Big beer museum brewing in Pittsburgh

Suck it, Cleveland.

Sure, you have the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But we'll have a beer museum.

"We want this to be a first-day destination attraction such as Pittsburgh doesn't have now," Joe McAllister, principal of the National Beer Museum Development Group LLC, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

His hopes are for Brew: The Museum of Beer to attract hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. The multimillion-dollar museum, expected to employ 200, would be built within the city, close to Downtown's hotels and other attractions, and would open in phases starting in the winter of 2017 or spring of 2018, McAllister said. It would include a brewery and 300-seat restaurant.

An Indiegogo.com crowdfunding campaign is to begin Oct. 18, with a goal of raising $50,000 in startup funds.

McAllister said he hopes a shop will open at brewmuseum.com before Thanksgiving to raise some additional cash — and some buzz.

It's not the only museum of its kind planned for Pittsburgh.

Wigle Whiskey recently began a Kickstarter campaign to establish WAM! Whiskey of America Museum & Beverage Emporium.
