Why You Should Go:

Because who wouldn’t want to sip refreshing brews on a crisp autumn night inside an 18th-century fort?

Take a trip through 200-plus years of beer history at the Fort Pitt Museum’s 21+ after-hours event. Sample libations from Arsenal Cider House & Wine Cellar, Helltown, ShuBrew, Spoonwood and Voodoo and munch on goodies from The Pretzel Shop.

Forget beer pong, play 18th-century bar games and take a lantern tour of Point State Park after dark with Jessica Rohrdanz. Learn about the early days of beer-making in Pittsburgh during a presentation by Michael Burke.

Brew fans can also explore interactive displays and the new exhibit, From Maps to Mermaids: Carved Powder Horns in Early America.
