Google announced the further expansion of Google Offers today. The company says it has launched the product in 13 U.S. cities since the initial launch in Portland, Oregon, and has 25 more markets on the way.

Today, Google Offers comes to Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Google Offers Director of Product Management Eric Rosenblum describes the first offers for these two cities:

Love beer? Live music? And delicious Bavarian fare? Look no further than the Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh where today’s Google Offer is $10 for $30 toward signature beers and savory German-Bavarian dishes. Modeled after the legendary 400+ year-old Hofbräuhaus in Munich, Germany, the Hofbräuhaus brews all its beer in-house including the famous “1810 Prince Ludwig.” This flavorful amber lager is made from the original top-secret recipe first created 200+ years ago in honor of the wedding of Prince Ludwig to his bride Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen.

If you’re craving classic American dishes, check out today’s deal for the award-winning Marathon Grill. A family-owned and operated restaurant for nearly 30 years, many of their delicious offerings are made with fresh ingredients from local farms as well as their very own urban farm in the Brewerytown neighborhood! Stop in and try the 8oz Marathon Burger, Cheesesteak Spring Rolls or the Brownie Sundae Smoothie made with probiotic and active culture nonfat yogurt. At Marathon Grill, eating like a local means eating well -- really well. Today’s Google Offer for Marathon is $8 for $16 toward food and drinks, plus a free soup of the day.

The next deal in Pittsburgh will be for Dave & Andy's Homemade Ice Cream, and in Philly, it will be Campo's, a restaurant known for its Philly sandwiches.

This week, Google added some more features to Google Wallet, including "Featured Offers" to the Offers tab. This shows Google Wallet-exclusive discounts.
