If you read the Hop to it Microbrew Tour in the Post Gazette today, I have the answer to Tom Labanc’s question below. Also, see http://www.post-gazette.com/life/travel/2014/07/06/Hop-to-it-on-microbrew-tour/stories/201406270173 for the question.
This is a list of the breweries and Brewpubs that have opened since the 1980’s. All of these entries are breweries but some have a brewpub license that permits the sale of food and drink within the same licensed area. Essentially they are a combination of brewery and full service restaurant. You may be surprised the ones that do not have this license. Only licensed breweries are listed below.
