For some reason, beer and geeks seem to go together. Celebrate this combination by joining WPLUG on a field trip to the C/PMuseum of microcomputers and Penn Brewery in the Troy Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh starting at 2:00pm on Saturday, July 16, 2016!

The museum is dedicated to home computers and other small machines from the 1970s on.

Schedule for the Day[edit]

There are three parts to the day's schedule. The events at the brewery are optional - if you only want to visit the museum, that's fine - just meet us at 3:00.

We ask that you RSVP via this Eventbrite page so that we can have a count of how many people to expect.

  • 2:00pm - Penn Brewery tour - see what it takes to run a sizable craft brewing operation
  • 3:00pm - Museum tour - see some of the early machines that stimulated the computing boom
  • 5:00pm - Join us for dinner at Penn Brewery's restaurant and sample their fine German food and beverages

At 2:00pm and 3:00pm, we will meet up outside the entrance to the Penn Brewery restaurant before heading to the respective tours.


The Penn Brewery and C/PMuseum are at the corner of Troy Hill Road and Vinial Street. Parking is available in the garage off Troy Hill Road next to the brewery, or there are some on-street spaces.


The closest bus stop, at Troy Hill Road and Vinial Street, is on the 4 route. Nearby, the 6 and 7 buses can be caught at Chestnut and Phineas Streets or Chestnut and Suismon Streets. A pedestrian walkway leads to the Sarah Heinz House with a stop at East Ohio and Heinz Streets serviced by the 1 and 2 routes. A slightly longer walk provides access to the 54 bus at East Ohio and Chestnut Streets. Please refer to the Port Authority web site to obtain transit schedules for the specific day and time.
