Drink in PNC Park with All-Star Beer, Wine, and Cocktail Festival

The All-Star Craft Beer, Wine, and Cocktail Festival is set for June 29 at PNC Park on the North Shore.

What’s better in the summertime than heading to the ballpark and having a nice, cold beer?

How about unlimited samples of hundreds of craft beers, wines, and cocktail brands?

Experience everything wonderful about Pittsburgh’s PNC Park — without fear of the home team losing — at the All-Star Craft Beer, Wine, and Cocktail Festival set for June 29. The event will take place inside PNC Park and on Federal Street on the North Shore.

Now in its second year, the festival is expanding to two sessions — 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. and 7-11 p.m.

Because it’s all to do with alcohol, it’s a 21-and-over-only event. And for the $44.95 admission, you get the unlimited samples, a commemorative glass, ability to walk the bases and the warning track, a change to take a photo in the dugout, a pair of vouchers for tickets to a Pirates game this season, live entertainment, games (giant Jenga, Connect Four, cornhole), pierogi races, and giveaways. All that, and the Pirate Parrot will be hanging out.

The VIP admission ($59.95) gets you in a half-hour earlier for each session, along with access to exclusive samples and other areas of the park (including some private restrooms and lounge areas). Then there’s the Ultimate VIP package ($79.95), which adds on access to a rooftop lounge, meet-and-greet with Pirates alumni, more exclusive samples (“the good stuff,” the release claims), and an event T-shirt.

It’s a rain-or-shine event, so be prepared. The usual PNC Park rules apply, so you are allowed to bring one bag into the ballpark (purses, fanny packs, backpacks, etc.), provided the bag is soft-sided and 16” X 16” X 8” or smaller.

Any questions about the event can be addressed here on the event site. Tickets can be purchased here.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
