PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania – (Nov. 13, 2021) Pittsburgh’s first competitive axe-throwing business continues to add to it repertoire with a new partnership. LumberjAxes has teamed up with KingView Mead, Wine & Hard Cider to offer a full-service bar at its Cranberry location. Customers will be able to enjoy a large selection of KingView meads, wines and ciders, along with an assortment of beer and liquor from around Pennsylvania, while partaking in some axe-throwing.
Opened in 2017, LumberjAxes is Pittsburgh’s first axe-throwing business and remains the bustling gold-standard, with the area’s largest venues and most immersive experiences. Creating a fun, welcoming atmosphere for adults of all experience levels, from old hands to newbies encountering their inner lumberjacks for the first time, LumberjAxes provides all the axes you can throw, along with experts to instruct on proper technique and safety.
Produced in Pleasant Hills, with locations at the Tanger Outlets and Mt. Lebanon, KingView Mead, Wine & Cider prides itself on creating a feel-good company supporting local by being a PA Preferred producer. Over 75% of its meads, wines and ciders are made from ingredients sourced in the state. In addition to providing drinks to enjoy on-site, the bar at LumberjAxes in Cranberry will offer KingView products to take home.
“Our KingView at Cranberry Lumberjaxes partnership is perfect for those looking for entertainment and a unique drinking experience,” says KingView owner Scott Neeley. “We hope to see you there soon!”
Meanwhile, at LumberjAxes’ original Millvale location, Sliders Curling is now open for a third winter. This seasonal offshoot of the axe-throwing operation is America’s first competitive, bar-style ice curling rink, offering a more accessible version of the sport. With the 2022 Winter Olympics unfolding in Beijing in February, Sliders will be ready to welcome the curious looking for a taste of the unusual ice sport they saw on TV.
On Sliders’ four-lane curling sheet, individual competitors take turns throwing their Olympic-style stones while standing on rubber mats, rather than walking on and sweeping the ice as in the traditional version of curling. The lanes are outdoors under a tent, but curlers can dip inside to warm up at the Millvale location’s full bar. The operation will stay open throughout the cold months, likely into early April.
In addition to Millvale and Cranberry, LumberjAxes also has locations in Mt. Lebanon and Monroeville, where participants can enjoy axe-throwing and BYOB.
“We strive to create unexpected experiences,” says LumberjAxes Founding Partner Corey Deasy “Whether it’s a drink you’ve never tasted or a sport you’ve never played before, we want to help folks in Pittsburgh mix it up. They’ve been game to try everything we’ve offered so far, so we’re going to keep going.”
