Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh: almost there...

Just heard from HB Pittsburgh mahoff Nick Ellison: they've got their occupancy permit paperwork cleared -- finally! -- and started staff training on-site this afternoon. "The soft opening will occur at 3:00 p.m. Monday, March 16, and the grand opening is still scheduled for Wednesday April 29," he told me. Wish I could join you, have fun!

Couldn't figure out why Phillip was singing praises to Augustiner in a post about Hofbräu..?

Lew Bryson said...

It's an old Austrian drinking song. Not about Augustiner, it's supposedly about an old Viennese street poet named Augustin.

If I'm killing your joke, I apologize!

Won't be there on the 16th, but I've got Pens tickets for St. Patty's Day so I plan to check it out then.

My beer that day will be golden, not green, and that's the way I like it.

(By the way Lew, did you hear that the WV Craft Beer bill passed the House 79-18?)

Hope this opening date sticks. Thanks for keeping track of this.

Sounds like we're going to have a lot of happy German, and German beer lovers come the 16th of March!

Only one day to go!!!

It's open. I was the first one in the door, but managed to skip the guy from the Post-Gazette with the camera by immediately slipping over to the bar.
