Now more than ever before, craft beer kegs are kicking across the country. People are falling in love with the wide variety of beer being produced by the independent craft beer breweries. Pine Township residents and visitors are no exception. Fortunately, a few local joints are giving the people what they want (and more). Here are the best places for craft beer in and around Pine Township:
Pig Iron Public House
926 Sheraton Drive, Mars, PA 16046
They’ve got 66 beers on tap, locally-sourced food, and seasonal mixed drinks and sangrias. All of the draft beers are $2 off during Happy Hour (Monday-Friday, 5-7pm). Steelers, Penguins, Pirates or Panthers playing? They’ve got plenty of TVs, so pull up a seat.

The Wexford Pub @ Whole Foods
10576 Perry Highway, Wexford, PA 15090
Whole Foods recently took over the old Starbuck’s space in The Wexford Plaza and opened up The Wexford Pub, and it’s turning out to be quite a hit. The Wexford Pub is a combination of a bar, a restaurant, and a beer distributor. They’ve got over 20 beers on tap, a solid bar food menu featuring specials every day of the week, and several large cooler cases packed with a wide variety of single bottles and six packs to-go. They sport a pool table and plenty of flat-screens as well. The Pub and the grocery store are connected by a hallway, and they have no problem with you buying food at the grocery and eating it at the pub. Pine Township residents: check them out! Oh yeah, be sure to ask for Dave - he's the beer expert with the beard and the big smile. :-)
Recommendation: Southern Tier Pumking (Pumpkin Ale, 9% ABV), Black Cherry Wings
The Wexford Ale House
