Britsburgh 2016 – Warm beer, not here

Beer seller, Pittsburgh Pirates game

British-American Connections Pittsburgh (BACP) celebrates and remembers the many Pittsburgh – UK links (since 1758) and helps build new connections and memories. Kevin Coleman Alliantus’ founder is a board member of the BAPC and Roger Cranville, OBE is the President. 

The second annual Britsburgh Festival, from September 6th through September 11th 2016 will celebrate the long-standing historic ties between the United Kingdom and Southwestern PA.

What is it?

Britsburgh adds a unique roving pop-up regional event to the city’s calendar contributing to the growing vitality and global feel of the new Pittsburgh.  “Watch out for those flags and Tea Shirts again this year” said Tony Battle, also on the marketing team – concluding that “this year Britsburgh will be bigger, better, and even more enjoyable for all.”

Tell me more about the beer

Britsburgh will start on September 6th with a huge party and celebration at the East End Brewing Brewery, where the first ever keg of Britsburgh Ale will be tapped with much pomp and ceremony befitting a brew made from all UK ingredients (except the water)!  East End’s Britsburgh Ale will be available in up to 50 pubs, bars and restaurants for the Britsburgh Festival thanks to Vecenie Distribution.

“We are very excited to be Britsburgh partners and sponsors again this year – launching a great new craft beer made right here in the Burgh for the Britsburgh Festival with the master craft brewers at East End Brewing is a first,” said Ken Vecenie top man at Vecenie Distributing.

When is it again?

The second annual Britsburgh Festival is from September 6th through September 11th 2016
