Six places for to-go beer in Pittsburgh, since onsite drinking is prohibited night before Thanksgiving

Due to the rapid spread of coronavirus in Pennsylvania, Gov. Tom Wolf announced yesterday that bars and restaurants will be barred from selling alcohol for on-site consumption starting Wed., Nov. 25 at 5 p.m. and ending the next day on Thanksgiving Day at 8 a.m. It’s basically a “Blackout Wednesday” ban, as the day before Thanksgiving is typically the busiest and most crowded day of the year for bars, and the last thing Pennsylvania needs right now is crowded indoor spaces with people loudly congregating without masks.

But this doesn’t mean yinz still can’t drink on Wednesday. A good way to support bars, restaurants, and breweries is to purchase some to-go alcohol, which is still permitted all throughout Wed., Nov. 25. Check your favorite haunt and see what their to-go options are.

If you are looking to drink a lot of fresh beer, filling up a growler is probably the best option, and some Pittsburgh-area breweries are actively encouraging it. Stop by, wear your mask, and continue the tradition of Drinksgiving. Just do so from the safety of your home.
Here are six local Pittsburgh breweries that are advertising growler fills and to-go sales on Wed., Nov. 25:
