In May, the Larimer brewery launched the program designed to introduce a beer named after each of Pittsburgh’s 90-plus neighborhoods.
The inaugural brew was Allentown, described as an Imperial Shandy Ale at 7.5% alcohol by volume brewed with locally sourced tea and lemon juice from Prestogeorge Coffee and Tea Company.
Costs for the beers range between $12 and $20 for a four-pack depending upon the ingredients and the brewing process, owner Scott Smith told the Tribune-Review in a previous story.
The company described the Troy Hill beer as “a 4.1% ABV sour cherry Gose that balances tart and fresh fruit flavor.” It continues the brewery’s summer “Gosapalooza” tradition. The brew will be released from 5 to 7 p.m. at Pear and the Pickle on Aug. 9 on the North Side.
On Aug. 13, the brewery is partnering with Repair the World Pittsburgh to release East Liberty, a “6.0% ABV cream ale. People can learn about the project at Sheridan Avenue Orchard and Garden in East Liberty from 5 to 7 p.m. They can also find out about volunteer opportunities with Repair the World.
Smith said all cans will look alike because that unites the city neighborhoods. The cans have a city map with an arrow pointing to the location. The colors of the cans will change. Smith said they are committed to making 92 different beers.
The plan is to create these individual flavors over two or three years.
Smith said they want to coordinate introducing the beers with events or happenings in the specific neighborhood. Some beers will be made before a neighborhood is selected and vice versa.
