On the first Wednesday of every month the Hofbräuhaus in Pittsburgh holds a special event to tap a new keg of bier. On Wednesday, June 6 the keg for the upcoming PVGP will be tapped – the beer that will fuel the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix! Please join us that day for a ceremonial keg tapping parade and free beer sample starting at 7:00 pm. There will be several tables reserved for us at the front of the room starting at 6:00 in case you want to come early and have dinner. We usually have 50 -75 PVGP supporters in attendance
This will be the fourth year in a row for the ceremony where a PVGP volunteer ceremoniously taps the wooden keg. In 2015 longtime volunteer John Kerr was selected, in 2016 it was Car Show Chairman Bob Speer and last year Paul MacIntyre, a volunteer since 1984. This year, Don Privett will do the honors!
It wouldn’t be a Grand Prix event without cars – sports cars will be on display in front of the Hofbräuhaus on the South Side. Contact Dan DelBianco if you are interested in displaying your car – there is limited space. With BMW as our Marque of the Year we are expecting a large contingent of Bavarian fans and hoping for some special bimmers!
Hofbräuhaus is the Official Bier of the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix and the new pilsner will be served at many of our Race Week functions. The Pilsner is brewed on the premises in the restaurant’s onsite microbrewery by brew master Shawn Setzenfand and his crew. Using an original recipe straight from Munich, Pilsner is described as a “smooth, crisp, and clean on the palate bier.”
