ABOUT THE BLOCK HOUSE BREWING COMPANY
Founded in 2014, in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA, the Block House Brewing Company is an ode to the city’s rich living-history. The historic brewery has survived the Civil War, Prohibition and the Great Flood of 1936. Every brick, slate, and block of the brewery was meticulously crafted and carefully placed to endure the test of time. The brewery channels the same methodical approach to crafting its beer. The brewery’s line-up includes a Pumpkin Ale, Octoberfest, Summer Break and Double Chocolate Bock Seasonals. In early November, the brewery is introducing a full-year IPA – only available now at CONSOL Energy Center and Heinz Field in draught – available in bottles and draught.
