The Olive tap was founded by Rick Petrocelly in Illinois in the late 1990’s before the Olive Tap Pittsburgh Franchise was established in 2013 by Hersh Petrocelly and his wife, Karen. Originally located in the Pittsburgh Public Market in the Strip District, it relocated to 19th Street in the heart of the Strip District.
