Is Fort Pitt beer still made?

Answered by Frank Schwing

Fort Pitt beer is still being made today. The original Fort Pitt Brewery was established in 1765 at Fort Pitt, and although it closed in 1957, it was revived in 2014 by Mark Dudash. The brewery has been producing Fort Pitt Ale, which is an ale made with two row malt, caramel, and English hops.

I had the opportunity to try Fort Pitt Ale recently, and I must say, it was a delightful experience. The beer had a rich amber color, and the aroma was filled with hints of caramel and malt. The taste was balanced and smooth, with a slight sweetness from the caramel and a subtle hop bitterness.

What I found intriguing about Fort Pitt Ale is its connection to history. It’s fascinating to think that this beer is crafted in the spirit of the original brewery that operated more than two centuries ago. It’s like taking a sip of history and experiencing a taste that has been enjoyed by beer enthusiasts for generations.

I appreciate that Fort Pitt Brewing Company has stayed true to the traditional brewing methods and ingredients used in the original Fort Pitt Brewery. It shows a commitment to preserving the heritage and legacy of this iconic brand.

In addition to Fort Pitt Ale, I discovered that the brewery also produces other beers, although I haven’t had the chance to try them yet. I’m particularly curious about their other offerings and how they compare to Fort Pitt Ale in terms of flavor and quality.

I’m glad to know that Fort Pitt beer is still being made. It’s a testament to the enduring appeal and craftsmanship of this historic brand. I look forward to exploring more of their beers and continuing to appreciate the taste of Fort Pitt Ale.
