This week, 90.5 WESA’s Sarah Kovash, Josh Raulerson of the Pennsylvania Environmental Council and Rachel Carlson of Yelp Pittsburgh travel to East End Brewing’s new tap room in the Strip District.

While sipping on some brews, owner Scott Smith talks about all the work that goes into his carefully crafted beers and the delights of being in the Strip District (hello Gaucho takeout!)

    Happy Father's Day weekend to all the dads out there. We know you get "those manly urges and you gotta...fix things and, uh, cook outdoors," so WESA’s Josh and Sarah and Yelp Pittsburgh’s Rachel are here to fill you in on Pittsburgh's "manly" weekend activities. 

The snow has finally melted and the temperatures have risen (albeit a little). So now it's time to brace the outside and find some good food and brews! WESA Digital Editor Sarah Kovash hosts this week, with Yelp Pittsburgh's Rachel Carlson. 

If you like drinking and learning, this Thursday night, head over to the Heinz History Center for Tipsy History. Sip on Wigle Whiskey and check out the Glass: Shattering Notions exhibit, focusing on Pittsburgh's glass-making history.
