Vote for the winner of the Final Pittsburgh Brewery Bracket

Did your favorite make it into the last matchup? It’s up to you, our brew-drinking readers, to choose who holds the title of Ultimate Pittsburgh Brewery by The Incline.


Meet your final brewery match in Pittsburgh: Eleventh Hour Brewing vs. Grist House Craft Brewery! East End Brewing Co. and Dancing Gnome Brewery really do have a good fight; the race came out on a lead of only around 20 votes.

Impressive! We have come a long way since the first 32 nominations. It was fun watching The Incline readers vote and passionately interact with our bracket. We’re not here to find the “best” Pittsburgh brewery, because “best” means different things to everyone. But we’re here to highlight the breweries that Pittsburghers really love and which you think best represent our city.

No matter who wins, we hope this staple inspires you to have a refreshing beer with your buds on and support the great brewers we have here at the ‘Burgh.

So who will win? Will it be Grist House Craft Brewery in Millvale with its limitless flavors, charming lighted terrace and exquisite selection of food trucks? Or will it be? Eleventh Hour Brew Co. in Lawrenceville with its popular IPA monthly releases, cool industry vibes and a lovely married couple?

The answer is determined by your votes – VThe application for this round ends on Monday, August 2nd at 9 a.m.

🍕Thanks to our bracket Sponsor, Caliente Pizza & Drafthouse, for helping us to give some love to the best hop growers in Tahn!
