Brewpubs in Pittsburgh and/or Allegheny County
(These appear in the above List of Breweries)
These breweries were licensed from 1986 on.


Brewpubs are a combination brewery and restaurant. In-as-much as they appear to be one entity they are in fact two separate entities: a restaurant company and a brewing company. On January 13, 2015, the list below was compared against the Pa LCB list.

Notes:
The breweries listed prior to 2012 may have had a brewery and brewery-pub license but they are no longer in the Pa LCB database. Some of the breweries that do not have a brewery-pub license may have had one at one time, but are now only licensed to operate as a brewery. The restaurant, if there is one, is licensed separately.

Allegheny Brewery & Pub and Penn Brewery are one-in-the-same as they were under the same ownership with only the name of the restaurant division being changed. I have to assume that Allegheny Brewery & Pub was a brewery-pub as that is how Tom Pastorius promoted it as well as seeking legislative change to operate as such.
