Penn Brewery tells the story of Pittsburgh's European immigrants through our craft beers and homemade fare. Pittsburgh's oldest and largest brewery, Penn is housed in the mid nineteenth - century landmark E&O Brewery Building, in the North Side's Deutschtown neighborhood.

Penn specializes in award - winning craft beers, all brewed on-site and serves traditional "Euro - Pittsburgh" dishes including wurst, schnitzel, pierogi, and goulash, along with some contemporary favorites, in its restaurant. Penn has four unique reception spaces and can accommodate private groups of up to 130 guests for receptions, business meetings, and lunch and dinner events.

Main Bierhalle - Our main dining room is designed in the style of a real German beer hall, featuring wood paneling, long, handmade, solid wood tables and benches, and a copper - topped bar. The room features space for live entertainment, as well as a direct view of the brewhouse so guests can watch the brewers at work.

The Ratskeller - A cozy space decorated with rich dark wood paneling, colorful stained - glass windows, and a direct view of our large beer tanks in the Lager Keller. The Ratskeller also features its own private bar. Seats up to 60 guests.

The Biergarten - This unique outdoor space boasts a quaint European feel, with its cobblestone courtyard, wrought iron gates, and flower boxes. The Biergarten is available for events from April through October and features its own private bar and space for live entertainment. Seats up to 85 guests, or a larger number for a stand - up reception.

The Eisenhalle - This spacious room, designed in the style of an industrial loft, pays tribute to Pittsburgh's more recent Renaissance history and features beautiful views of the city's skyline. Eisenhalle is equipped to host cocktail parties, buffet - style meals, and business meetings, and features its own private bar. Eisenhalle can accommodate up to 130 standing or 75 seated guests.
