A couple of months ago, the Hop Culture team announced our biggest East Coast festival yet: Juicy Brews Valentine’s Day. The idea was to orchestrate several world-class events hosted by local businesses in Pittsburgh, PA, and cap off the week with a hallmark festival.

Below, you’ll find a full schedule of events for the week leading up to the Juicy Brews Valentine’s Day craft beer festival in Pittsburgh. We’ve limited attendance for the events so they don’t feel cramped so get your tickets soon. We hope you’ll be able to join us in a celebration of Pittsburgh and craft beer!
