3) 2020 and 2021 have been very tough years for the hospitality industry. Moe’s Southwest Grill‘s local owner, Mike Geiger, appreciates the support his business has received from the communities they have locations in. As a way of repaying the public, Geiger, in collaboration with Easy Street Promotions, has created the Thank You Pittsburgh Brewery Tour with six stops over the next several months at local breweries with free Moe’s food and live music. Tonight’s stop is at Helltown Brewing in Export with Byron Nash performing. 5578 Old William Penn Hwy.
