As many of you know, I have a friend who is very active in the Pittsburgh home brewing scene. He recently circulated an email to the Beer Meetup regarding some of the highlights of the upcoming0 Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week (PCBW). I know that some members of this meetup also enjoy beer, so I thought I'd share. This is just a cut and paste of his email, so any time it says that "I" will be doing something, that "I" is my friend, Mike.
The 17th Tap @ Bocktown (details) - Bocktown Beer and Grill: Both Locations - All week long!
In addition to my list, Bocktown has invited a number of local homebrewers (myself included) to put kegs of homebrew on tap at both locations throughout the week. Each night they tap a new keg starting at 7:00pm and pass out 4 oz. samples to everyone over 21 who stops in for dinner.
My beer will be on tap at Bocktown Robinson on 4/27.
