District Brew Yards, Pittsburgh Location
District Brew Yards is located in the former KLM Produce Terminal in Pittsburgh.
It was announced in
September, 2020 that District Brew Yards signed on as a tenant.
The owners of District Brew Yards are from Chicago and started in business in 2020, which is a quick expansion. Expanding out of state is also surprising.

District Brew Yards, Chicago Location
District Brew Yards is a Chicago based company that is “The nation’s first collective brewery, pour-your-own beer hall and shop under one roof”. The Chicago location, opened in 2019, has four breweries:
Around the Bend Beer Co., Bold Dog Beer Co., Burnt City Brewing, and Casa Humilde Cervecería. The address is 417 N. Ashland Ave. Chicago, IL 60622, which is the same for the four breweries as shown on their respective websites. They appear to operate independently from one another but share a common service area.
The breweries share brewing facilities.

District Brew Yards partnered with Structured Development to transform a warehouse into this beer destination. Burnt City Brewing seems to be the principal brewing company. Casa Humilde Cervecería is noted on District Brew Yards’ website but other entities have them omitted.
