Who is Big Rail Brewing?
Big Rail Brewing was founded in 2013. It began as a humble homebrewing project with big dreams. From there, with the help of family and friends, it’s grown into a nano-brewery looking to distribute quality brews across western Pennsylvania.
Where can I get your beer?
For now and the near future, you’ll only be able to get it at the Harmony Inn in Harmony, PA. In the not-too-distant future, however, we plan to distribute to some other local restaurants and pubs in the region as well.
When will the beer be available?
It’s available now! Come on by and have a pint.
Why the name ‘Big Rail’?
Big Rail is a nickname for 155-pound and 152-pound rail. That’s 155 pounds per linear yard. Heavy-duty stuff. The heavier the rail, the heavier the freight it can handle. It also won’t wear as quickly. Big Rail is also called “Pennsylvania Special” because it originated with Pennsylvania railroads. Likewise, we started brewing in the mountains of Pennsylvania, and we wanted a name that takes us back to our roots.
