Was ihr unternehmen werdet

Explore Downtown for a whiskey history tour! You’ll learn why Southwestern Pennsylvania is considered the birthplace of American Whiskey, what the Whiskey Rebellion in Pittsburgh was all about, and how Prohibition affected the region in the 1920s. Scout out hidden former (as well as existing!) speakeasies around the city, and discover how whiskey has fueled political, labor and social movements throughout the region. Get to experience the revival of craft spirits in Pittsburgh through a final whiskey tasting at our friends, Wigle Whiskey, in their tasting room in the Omni William Penn Hotel. Find out about Wigle’s own history as a local and family-owned business. 3 small tasters of whiskey will make a great finale of this experience.
And since they are our friends, they'll give us the option to purchase whiskey cocktails after the tour for a special price for only $5! Cheers!

This tour will be about 90 mins long, approx. 1.5 miles of walking

Please note: Due to the current closure of the William Penn Hotel (until August 1), neither the speakeasy nor the Wigle Whiskey Tasting Room can be visited. The final whiskey tasting will take place in our shop (the starting point of the tour), with a variety of different Wigle Whiskeys.

I followed my husband to Pittsburgh five years ago, and saw the opportunity to reinvent myself. Inspired by Michael's entrepreneurial spirit I decided to offer historical tours through Pittsburgh. Since I earned a Master's Degree in Art and Architectural History, and I used to live in Rome (Italy), Berlin (Germany) as well as New York City (all great places for art + architecture), I though this would be e great fit. So I founded Bike the Burgh Tours first in 2015, and added Walk the Burgh Tours a year and a half later. After two years of doing every tour myself, I found some equally passionate and enthusiastic, local tour guides who love this city and also strive for excellence. We love to show off our city, we love our job, and we love meeting people from all around the world! Come join us while exploring the Burgh!

Wo ihr sein werdet

We will start at the Convention Center in the Cultural District and walk our way through the Financial District, to what is nowadays called Uptown, weaving in and out of small alleyways, and former sites of whiskey making, selling and drinking. The tour will end at an original speakeasy and tasting room in the oldest and still operating hotel in town, the William Penn Hotel, which was built in 1916 and is a site full of overwhelming grandeur.

We had a wonderful time! Weather was a bit cold which was out of her hands but we did start the tour off with hit totties which was an excellent touch! Will definitely be recommending to friends and family in the future!

We had Corrie and enjoyed her nerdy stories. We learned a lot about Pittsburgh and Whiskey/Whisky. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to learn the turn of the 20th century Pittsburgh and how local alcohol helped shape it. p.s. ask for Dave at the Omni speakeasy

Such a good time! The weather was brutal but it's February in Pittsburgh. I left feeling like I learned a lot and loved the samples at the end to make you feel warmed up. Definitely would recommend to anyone thinking about checking it out!

Corey was a fantastic guide. Her depth of knowledge and storytelling ability made this a fantastic event. This event went above and beyond our expectations, and we would suggest that anyone who has an opportunity to take this tour do so.
