Spring Hill Brewing…
...was started by Greg, who began brewing out of his kitchen in Bloomfield over 10 years ago. After refining his recipes and finding the perfect location in Pittsburgh's North Side, he decided to expand his brewing efforts to a full-time operation.
Spring Hill Brewing opened July 2018, operating out of a former social club that was founded in roughly 1900. The Workingmen's Beneficial Union (or WBU for short) was a community space for German immigrants and once housed a ballroom and a six-lane bowling alley. It closed in 1999 and suffered a lot of damage while shuttered. A three-year (and counting!) renovation has brought it back to life, and we are proud to be serving our fresh farmhouse ales out of the new taproom.
We currently brew beer on a nano scale, producing about 2 bbl or 70 gallons per batch. Brewing exclusively session ales in the farmhaus-style using a mixed culture of lively and flavorful yeast strains, Greg likes mixing and matching different cultures to produce complex and unique beers that typically hover around 6% ABV. We usually offer five flagships and three rotating seasonals -- some are hoppy, some are sour, and some taste like a sourdough pretzel. What does that mean? You'll have to come visit us for a taste.
Joining us most weekends during high season (summer/fall) is the Asado Wagon food truck by the fiery folks at Gaucho, serving their famous barbecued and smoked meats! And their veggies are great, too. Click here for their schedule to make sure you #catchthewagon, because they’re busy and they’re mobile.
Sharing these 130+ year old walls is the WBU Event Venue, who have worked so hard to update this historic piece of Pittsburgh. There are two large event spaces, so parties and weddings of nearly any size or budget can be held using the taproom, event space, patio or spacious beer garden. Select the rustic multi-purpose hall, or fancy it up with the massive ballroom. It’s always a happy time when we, the Asado Wagon, and the WBU get together and work on making your big event dreams come true.
