting for your favorite brewery in our Ultimate Pittsburgh Brewery Bracket, which highlights 32 local spots throughout the region.
As a reminder, this March Madness-style bracket was decided by our readers, for our readers. So use this opportunity to revisit some of your favorite Pittsburgh breweries (and maybe try some new ones!).

🍕 + 🍺 = ❤️ Thanks again to our bracket sponsor, Caliente Pizza & Draft House. Mark your calendars because Caliente is coming to Sewickley and Crafton this fall.
Here’s a quick primer on how our brackets work:
Who lands on a bracket?
The original 32 slots are based on reader nominations and staff research. There’s a nomination period before each bracket to collect recommendations on who to include. There is no fee to participate, and you can’t buy a spot in the bracket.
Keep on votin’.
Who advances in each round is strictly based on the number of votes for that round. We’ve had some tight match-ups, so every vote counts! Yes, you can vote more than once in each round.
How can I sponsor a bracket?
So you want a sponsor spot like Caliente’s Pizza and Drafthouse? Our sales team works with companies who want to sponsor brackets and related events. For more information, contact Benjamin Chaffee.
