East End Brewing Company
December 9
12 — 5 p.m.

Calling all procrastinators, last-minute shoppers and 11th-hour elves to the East End Brewing Company.

Pittsburgh’s go-to spot for fresh, locally-produced beer since 2004, the Larimer-based brewery invites you to imbibe — and shop — local at the holiday edition of its Crafts and Drafts market.

More than 14 Pittsburgh-based art and craft vendors will be on-site selling their handmade wares right inside the brewery space, where you can also pick up East End merchandise. Featured makers include Alternate Histories, Black Brew Culture, Nick Caruso, Church Mouse Forge, Tui Pacifica and others.

Try a free sample of East End’s latest crisp winter beers and grab lunch at one of the participating food trucks and purveyors, such as La Palapa Mexican Gourmet Kitchen and Leona’s Ice Cream.

Participate in hands-on activities led by Workshop PGH DIY School and Assemble, watch live outdoor blacksmith demonstrations and to listen to jolly holiday tunes.

Free to all ages, the event will also feature housemade root beer and ginger ale.

In addition to operating a brewery and pub at 147 Julius Street in Larimer, East End also runs a taproom
at 102 19th Street in the Strip District.
