Grist House Craft Brewery In Millvale

Grist House Craft Brewery is a brewpub located in Millvale along E. Sherman St. They make a wide variety of hand-crafted seasonal beers for both onsite consumption and for local distribution in Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas. One of two locations (the other being in Collier Township) the Millvale location features a large lot and covered patio. Dogs are welcome too, but check their site for guidelines, and a variety of food trucks make routine pit stops at Grist House Craft Brewery throughout different days of the week. 

Interesting Facts About Grist House Craft Brewery

Grist House’s Millvale taproom has a long-standing reputation as being one of the dog-friendliest brewpub/taprooms in town. However, if you plan to bring along old Fido, you cannot have your dog on the patio, only in the spacious lot. They are not allowed in the brew rooms either. Heck, we don't want them lapping up all that beer. That is a job for the patrons, right?

On a hot Saturday night in June (Saturday, June 12, 2021), I traveled across the North Hills of Pittsburgh to Millvale to meet a friend for a late evening craft beer at the Grist House Craft Brewery. This day featured a nearby event, the Millvale Music Festival, which I intended to grace beforehand. That didn't happen. 

I won't get into details, but I have a relative that lives in Millvale, and when I was on the way to the festival, I saw him on his porch. Next thing you know, we're having a drink, and the music festival can wait until next time. However, there would be no missing my night at the Grist House Craft Brewery. 

First and foremost, I love craft beer, and the Grist House Craft Brewery is a Pittsburgh mecca for craft beer lovers. 

My friend was already waiting when I arrived. He had found a big barrel table recently vacated, and this was good luck as the spacious open lot of the Grist House Craft Brewery was filled with folks, mostly teeshirt and khaki shorts-wearing everyday folks, younger for sure, and some with dogs leashed at their side. It was a summer hipster beer vibe and we were digging it. 

Having secured our barrel table, my beer buddy and I went to a pour truck set up nearer the entrance. You can get a beer here or proceed to their covered patio, which provides access to an enclosed bar area. Credit cards are welcome. Gift cards are available too.

I can't remember the exact name of the beer I had, but it was a crisp, fresh, and balanced citrus IPA. I want to say it was space-themed, as in UFOs or something like that. The alcohol content was about 7 percent, a sweet spot for a craft beer, at least for my dollar. Much higher beers have more bite, and for my beer dollar, I like something a little punchier than lager and not quite a three-day bender starter. I want to say that my friend had a Cactus Juice IPA, and he liked it enough to order another, and maybe, another. Who is to say exactly how many. Hmm. 

Be aware that Grist House closes a bit earlier, 10 PM. Well, maybe that is not super early, but early enough that when it was time for the last call, my friend and I wandered back along E. Sherman Street and turned the corner to find another bar. Such is the great bar scene in Millvale; there is something for everyone. 

My buddy Ubered down too, which cost him about $16 from the Point Breeze area. Earlier in the day, he griped that when he checked up for a 10-minute ride to Grist House, it was around $30, but that was likely due to the Millvale Music Festival. 

I drove the Jeep Wrangler with the top down and parked about a block or two away, conveniently right before another bar. I love Millvale. The neighborhood surrounding the Grist House Craft Brewery is tried and authentic Pittsburgh. 

Millvale is not the gentrified Lawrenceville and maintains a lot of its original character, hoping it stays that way. Situated down in a bowl, when you enjoy a beer at Grist House Craft Brewery, you get scenic views of the surrounding homes. 

This view from the Grist House is oddly weird and cool because scenic sites tend to be labeled such from the perspective of being up high on a vista looking down. Still, there is something extraordinary about drinking in an open industrial lot gazing up at the rim of row houses that grow like the trees on the banks of the Millvale's crowning slopes and hills. 

If you are a craft beer lover looking for a fantastic outdoor place to enjoy a craft beer in a casual summer setting, you can't go wrong with the Grist House Craft Brewery in Millvale. 

The beer is fresh, crisp, complete, and well-balanced. The servers are friendly, and the crowd is just about right for a summer weekend night with a cold craft beer in your hand.
