Sustainable Pittsburgh is proud to be a 2018 Small Business Saturday Neighborhood Champion.

On Friday, November 2, stop by either of East End Brewing Company’s locations during happy hour to talk with Sustainable Pittsburgh and learn more about how you can shop small and shop sustainable this holiday season.
