Koelschip, 4.2% ABV
While it might not necessarily be touted a=s a spring brew, this Koelschip is a wheaty, light, easy to down sour. Draai Laag also boasts one of the nicest outdoor drinking spots in the area with a large patio complete with string lights in the middle of a wooded valley -- it'll feel like you aren’t in Pittsburgh anymore. And we guess technically you aren’t; you’re in Millvale.
Amber ale, 5.5% ABV
Perhaps the ultimate in spring ‘Burgh brews is Penn Brewery’s Penn American pale ale because, get this, it's only available at the venue for America’s greatest pastime: PNC Park. Yup, you can only enjoy this ale on draft at a Pittsburgh Pirates game. And there's obviously nothing like kicking back with a beer in the best ballpark in America staring at the best city in America. That’s just fact.

Laura Zorch is big into spring and porch beers paired with cheese, because amazing. Say hey to her at @eatpgh.
