About Mixed Culture

Cinderlands and Trace are two young breweries who are fired up about these beers. Trace is inoculating spontaneous beer in a coolship just up the hill from the Cinderlands Foederhouse, which won a gold in Brett Beer at GABF 2021.

We want our city to know and love this category just as much as we do. We know that if we have your help convincing them, we'll get there a lot faster. We dream about the day when Pittsburghers are walking around thinking "I just love beer that has a sense of time and place" and "Hey, I know this farm; they supplied the berries for that great punchdown re-fermented foederbier I had last week."

We intend to use the festival as an opportunity to share and enact the values that underlie our love for this category of beer. Bringing dozens of world-class brewers together on this site will allow us to demonstrate our love for the Belgian brewing traditions that inspire us, make a clear connection between local agriculture and beer, showcase fermentation-driven beer, and highlight the complementary roles of brewer and nature in making mixed-fermentation beer.

Hosted at the beautiful Freedom Farms Event Center in Valencia, PA

Safety and Well-Being

Pittsburgh Action Against Rape (PAAR) will provide training to all brewers and vendors so that everyone can play their part in making the festival a safe and enjoyable experience for all. PAAR will also operate a well-being station for people to check out of the festival experience and into a safe space to catch a break or get help if they need it.

#NotMe is a mobile solution that empowers people to safely and quickly report racism, harassment, discrimination or any form of misconduct including safety and compliance issues — whether they've experienced or witnessed them. In turn, #NotMe offers Pittsburgh Mixed Culture access to insights needed to take action and create an accountable, safe, and thriving culture — for everyone.
