Every neighborhood wants its own craft brewery, with good reason. As we wrote in this article about breweries sparking a revival in the Mon Valley and again last spring in this piece about Pittsburgh’s thriving craft beer scene, a local brewery is a great gathering spot, a source of pride for residents and a magnet for other new businesses to locate nearby.

Are you a homebrewer who wants inside tips on making the perfect beer (maybe you’ve even thought about one day opening your own micro-brewery)? Or a beer enthusiast who wants to know more about the new tastes and trends in craft brewing? Are you curious about what a local brewhouse means for the neighborhood it calls home? Or just want to come and drink great beer?

Join NEXTpittsburgh on Tuesday, August 28 at Alloy 26 in Nova Place for a fun and interesting evening all about craft breweries and their impact on the neighborhoods where they’re located.

We’ll hear from Scott Smith of East End Brewing, Jake Voelker of Voodoo Brewery in E. Homestead, Sandy Cindrich of Penn Brewery, Andrew Witchey of Dancing Gnome and Day Bracey of Fresh Fest, as they discuss their craft, trends in brewing and what makes a cult brew.

The dynamic Toni Murphy of Comcast Business will handle the moderating. And of course, we’ll also be enjoying great local beer and local food, so stick around after the talk and raise a glass to our local brewers.

Cheers!
