Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week is back on tap: After taking 2019 off, the next official celebration of local suds is now set for the fall of 2020.

The Pittsburgh Brewers Guild (PBG), a group that includes Allegheny County-based craft beer makers, will relaunch the festival thanks to a $75,000 grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The money will also bolster business by helping PBG update its Pittsburgh Brewery Guide and website.

Exact details for the 2020 Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week aren’t available yet. But since its inception in 2011, events have included happy hours, educational workshops, collaboration beverages, beer dinners and the Brewers’ Olympics.

“We’re still early in the process, but PBG member breweries will be involved and we’re excited about the potential opportunities to partner with craft beer retailers and distributors,” a PBG representative said in a Facebook post. “We will talk about those opportunities in the early part of 2020 in more detail. Stay tuned.”

We’ll raise a pint to that!
