So lovely to celebrate with Rachel and Blair at their post-wedding wedding party this weekend! I don't know many couples who complement each other more than these two. If anything can be said about them, it's that they're both makers in every sense of the word, and the life they build together is going to have a meaningful and positive impact on many more people than just the two of them.
Breweries are appearing in Pittsburgh at a much faster rate than I'm able to visit them, so despite Brew Gentlemen (in Braddock) being one of the first-wave local taprooms that's been around for more than three years, I hadn't made my way out there until just yesterday. They brew all types of beers, but their signature style is the unfiltered IPA. I sampled two of those yesterday, including their staple General Braddock's IPA, as well as an unfiltered pale ale. All three were excellent, and they shared an earthy, grassy profile more common in English style IPAs than the floral and citric American styles that are so pervasive in local breweries today.
Reveling in remodeled spaces with good friends (+good food, good beer, good dog.)
