Greetings, craft beer ladies! We have a lot of exciting events in the works for the upcoming months. Including, but not limited to, the following:
Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week
The Pittsburgh Beer Ladies will be taking part in Pittsburgh's 1st annual craft beer week. This event was created in conjunction with Pittsburgh Brewniversity and is currently scheduled for Monday, April 23 from 7:00PM-8:30PM. This event, open to both women and men, will begin with an overview of the role of women in the local and national craft beer industry. The main portion of this event will be spent on education using the "beer wheel." Attendees will sample various beers and mark the flavors they think they taste on the beer wheel. The person leading the event will discuss the tasting notes for each beer and entertain questions so everyone understands how to describe what it is they are tasting.
Copper Kettle Brewing Company
Have you ever wanted to brew your own beer but didn't know where to start? Let the PBL and Copper Kettle Brewing Company help you out. Copper Kettle, right next to Hough's Tap Room and Brew Pub, has the all equipment and the recipes. In May, those wanting to take part will be divided into groups of 5 (only 5 people can be on a kettle) and assigned a beer. When we're all done, we can swap bottles...which leads us to our June event.
PBL Beer Swap
In June, PBL will be renting a park and having our 1st annual beer swap! This event will be also open to spouses and significant others of the male persuasion. Those attending will bring a case of one of their favorite brews to share with the group. We will also bring samples of our Copper Kettle beer so those who couldn't make it to the previous event may sample our creations.
As you can see, we have quite a bit planned so please stay tuned for details! More information on all the these events, as well as any others added, will be posted soon. If you have any questions or would like us to visit a particular venue or feature a specific brewery, please feel free to post here or send me an email.
