Brew: Museum of Beer to open online exhibit this month
Remember Brew: The Museum of Beer? It was going to be a national attraction here in Pittsburgh.
That was in August of 2016, and the folks behind the effort acknowledged that they had a lot of work to do. About two years later, the project’s principals were awarded a $59,700 grant from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to start with an exhibit in a Downtown storefront, but that effort never found a home for reasons including COVID-19’s arrival in the spring.
Brew founder Joe McAllister says that later this month, the exhibit will launch online, a move OK’d by the PLCB and inspired, as he put it, “by the creativity and perseverance of the region’s breweries and restaurants.”
The exhibit, “The Story of Beer in Pennsylvania,” tells that story from Penn’s Colony to the present, with video interviews of brewers, historians, collectors and craft beer pioneers such as brewer Carol Stoudt. Viewers can click on points on a timeline and watch more in a gallery.

Mozart’s Favorite Summer Beer, Lost for 100 Years, Is Resurrected in Denver
I’m told fans of historic beer styles have been waiting a long time for the return of Horner Bier. Sure, why not, I’m always ready to try something new and this has a great back story.
Seedstock Brewery has resuscitated Horner Bier, which can now join the ranks of German styles like Merseburger, Broyhan, and Berliner Braunbier. Andreas Krennmair, author of a book on how to brew forgotten Old World beer styles, says he hasn’t yet seen a commercial version of Horner beer. “It seems to be a beer style that sounds interesting and unusual, but at the same time is probably too strange for brewers to even attempt to brew it,” Krennmair says.
Really? Has he seen the American Craft Beer market? Voodoo Donut? Oyster Stout? Beard Beer? Need I go on? If this is too strange I’ve got to try it.
