To honor Pittsburgh's rich history of Rye Whiskey and ciders we are taking the Sunday Funday Series to Wigle Whiskey! Join PYP as we enjoy drinks in the Repeal Room before the Steeler game (4:25 kickoff).

During the event our members will receive $1 off all drink. There will also be food specials for all attendees!

American whiskey was born in Pittsburgh! Throughout the 1700 and 1800s, Western Pennsylvania was the epicenter of American Whiskey production. Wigle is named for one of those pioneering Pennsylvania distillers. In the 1790s, Phillip Wigle defended his right to distill in a tussle with a tax collector and unwittingly helped spark the Whiskey Rebellion, which pitted Western Pennsylvania distillers against George Washington's troops. He was sentenced to hang for treason but was ultimately pardoned by Washington. By 1808, Allegheny County was producing half a barrel of whiskey for every man, woman and child living in America. The gold standard of American whiskey was a spicy, earthy rye whiskey called Monongahela Rye. We aim to bring back this tradition with organic regional grains milled on site, then fermented and distilled in our copper pot still in the first distillery in the City of Pittsburgh since Prohibition.

The Sunday Funday Series looks to showcase Pittsburgh's outstanding, locally owned watering holes. Each month we will visit a location in the Greater Pittsburgh Region where our members will be treated to drink and food specials! There might even be a surprise gift at each event! Make sure you attend all the events in order to collect them all!
