Wexford Ale House Named “King of the Wings”



The Wexford Ale House on Perry Highway has plenty to celebrate! They entered the Pittsburgh King of the Wings contest this year for the first time, and won the 2016 People’s Choice award for best overall wings! The wings are made in a truly authentic Buffalo-style and accompanied with a homemade bleu cheese dressing.

Known for featuring a wide variety and an ever-changing selection of craft beers, with over 40 drafts on tap with many from Pennsylvania, the Wexford Ale House is also proud to be unveiling its very own black wheat IPA, known as the Wexford Ale House’s “Scorched Earth.” Ideal for fall, this robust IPA was crafted in conjunction with Reclamation Brewing to create both subtle and provocative flavors that had a tremendous showing at this year’s Big Pour event.

Owner David Smith, originally founded the Wexford Ale House because, “I thought there was a need for a craft beer place in the area, as there weren’t any good ones around.  I moved from the South Side, where places like Fat Heads and Smokin’ Joes always had good craft beer selections, and found myself still going down there to get a good selection even after I moved up here to McCandless.” David, now a proud Pittsburgher, originally hailed from the Buffalo area and is thrilled with the popularity of the Wexford Ale House, and his Western New York specialties such as his authentic wings and ‘Beef on Weck.’ “I love Pittsburgh,” declares David. “My wife is from here, and I’ve been here since 1999.  My oldest son is attending Duquesne University, and the younger one is following him up through the NA school district.” David, Kelly and the entire Wexford Ale House staff are very involved within the community with local charities and scholarship programs with North Allegheny Schools.


This month also marks the Wexford Ale House’s seventh anniversary since taking over Poor Richard’s Pub in Wexford in 2009, bringing the best of craft beers, a tasty menu and plenty of special events and live entertainment to the area. Upcoming events include the Sam Adams’ Stein Hoisting event on October 7 followed by Shelley Duff performing live, plus music acts about every other Friday night. The Sam Adams National Stein Hoisting Competition is searching for two national champions (male and female) to send to the 2017 Oktoberfest celebration in Munich, Germany.
