Taste small-batch local whiskeys in downtown Pittsburgh.

Stop #2:

Speaking of drinking…You’re drinking Rye. Why? Because Pittsburgh invented it (we heard). Rye is to Pittsburgh like Bourbon is to Kentucky. Other cities produce Rye but our sources tell us that Steel City poured the first Rye Whiskey here in Pittsburgh. And this city sure knows how to keep this spicy libation flowing. Try a flight of Wigle whiskey as you leave William Penn Hotel then stop by Butcher & The Rye if you need a little more…proof.
