The road to hell is paved with good intentions.


You would never suspect that, at the end of a quiet residential street in Mount Pleasant, some mischief would be brewing. 

Helltown Brewing was started in 2011 by Shawn Gentry and several homebrewing friends.  They found a used 15-barrel brewing system in Colorado, and set up shop in the old mechanic's garage where we are still brewing today.  The brewery still has an industrial feel to match the usual soundtrack on brew days.

While Helltown is a production brewery, we do have a tasting area where you are welcome to drink a pint, sample a flight or grab a growler to go. When the weather is nice, sit outside and drink that pint with your friends. Most Saturdays and some Fridays we'll have a food truck parked in front.  Check the Hours & Events page. 


Quality is our main focus.  We use high-quality grains for all of our beers, and aren't sparing when it comes to hops.  While we work on expanding, we will not sacrifice the quality of our liquids.

We are also committed to our community.  All spent grain is donated to local farmers, and all of merchandise is bought from local businesses.  We also support a variety of local charities in Mt. Pleasant and Pittsburgh.
