2015 Barrel Roll

May 1, 2015 - 5:00pm

It's time to open the Barrelhouse for the summer season! To kick things off, we've assigned some of the most creative and talented Pittsburgh partners to the task of building a barrel-carrying contraption to bring a whiskey barrel from the distillery to the barrelhouse on May 1st. 

A ticket to the Barrel Roll gets you a spot on team during the trek, where along the way you'll make stops at a couple of local businesses for refreshments. 

Ticket inclues a shot of whiskey at the distillery upon arrival, snacks at Bar Marco, a beer sample at Penn Brewery, and participation on a partering-organization barrel roll team. In other words, a whole lot of festivity. 

Grab tickets for the opening party at the Barrelhouse immediately following the Barrel Roll here

Teams will leave the distillery by 5:30 PM. A shuttle will be provided to bring barrel rollers back to the Strip District after the Barrelhouse Party.
